Prayers for the Nations of the World.

For peace in our world

God of the nations, whose kingdom rules over all,
   have mercy on our broken and divided world.
Shed abroad your peace in the hearts of people
   and banish from them the spirit that makes for war;
that all races and peoples may learn to live
   as members of one family
   and in obedience to your laws;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

God of righteousness, God of peace,
forgive the selfishness, greed and arrogance
   that cause us to be at enmity one with another.
Help us and all people to live together
   in charity and goodwill;
and teach the nations of the world
   the things that belong to their peace;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Lord God, you want the well-being of people
   and not their destruction.
Take all violence from our midst
   and extinguish hatred in our hearts.
Curb the passion in us
   that makes us seek each other's lives.
Give peace on earth,
   to us and all people.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.

For racial harmony

   God and Father of all, who made of one blood all nations of men to dwell on the face of the earth: deepen our understanding of peoples of other races, languages and customs than our own.
   Teach us to view them in the light of your own all-embracing love and creative purpose; and give us a vision of the true brotherhood of mankind, united under one Father.
   We ask this in the name of him who died that all men might be one, even Jesus Christ our Lord.

We come together in church to worship God, to hear His word and to share the Good news of Jesus,
receiving forgiveness and renewal through His death and resurrection.

We are sent out from church to live as Christian disciples, showing love to others
and living out our faith in all we think, say and do.
