A Prayer for the Twelve Days of Christmas

Peter Drury:

Holy One, I pray for peace between peoples

and the wisdom of leaders.

I pray for peoples,

for countries,

and for the spirit that may unite us together.

I pray for a sense of identity

which is more profound than national, but global.

I pray for peace on earth,

good will toward all,

and a song of joy everywhere.

Help us to mend the earth, O God.

I pray for people – here and everywhere –

that we may grow in understanding,

in hope,

in prosperity,

and in faith.

Help the religions of the world not cause division,

but nurture peace.

Help me understand my place in the world.

(Silent Prayer)
