A Million Minutes for Peace

I hope you'll submit your name to the United Nations
and join millions of others at noon on September 21 praying for peace.

Here's one prayer for peace, written by Ken Hamilton, based on the Prayer of St. Francis:

Dearly Beloved,

Make me an instrument of your peace.

Help me to see by the graceful light of forgiveness,

To hear in the blessed silence of inner peace,

To feel with the loving heart of compassion,

And be free through the power of faith and love,

That I may serve in the glory of your love

Bringing peace, love, and meaning to the world

This day, for this day is thine, forevermore.

—Ken Hamilton
