Be A Peaceful Presence!

God of all,
may my prayer be pleasing to you
as I remember your presence
in the lives of my sisters and brothers
here and everywhere in the world.
May I be a peaceful presence!

Awaken in me
an ever-increasing awareness
of the wonder of the gift of life.
May I be a peaceful presence!

Teach me the value of each person.
May I be a peaceful presence!

Keep me ever mindful
that every person is precious.
May I be a peaceful presence!

Help me to respect and reverence all life.
May I be a peaceful presence today!
May I be a peaceful presence tomorrow!
May I be a peaceful presence everyday!
