Prayer for Peace in the World

Almighty God,

We come before You today to pray for peace in the world. Lord, we know that You are the Prince of Peace and that You desire for all people to live in harmony and unity.

As we look around at the turmoil and conflict that surrounds us, we ask that You would bring Your peace to bear in every situation. May Your peace rule in the hearts of leaders and decision makers, guiding their thoughts and actions towards justice and righteousness.

We pray for peace in every nation and for the end of wars and violence. We pray for reconciliation between enemies and for the healing of the wounds of conflict.

Lord, we know that true and lasting peace can only come through You. We ask that You would work in the hearts of all people, drawing them towards You and Your ways. May Your love and grace be evident in every corner of the world, bringing healing and restoration to all.

We pray all of this in the name of Jesus Christ, who is our peace and our hope. Amen
