Prayer Of The Month

Just now the world is even more turbulent than ever and so this prayer by John Johansen-Berg is a prayer for peace. It involves lighting a candle and setting aside a little time to think. Sometimes we need to do this to create some peace in our own lives. If there is more than one of you when you do this, just change all the pronouns and make it 'we' instead of ‘I’. It will be even more effective.

I light this candle for peace, Lord.
May its light scatter the darkness;
may its flame be a symbol of hope;
may its burning be a sign of faith joining many other lights for peace.

I light this candle for peace.
May my life be an expression of peacemaking;
may I seek to be a light in a dark world,
pointing to you, Jesus, the Prince of Peace,
and following the way of peace.
Let the candle burn as a sign for peace,
Offered to you. Amen
