The Prayer of Saint Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred ... let me sow love.
Where there is injury ... pardon.
Where there is doubt ... faith.
Where there is despair ... hope.
Where there is darkness ... light.
Where there is sadness ... joy.
Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled ... as to console,
to be understood ... as to understand,
to be loved ... as to love,
for it is in giving ... that we receive,
it is in pardoning ... that we are pardoned,
it is in dying ...
that we are born to eternal life.

Baha'i Prayer for Peace

Be generous in prosperity,
and thankful in adversity.
Be fair in judgement,
and guarded in thy speech,
Be a lamp unto those who walk in darkness,
and a home to the stranger.
Be eyes to the blind, and a guiding light
unto the feet of the erring.
Be a breath of life to the body of humankind,
a dew to the soil of the human heart,
and a fruit upon the tree of humility.
..........................

Buddhist Prayer for Peace

May all beings everywhere plagued
with sufferings of body and mind
quickly be freed from their illnesses.
May those frightened cease to be afraid,
and may those bound be freed.
May the powerless find power,
and may people think of befriending one another.
May those who find themselves in trackless,
fearful wilderness ---
the children, the aged, the unprotected ---
be guarded by beneficial celestials,
and may they swiftly attain Buddhahood.

Hindu Prayer for Peace

Oh God, lead us from the unreal to the Real.
Oh God, lead us from darkness to light.
Oh God, lead us from death to immortality.
Shanti, Shanti, Shanti unto all.
Oh Lord God almighty, may there be
peace in celestial regions.
May there be peace on Earth.
May the waters be appeasing.
May herbs be wholesome, and may
trees and plants bring peace to all.
May all beneficient beings bring peace to us.
May thy Vedic Law propagate peace
all through the world.
May all things be a source of peace to us.
And may thy peace itself, bestow peace on all
and may that peace come to me also.

Jainist Prayer for peace

Peace and Universal Love is the essence
of the Gospel preached by all
Enlightened Ones.
The Lord has preached that equanimity
is the dharma
Forgive do I creatures all,
and let all creatures forgive me.
Unto all have I amity, and unto none enmity.
Know that violence is the root cause of
all miseries in the world.
Violence, in fact, is the knot of bondage.
"Do not injure any living being."
This is the eternal, perrenial, and
unalterable way of spiritual life.
..........................

Native American Prayer for Peace

Almighty God, the Great
Thumb we cannot evade to tie any knot;
the Roaring Thunder that splits mighty trees:
the all-seeing Lord up on high who sees
even the footprints of an antelope on
a rock mass here on Earth.
You are the one who does
not hesitate to respond to our call.
you are the cornerstone of peace.
..........................

Another Native American Prayer for Peace

Oh Great Spirit of our Ancestors,
I raise my pipe to you.
To your messengers the four winds, and to
Mother Earth who provides for your children.
Give us the wisdom to teach our children
to love, to respect, and to be kind to each
other so that they may grow with peace of mind.
Let us learn to share all good things that
you provide for us on this Earth.
..........................

Shinto Prayer for Peace

Although the people living across the ocean
surrounding us, I believe are all
our brothers and sisters,
why are there constant troubles in this world?
Why do winds and waves rise in the
oceans surrounding us?
I only earnestly wish that the wind will
soon puff away all the clouds which are
hanging over the tops of mountains.
..........................

Zoroastrian Prayer for Peace

We pray to God to eradicate all the
> misery in the world:
that understanding triumphs over ignorance,
that generosity triumphs over indifference,
that trust triumphs over contempt, and
that truth triumphs over falsehood.
..........................

Sikh Prayer for Peace

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 victory endures in consequences
of which no one is defeated.
..........................

Christian Prayer for Peace

Blessed are the PEACEMAKERS,
for they shall be known as
the Children of God.
But I say to you that hear, love your enemies,
do good to those who hate you,
bless those who curse you
pray for those who abuse you.
To those that strike you on the cheek,
offer the other one also,
and from those who take away your cloak,
do not withhold your coat as well.
Give to everyone who begs from you,
and of those who take away your goods,
do not ask for them again.
And as you wish that others would do to you,
do so to them.
..........................

Muslim Prayer for Peace

In the name of Allah,
the beneficent, the merciful.
Praise be to the Lord of the
Universe who has created us and
made us into tribes and nations
That we may know each other, not that
we may despise each other.
If the enemy incline towards peace, do
thou also incline towards peace, and
trust God, for the Lord is the one that
heareth and knoweth all things.
And the servants of God,
Most gracious are those who walk on
the Earth in humility, and when we
address them, we say "PEACE."
