Prayers for the peace of the world
God our Father, you are the source of all truth and peace:
Look with mercy on your children
Purify our hearts from all hatred falsehood and prejudice
And so guide us by your loving wisdom
That peace and righteousness may be established among all people; Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
(from An Anglican Prayer Book, 1989, page 86)
