Tiny Prayer for Peace

I went to a workshop through my seminary on writing tiny prayers given by Micah Bucey, pastor of Judson Church (judson.org). Here's a prayer I wrote during the workshop. It was written on the day Russia invaded Ukraine:

As the world appears to embrace violence as the solution,

hate as a way of being,

power as the ultimate accomplishment;

may I embrace peace as the solution,

love as a way of being,

cooperation as the ultimate accomplishment.

May I join others in the prayer for peace;

May I believe wholeheartedly in the poser of praying for peace;

May the people of this heartbroken world join hands and hearts in peace.

For, if we all spoke up for peace and love,

it would manifest.
