Prayer for Peace - Pope John Paul II

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
To you, Creator of nature and humanity,
of truth and beauty, I pray:
Hear my voice,
for it is the voice of the victims of all wars and violence among individuals and nations.
Hear my voice,
for it is the voice of all children who suffer
and will suffer when people put their faith
in weapons and war.
Hear my voice,
when I beg you to instill into the heart
of all human beings, the wisdom of peace,
the strength of justice and the joy of fellowship.
Hear my voice,
for I speak for the multitudes in every country
and every period of history who do not want war
and are ready to walk the road of peace.
Hear my voice,
and grant insight and strength so that we may always
respond to hatred with love, to injustice with total dedication to justice,
to need with sharing of self, to war with peace.
O God, hear my voice,
and grant unto the world your everlasting peace.
