In peace let us pray to the Lord.

 

We thank You, Master and Lover of mankind,

King of the ages and giver of all good things,

for destroying the dividing wall of enmity

and granting peace to those who seek Your mercy.

We appeal to You to awaken the longing for a peaceful life

in all those who are filled with hatred for their neighbors,

thinking especially of those at war or preparing for war.

Grant peace to Your servants.

Implant in them the fear of You

and confirm in them love one for another.

Extinguish every dispute

and banish all temptations to disagreement.

For You are our peace and to You we ascribe glory:

to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,

now and forever and unto ages of ages. Amen.

 

We pray, Lord our God, for all those who suffer from acts of war, especially for the victims and all those in the struggles

in Egypt and Syria.

We pray for Your peace and Your mercy

in the midst of the great suffering

that people are now inflicting on each other.

Accept the prayers of Your Church,

so that by Your goodness peace may return to all peoples.

Hear us and have mercy on us.

 

Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy.

 

Lord our God, remember and have mercy

on our brothers and sisters who are involved in every civil conflict.

Remove from their midst all hostility, confusion and hatred.

Lead everyone along the path of reconciliation and peace,

we pray You, hear us and have mercy on us.

 

Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy.

 

Let all believers turn aside from violence and

do what makes for peace.

By the strength of Your mighty arm save Your people

and Your Holy Church from all evil oppression;

hear the supplications of all who call to You

in sorrow and affliction, day and night.

Merciful God, let their lives not be lost,

we pray You, hear us and have mercy.

 

Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy.

 

But grant, O Lord, peace, love and speedy reconciliation

to Your people whom You have redeemed with Your precious blood. Make Your presence known to those who have turned away

from You and do not seek You, so that none of them may be lost,

but all may be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth,

so that everyone, O long-suffering Lord,

may praise thine Your holy Name. Amen.
