Prayer For Peace

Published by

Out of chaos, Beauty, out of mystery, Light—

Secrets wrapped within the velvet of the night .


STAR MAKER,

Though we do not understand the catastrophic,

Galactic history of our Universe,

We are gathered here together

In this world,

In this Garden,

To find Unity and Common Strength . . .

TEACH US HOW.

Help us unlearn Bias that we might embrace Community.

Help us each to look inside ourselves

And see You again,

CELL MAKER,

SOUL MAKER!

Though we cannot fully understand our own

Often chaotic human history,

We choose

To respond to Your Faith in us.

Multiply in us, Abrahamic children

Like the countless stars in heaven

HOPE,

CHARITY,

And openness to first accept Your Embrace,

That we might turn and greet each other

With the loveliest words we can utter:

PEACE BE WITH YOU!
