The Prayer for Peace

The Prayer for Peace

The world prayer for peace comes from the Vancouver Assembly of the World Council of Churches :
For peace in your country
For the victims of violence everywhere
For those struggling for peace and justice
For churches in conflict situations
For a world without war and violence

Lead me from death to life,
from falsehood to truth,
Lead me from despair to hope,
from fear to trust.
Lead me from hate to love,
from war to peace,
Let peace fill our beings,
our world and our universe. Amen.

This decade has been named as the decade to overcome violence. In the logo, the hands represent a heart, above a broken yellow earth.

Mother's Quote 14

The Grace & Mercy of a Mother's Love....

Only a thought, but the work it wrought,
Can never by tongue or pen be taught,
For it ran through life like a thread of gold
And the life bore fruit a hundred fold.

Only a word! but t'was spoken in love,
With a whispered prayer to the Lord above-
And the angels in heaven rejoiced once more,
For a new-born soul entered through the door.
