A Prayer for Peace, Justice and Goodwill
Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
you created us in your image and likeness,
forming one human family.
In your enduring love,
you have promised to never leave us.
In the midst of strife and turmoil in our land,
we ask you for peace.
May victims of injustice be relieved of their suffering.
Help us, your children, to be people of goodwill,
radiating the light of faith.
May the example of Mary, the Queen of Peace,
move us to be more faithful disciples of your Son.
Send your Holy Spirit to inspire us in word and deed,
as we strive to bring about your kingdom here on earth.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
