The following is my version of a “Prayer for Peace,” originally written by St. John Paul II, edited to be Pagan friendly.
To the Gods of nature and humankind, of truth and beauty, I call:
Hear my voice, for it is the voice of the victims of all wars and
violence among individuals and nations.
Hear my voice, for it is the voice of all children who suffer and
will suffer when people put their faith in weapons and war.
Hear my voice, when I beg You to instill into the hearts of all
human beings the wisdom of peace, the strength of justice,
and the joy of worship.
Hear my voice, for I speak for all who are
ready to walk the road of peace.
Hear my voice and grant insight and strength so that we may
always respond to hatred with love, to injustice with total
dedication to justice, to need with the sharing of self, to war
Oh Gods, hear my voice and grant unto the world Your
We all need a little more peace in the world. Let’s use this prayer so that we can ask the Gods for Their help. <3
