September 21 has been declared International Peace Day by the United Nations. Today we join with religious people all around the world in praying for peace. The World Council of Churches has also suggested that, today, we pray for ceasefires: in our homes, our communities, our nation, and our world.
Below is a prayer from our hymnal. Will you take a minute and pray with us? You can also join the world community and add your prayers for peace to facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/events/104942829652406/

World Peace Prayer
Lead us from death to life, from falsehood to truth, from despair to hope, from fear to trust, lead us from hatred to love, from war to peace; peace fill our hearts, let peace fill our world, let peace fill our universe.
