Prayers for Peace

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 for them again.

And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.

Jewish Prayer for Peace

Come let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, that we may walk the paths of the Most High.

And we shall beat our swords into ploughshares, and our spears into pruning hooks.

Nation shall not lift up sword against nation – neither shall they learn war any more.

And none shall be afraid, for the mouth of the Lord of Hosts has spoken.

Muslim Prayer for Peace

In the name of Allah, the beneficent, the merciful. Praise be to the Lord of the Universe who has created us and made us into tribes and nations, that we may know each other, not that we may despise each other.

If the enemy incline towards peace, do thou also incline towards peace, and trust in God, for the Lord is the one that heareth and knoweth all things.

And the servants of God, Most Gracious are those who walk on the Earth in humility, and when we address them, we say “PEACE.”
