We pray to You, Lord,
God of life and God of those who hope!
Listen to our prayer for the whole world:
for peace among all peoples,
for prosperity in all lands.
We pray to You that evil may be overcome
and that all wars may end.
We pray to You especially for the members
of our Lasallian Family,
who suffer from war, injustice and intolerance,
and for the children
and young people
who are poor and neglected.
We pray too, God, for peace in our lives;
in our towns, in our schools,
in our families and in our hearts.
We pray for a peace that the world cannot give us.
We pray for a peace that will make us whole
and transform us into ambassadors of justice for Your sake.
Lord, give us Your peace!
