Prayer and Action for Peace — Ana Gobledale, UK

Peace
Your promise
Our hope

Peace in our communities…
Unite us to raise our voices against violence in our homes
in our churches
in our schools
in our work places

Peace on our earth…
Unite us to take a stand, to act
to become eco-churches
to go green in our homes and communities
to demand powers support agreements and protocols
to protect our lands and rivers from harm

Peace in the marketplace…
Unite us to make a difference
to promote sustainable production and consumption
to support ecological security over national security
to put our money to work for justice through fair trade and fair taxes

Peace among people…
Unite us to be peace makers
building peace among people
promoting human rights
churning arms into ploughshares
Peace perfect peace
Show us how to walk the peace path

Your hope
Our promise.
