A Prayer for World Peace

Dear God,

We lift up our hearts to You today and pray for peace in our world. We know that You are the Prince of Peace and that You desire for all of Your children to live in harmony and unity.

We pray for the nations of the world and ask that You would bring an end to the conflicts and wars that have caused so much suffering and devastation. We pray that You would work in the hearts of world leaders and bring them to a place of understanding and cooperation.

We pray for those who are suffering in war-torn countries and ask that You would bring them comfort and hope. We pray for their safety and protection and ask that You would lead them to a place of peace and security.

We pray for the families and friends of those who have lost loved ones in conflict and ask that You would bring them healing and comfort.

We pray that Your love would be made known to all people and that it would be the foundation for peace in our world.

We trust in Your goodness and Your promise to bring peace to the earth, and we pray that Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
