Blogging for Peace Wednesday, June 6, 2007


O God, Source of Life, Creator of Peace. . .

Help Your children, anguished and confused,

To understand the futility of hatred and violence

And grant them the ability to stretch across
Political, religious and national boundaries
So they may confront horror and fear

By continuing together In the search for justice, peace and truth. . . .

With every fiber of our being We beg You, O God,

To help us not to fail nor falter.

---Rabbi H. Rolando Matalon
Congregation B'nai Jeshurun, New York, NY

Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy 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;

and where there is sadness, joy.

O 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,

and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.

I’d like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I’d like to hold in in my arms and keep it company
I’d like to see the world for once
All standing hand in hand
And hear them echo through the hills
Ah, peace throughout the land.

Loved your post and your globe. Peace to you, my friend!
