World Peace Prayer

Lead me from death to life,
From falsehood to truth
Lead me from despair to hope,
From fear to trust
Lead me from hate to love,
From war to peace
Let peace fill our heart, our world, our universe. 
Let Peace Prayer Encircle our World

"Benedictines for Peace invite you to join people around the world in praying and reflecting on the World Peace Prayer. Printed in many different languages, the prayer is not linked to any particular creed. It is based on the power of prayer to achieve the profound change of heart needed in these perilous times to ensure survival of the planet and conversion of human values.

It is our hope that world leaders will have the wisdom and courage to implement a comprehensive program to end war and promote world disarmament. Please join in this prayer daily, thereby creating a continuous chain of positive energy and prayer throughout the earth."
