Prayers for Peace on Remembrance Sunday

9th November 2014

 

Today is Remembrance Sunday

We remember all those who have fallen in war, and also the deaths of countless men, women and children who have died because of war.

We pray for those, whose lives are devastated by war,

For the communities torn apart by enemy action, for the children orphaned by war

 

Lord Jesus, Prince of Peace, comfort those who mourn

Lord hear us

Today is Remembrance Sunday

And yet the drumbeat of war grows ever louder in this troubled world, the drumbeat that is fuelled by greed and ideology and the lust for power.

We pray for all the communities that are caught up in these terrible conflicts, for Christians, Muslims and people of other faiths. We pray for those who work to bring peace to these regions

 

Lord Jesus, Prince of Peace, may your light shine in our world,

Lord hear us

 

We pray for a time when civilians are no longer legitimate targets,

For an end to terrorist activity,

For an end to suicide bombings

(pause)

Christ Prince of Peace,

Hear our prayer

 

We pray for the politicians and other leaders in the world who hold the keys to war. We pray that their hearts may be open to working for peace and justice in our world

(pause)

Christ Prince of Peace,

Hear our prayer
