Prayer and Food for Thought

A prayer from Tanzania

Oh Lord Jesus Christ, who said to your apostles

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you."

Give us courage to challenge the perpetrators of violence

and to change their behaviour. Help us to devote our whole life,

thought and energy to the task of making peace.

 

We pray for a new Africa,

where fear, violent thoughts or action shall no longer exist,

and where selfishness will not lead people to commit injustice to others.

 

As for the peoples of every African tongue and race,

may your kindom come;

your kingdom of justice, peace and love.

 

May peace prevail in Africa.

May peace prevail on earth.

Amen.
