A Peace Prayer of Wonder and Surprise

Dear Lord, grant me the grace of wonder. Surprise me, amaze me, awe me in every crevice of your universe. Each day enrapture me with your marvelous things without number. I do not ask to see the reason for it all: I ask only to share the wonder of it all.

Grant me peace. Your most precious gift, and give me the will to proclaim its message to all the people of the Earth.
Although differences in thought and belief divide us, let love of truth and the pursuit of holiness, unite me with all life.

Strengthen the bonds of friendship among the inhabitants of all lands, and may the love of Your name hallow every home and every heart. May the one who makes peace in the heavens make peace for all.

Tradition: Judaism

Recommendation from The Radical Virgo: Change terms as needed to fit your own belief system. There are so many names for Higher Power: God, Goddess, All That Is, Lord/Lady, Spirit and the Universe to name a few.
