The following prayer and other prayers and reflections are in the Peace Discernment Process Facilitators Guide used in churches and other bodies in presbyteries as part of the 6 year discernment process completed in 2016.
“May the deep blessings of earth be with us.
May the fathomless soundings of seas surge in our soul.
May the boundless stretches of the universe echo in our depths to open us to wonder
to strengthen us for love
to humble us with gratitude
that we may find ourselves in one another
that we may lose ourselves in gladness
that we may give ourselves to peace.”
