Prayer For Peace

O Beyond Understanding, O Wellspring of Peace,

be peace on my tongue
and peace in each breath

be peace where I connect
and peace when I am alone

be peace enough for this one life
and peace enough for this universal life

let frustration be tempered by dialogue
and disaster be met with willing hands

carry hope into the heart of cynicism
and healing to earth’s wounds fresh with oil

where I can, let me be part of your peace
and where I cannot…well, remind me that I can

not because I am so good at peacemaking
but because you are, in action and in essence.

You are Peace Beyond Understanding.
