A Christian Prayer for Peace
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be known as the Children of God.
But I say to you that hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you.
To those who strike you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from those who take away your cloak, do not withhold your coat as well.
Give to everyone who begs from you and of those who take away your goods, do not ask them again.
And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.
Note: This is one of the
twelve prayers for peace prayed in Assisi, Italy
Prayed on the United Nations Day of Prayer for World Peace, 1986
