Prayer: Bless the Peacemakers


Here’s a prayer of blessing for peacemakers from John Birch.

Prayer: Bless the Peacemakers

Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they shall be called children of God. Matthew 5:9

Bless those who are peacemakers
From all creeds and cultures
All who bring no other agenda
Than to see neighbour and stranger
Live together as one community

Bless the peacemakers
Strengthen and bless them

Bless those who are comforters
Shoulders to cry upon
Willing ears to listen
A present help in times
Of despair and hopelessness

Bless the peacemakers
Strengthen and bless them

Bless those who are healers
Of physical injury
And deeper hurts
Whose touch brings relief
From trauma and pain
Who brings compassion

Bless the peacemakers
Strengthen and bless them
