WINCS INTERFAITH PRAYER FOR PEACE – Compiled by Judie
Let us gather today in prayer for peace… Oooommmm shanti, shanti, shanti. Creator of the Universe, fill our hearts with peace. Give us that divine spark to make us a channel of your peace.
For peace in our own homes, it is said that making peace between two people is more precious than prayers and fasting. Ameen
For peace between neighbors, we are told to love our neighbors as thy self. Amen
For peace in our community, our cities and country, we are told by the prophets to welcome the stranger and to be our brother’s keeper. Shalom.
Let us know peace. For as long as the moon shall rise, for as long as the rivers shall flow, for as long as the sun shall shine, for as long as the grass shall grow, Let us know peace says our Cheyenne Natives.
For peace in our world, it is said that we are like a link, Golden Chain of Love that stretches around the world. Keep our link bright and strong. Namaste.
God adjudges us according to our deeds, not the coat that we wear: that truth is above everything, but higher still is truthful living. Know that we attaineth God when we loveth, and only that victory endures in consequences of which no one is defeated.
Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh
Om lokoh samastah sukhino bhavantu.
May all beings everywhere be happy and free.
Good day, As salamu alaykum, Shalom aleikhem, Sat shri akal, Namaste
