Prayer for today

This week’s prayer for peace in all aspects of our lives comes from the Christian resources website,, with a few modifications from Lucy.

Almighty God, we thank you for our lives,
We give you praise for your abundant mercy and grace
Poured out upon us.

We thank you for your faithfulness 
Even though we are not always faithful to you.
Lord Jesus, we ask you to give us peace 
In our mind, body, soul and spirit.

We ask you to heal us
And cleanse us from all those things 
Causing us stress, grief and sorrow. 

Guide our path through life
And make our enemies at peace with us.
Let your peace reign in our family,
at our places of work and leisure
and all that we touch.
