Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

For Peace

Lord Christ,

at times we are like strangers on this earth,
taken aback by all the violence, the harsh oppositions.

Like a gentle breeze, you breathe upon us the Spirit of peace.

Transfigure the deserts of our doubts,
and so prepare us to be bearers of reconciliation
wherever you place us,
until the day when a hope of peace
dawns in our world.
