Before beginning, take three deep breaths to center yourself.
Father, we hear on the news about the violence around the world and we long for your peace. We long for the peace only you can give and sustain. Fill your children’s hearts with love for you and each other. Grant wisdom and discernment to world leaders that they might rule with equity and justice for all people. May we take a stand with those who are oppressed and downtrodden that we might bring about positive change in your world. In Christ’s name we pray, AMEN.
Close with the Lord’s Prayer, pausing between each word.
