I humbly ask for your gift of peace.
Help us to receive it with humility and grace.
Let not the evil and greed that threaten harmony among your children,
Draw us to yourself and your love, that we may live with compassion
towards everyone, even those who do not share our views about
how things ought to be done.
Help us to realize that we can live and thrive
even with our differences if we only try to see that deep in our hearts
we all desire to care for those we love.
Hear our prayer, O God.
Have mercy on us, I pray. Amen.
