Litany for Peace

Here’s a litany for peace from the Archdiocese of Dublin website.

Peace Litany

When peace is fragile, stay with us, Lord.
When tempers are raised, stay with us, Lord.
When atrocities occur, stay with us, Lord.
When forgiveness is rejected, stay with us, Lord.
When talks break down, stay with us, Lord.
When agreements are broken, stay with us, Lord.
When darkness weighs upon us, stay with us, Lord.
When we cannot see you, stay with us, Lord.
When burdens feel too heavy, stay with us, Lord.
When hope seems faint, stay with us, Lord.
When we are weak, stay with us, Lord.
When faith seems difficult, stay with us, Lord.

For all who have lost hope, walk with them, Lord.  
For all who suffer, walk with them, Lord.  
For all who are sick and in pain, walk with them, Lord.  
For all who are struggling, walk with them, Lord.  
For all who have been badly hurt in life, walk with them, Lord.  
For all who are grieving, walk with them, Lord.  
For all who are depressed, walk with them, Lord.  
For all who feel rejected, walk with them, Lord.  
For all who feel unloved, walk with them, Lord.  
For all who are oppressed, walk with them, Lord.  
For all who are anxious, walk with them, Lord.
