OSMTH Prayer for Peace

Almighty God, the Creator of all, we remind ourselves daily, in our ecumenical Christian and chivalric Order, that the psalmist of old bids us to "Pray for the peace and prosperity of Jerusalem and of all peoples". With broken hearts, bruised bodies and wounded souls, we come before you, praying for peace to reign in the hearts and minds of all people throughout the whole world.

We remember that we are born of God, redeemed by Jesus Christ, and filled with the Holy Spirit. Help all nations and all peoples to put away the crimes of war, the tyrannies of terror, the battles of bitterness and cruelty of one person to another. Help us to see all people as members of the great family of humanity, under God, in a fellowship of peace; with love one for another in the dignity of the human form you have created.

Lord Jesus, you died in the midst of crisis on Calvary's Hill. You were laid in the Sepulchre of Jerusalem and rose above it all to free us from sin and death. Let us now, as Children of God, Sons and Daughters of Abraham, and People of Faith, be dead to the sins of warfare and cruelty; and let us follow a new life of peace, justice and unity.

Today we remember in prayers those of this world who live in the midst of injustice, fear, war, terror, disease, hunger, danger and with death as their constant companion. Have mercy upon them and help us to eliminate cruelty wherever it is found, to establish peace, and to live together as one great family.

This prayer we offer through Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, and the Author of our Salvation. And to that we say: Amen, Amen, and Amen.
