Light of the world,
bless all who are in darkness,
shine upon us in love.
Be with the despairing.
Support the depressed.
Comfort the suicidal.
Give us your hope,
give us your joy,
give us your peace.
Lighten our darkness
today and evermore, Amen.

Peace Prayer

Peace between me
and each friend.
Peace in the morning
and at the day’s end.
Peace in each hour
and the whole day.
Peace on my journey
and all of the way.
Peace in the work
that I need to do.
Peace in my life.
Peace comes from You.
Old Preacher’s greeting to a new day:
Help me remember
that nothing is
going to happen
to me today
that You and I
can’t handle.
