Praying for Peace on the Broadway
In response to the violence witnessed this weekend, we observed a minute of silence at 11am. In assembly we lit four candles as we prayed for peace in the world.
We prayed for LOVE
We prayed for TOLERANCE
We prayed for EQUALITY
We prayed for DEMOCRACY
Prayer for Peace
Compassionate God and Father of all,
we are horrified at violence
in so many parts of the world.
It seems that none are safe, and some are terrified.
Hold back the hands that kill and maim;
turn around the hearts that hate.
Grant instead your strong Spirit of Peace -
peace that passes our understanding
but changes lives,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
