About this article

This prayer for peace is by a student from Saint Thomas More Academy in Magnolia, DE.

Adonai Shalom
“Lord of Peace”

Adonai Shalom
Lord, let there be peace in my heart,
so that it may be open to feel love,
kindness, and goodness.

Adonai Shalom
Lord, let there be peace in my life,
so that I can listen to and learn from others
who seem so different from me.

Adonai Shalom
Lord, may I have the opportunity to create
a peaceful environment with
lifestyles that include all my neighbors.

Adonai Shalom
Lord, please grant me peace,
that I may find contentment in your world,
so that “nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war any more” (Isaiah 2:4).
