peacemakers in a fractured world

God of Peace and Love,
How do we bring peace to the world?
How do we confront the power of anger, hate and violence without resorting to such means ourselves?
How do we overcome ignorance, apathy, hate and prejudice?
How do we address these things not only in others, but also sometimes painfully in ourselves?
How do we find peace in ourselves?
How can we bring peace to others?
How do we confront injustice peacefully?
How do we still heightened emotion?
How do we calm troubled lives?
How do we resolve long-standing and deep -seated conflict?
How do we work for reconciliation in the midst of entrenched enmity, resentment, hatred and bitterness?
God of peace, hope and love,
Join us to your purpose.
Join all to your purpose.
Bring peace.
In the name of the Prince of Peace,
May it be so

Jon Humphries
