Gracious God, in you justice and peace embrace. With hope we pray: God, in your love, give us peace.

Forgive our sin, and shine your light through our weakness.

God, in your love, give us peace.

Imbue peacemakers, diplomats, and national leaders with courage and perseverance in efforts to end war.

God, in your love, give us peace.

Raise to new life those who have died with their hope fixed on you.

God, in your love, give us peace.

Our Father . . .

May God’s glory rise upon us and strengthen our hope for eternal life, in Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen
