Opening Prayer: Peace Sunday


O God, you are a God of Life to us.

You show your Self as our source of compassion

as we struggle for whole relationships in the home,

our communities, our nation and our world. 

We recognize your presence among us in our life and worship,

and ask your gentle Spirit to constantly open our hearts

to the ways of justice and peace. 

We ask all of this in your Name,

because you alone are holy,

our true justice and peace.
