“Almighty God, mercifully hear the pleading of Your people, and bestow Your peace on our times.”

Reflection:
Peace – a state of harmony, a condition of quiet and serenity. How we long for such peace for ourselves and for all humankind.

Prayer:
Lord God, we hunger and thirst for peace. Greed and power often replace kindness and care. Have mercy on “our times” and show us the way.
