Circuit Prayer


How difficult it is, Lord, 
to achieve a few moments of silence.  
This noisy world presses upon our senses. 
Even if we shut off TV and radio in our home
we hear the distant hum of traffic
and the vibration of planes overhead. 
Some people are so attuned to noise 
that they shun silence as ominous, 
whereas it has a healing virtue all of its own. 

Prayers of Peace


To you, Creator of nature and humanity,
in truth and beauty I pray:

Hear my voice,
for it is the voice of 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 instil into the hearts of all human beings
the wisdom of peace,
the strength of justice,
and the joy of fellowship.
