Prayer for peace on Earth – Day 9

Let us pray then, with all fervour for this peace which our Divine redeemer came to bring us. May he banish from the souls of all people whatever might endanger peace. May he transform all people into witnesses of truth, justice and brotherly love. May he illumine with his light the minds of rulers, so that, besides caring for the proper material welfare of their peoples, they may also guarantee them the fairest gift of peace.

Pacem in Terris

  • How does the Lord want to transform me into a ‘witness’?
  • Can I be open to this as I ponder God’s Word today?

As we long for peace we remember our brothers and sisters of all faiths – and none – who share our longings.


Prayer of St Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred let me sow love.
Where there is injury; pardon.
Where there is doubt; faith.
Where there is despair; hope.
Where there is darkness; light.
Where there is sadness; joy.
