Please join us in the peace prayer for May 2017:

Dear Heavenly Father,

Bring an end to violence and hatred and discord.  Steady the feet  that would rush into war, and the finger poised on the trigger.

Bring justice to the downtrodden,  restoration to the marginalized, hope to the hopeless. Guide those in power, and give them wisdom to use their power wisely.

Give them, and all of us, the grace to admit when we are wrong, and to seek forgiveness.  Give us the grace to forgive.

Give us peace.

Amen

World and Regional Concerns
God of peace, of justice, of love, You are good beyond all that is good. 
Invite all of humanity to experience your kingdom more fully - even now, even here.
To find it among your imperfect people and in unlikely places and times. In suffering as fully as in joy, for this is how you choose to come and be and live; WITH US in our actual living of messy lives. 
Lord, You are the strength of the weary.

Heal the dissensions which divide us from one another and from ourselves. We pray for peace in communities near and far, peace in our hearts, peace among the wondrous diversity of people you have made, peace between countries, between religions, between ideologies, and regions. We pray for the presence of your surpassing peace in each mind, and it's comfort and compassion felt in each life. Bring vitality and healing to those whose health and safety have been threatened, especially by the Zika virus, earthquakes, drought, storms, contaminated water supplies, homelessness, hopelessness, and trauma. 

Fill us each with active and holy compassion for ALL your people, and make us mindful of those WE harm with our choices, willful blindness, and apathy. May your grace, love, and hope be made known, and lived-out in us more fully, so that EACH may taste the sweet goodness you give so freely to all!
