Prayer for November 9, 2020: Please pray with me. God of peace, make us instruments of peace. You don’t call us to be peace keepers, but rather peace makers. That’s not easy. That means creating peace where it doesn’t exist already. And if peace doesn’t already reside somewhere, then there is usually conflict, strife, and division. There may even be violence and destruction. Being a peace maker is dangerous. It is risky. Yet, this is our prayer – to make us instruments of your peace. Because it is only with your peace that humanity and all of creation can flourish and thrive. We have tried other paths – history shows that these ways are lacking at best and destructive at worst. Make us instruments of your peace. Amen.
