Peace Prayer

Peace Prayer

Dearest Divine Universal Mother and Father: I have suffered very much from ignoring your call for love and peace which has reached humanity through many sensitive souls. I have dwelled upon the world of egotism and the many types of violence produced by this attitude towards women, man, animals and the very mother earth as well. I feel ashamed, how I could even enjoy the sufferings of others in so many ways?. How I also subscribed to the idea that exploiting and giving pain to others is an acceptable way to increase one’s sense of enjoyment and so called property?. Today, I am standing before you with folded hands and repenting emotions. Please, forgive my mistakes and bestow universal love for all upon my soul. Please, make me as well an instrument of you love. Please, give me strength to eat the most nonviolent diet possible to be able to survive as your servant. Please, give me the power to remain clean and clear in my mind to be able to get the right focus on different situations. Please, let me never forget that you are the only final owners of all what exists and that I may not waste your property any more. Please let me live my sexuality without hurting anyone and keeping the respect for the divine reproductive energy, which you have invested in me as well. I am very weak and easily influenced into the wrong activities and directions. I need your special causeless grace and guidance. Let me forgive the mistakes of others and beg to be forgiven as well. Please let universal love for all your creation flow from my heart. Please, let me become an instrument of your desire for world peace. Please, make me strong in front of all temptations. Please, let me see the universal presence of your love in all living beings and respect them as my sister and brother souls, who are existing forever. Please, let me respect my Divine Mother Earth and do not allow her to be poisoned with chemicals, avoiding all products related to such poisoning of people, land and waters, and violence against them prompted by selfish greed. Please let me never forget that you have gifted me with personal responsibility for whatever I do and taught me that violence will only breeds more violence, which will return to the wrongdoer. Forgive me I beg again and again. You are my life and reason to exist. In your many divine forms you are present everywhere. Sometimes I forget that and sometimes this understanding is coming to me. Let this prayer remind me again and renew my commitment to serve your divine will. I (speak out your name) accept my task to work for love and world peace on this planet and in this live to my best capacity. Amen- om- shalom- hayaya- or any invocation of divine presence by your tradition to seal the prayer and the vow taken.
