Call to PrayerLet our prayer rise before you,
God of all peoples and nations.
May your grace ll the world.
Sanctify the work of our hands.
Bring forth the reign of your Son
 A kingdom of justice and mercy.
Psalm 67
Let every nation sing your praise, every nation on earth.
Favor and bless us, Lord.Let your face shine on us, revealing your way to all peoples,salvation the world over.
Let nations sing your praise, every nation on earth.
The world will shout for joy, for you rule the planet with justice.In fairness you govern the nations and guide the peoples of earth.
Let nations sing your praise, every nation on earth.
The land delivers its harvest, God, our God, has blessed us.O God, continue your blessing, may the whole world worship you.
Let nations sing your praise, every nation on earth.
ReectionConsider the violence that poverty does to individuals, families and communities and howpoverty is a threat to peace. How can we be bridges across cultural and religious divides so thatwe are truly people of peace and nonviolence?Interfaith Prayer for Peace from the Abrahamic Faith Communities
(From the Jewish tradition)
Grant us peace, Your most gracious gift, O Eternal Source of peace,and give us the will to proclaim its message to all the people on earth.Bless our country, that it may always be a stronghold of peace,and its advocate among the nations.May contentment reign within its borders,health and happiness within its homes.Strengthen the bonds of friendship among the inhabitants of all lands. And may the love of Your name hallow every home and every heart.
Peace Prayer: God of all Peoples and Nations
Blessed is the Eternal God, source of Peace.
(From the Muslim Tradition)
In the name of Allah, the benecent, the merciful.Praise be to the Lord of the Universewho has created us and made us into tribes and nations.That we may know each other, not that we may despise each other.If the enemy incline towards peace, do thou also incline towards peace,and trust God, for God is the one that hears and knows all things. And the servants of God, most gracious are those who walk onthe Earth in humility, and when we address them, we say “PEACE.”
(From the Catholic Tradition - St Francis of Assisi)
Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace;where there is hatred, let me sow love;where there is injury, pardon;where there is doubt, faith;where there is despair, hope;where there is darkness, light;and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not
so much seek to be consoled as to console;to be understood as to understand;to be loved, as to love;for it is in giving that we receive,it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
 IntercessionsO God of the nations, we join with you in our longing for peace among all peoples of the earth.We acknowledge our failings to promote peace, and we ask pardon, as we pray,
Make us instruments of your peace.
We pray that graced dialogue among peoples will help us overcome distrust and fear.
Make us instruments of your peace.
We pray that fairness will replace destructive economic competition between countries.
Make us instruments of your peace.
We pray that mutual respect among nations and peoples will replace exploitation.
Make us instruments of your peace.
