Prayer for Peace

Lord Jesus Christ, you are the way of peace.
Come into the brokenness of our lives and our land
     with your healing love.
Help us to e willing to bow before you in true repentance,
     and to bow to one another in real forgiveness.
By the fire of your Holy Spirit, melt our hard hearts
     and consume the pride and prejudice which separate us.
Fill us, O Lord, with your perfect love, which casts out our fear,
and bind us together in that unity
     which you share with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

from The United Methodist Book of Worship
