Jain Prayer for peace

Peace and Universal Love is the essence of the Gospel preached by all Enlightened Ones.

The Lord has preached that equanimity is the dharma

Forgive do I creatures all, and let all creatures forgive me.

Unto all have I amity, and unto none enmity.

Know that violence is the root cause of all miseries in the world.

Violence, in fact, is the knot of bondage.

"Do not injure any living being."

This is the eternal, perrenial, and unalterable way of spiritual life.

A weapon, howsoever powerful it may be, can always be superseded by a superior one; but no weapon can, however.

 

 

 

Hindu Prayer for Peace

 

Oh God, lead us from the unreal to the Real.

Oh God, lead us from darkness to light.

Oh God, lead us from death to immortality.

Shanti, Shanti, Shanti unto all.

 

Oh Lord God almighty, may there be peace in celestial regions.

May there be peace on Earth.

May the waters be appeasing.

May herbs be wholesome, and may trees and plants bring peace to all.

May all beneficient beings bring peace to us.

May thy Vedic Law propagate peace all through the world.

May all things be a source of peace to us.

And may thy peace itself, bestow peace on all and may that peace come to me also.

 

The Prayer of Saint Francis

 

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.

Where there is hatred ... let me sow love

Where there is injury ... pardon

Where there is doubt ... faith

Where there is despair ... hope

Where there is darkness ... light

Where there is sadness ... joy

 

Divine Master,

grant that I may not so much seek

To be consoled ... as to console

To be understood ... as to understand,

To be loved ... as to love

For it is in giving ... that we receive,

It is in pardoning ... that we are pardoned,

It is in dying ... that we are born to eternal life

Baha'i Prayer for Peace

 

Be generous in prosperity, and thankful in adversity.

Be fair in judgement, and guarded in thy speech,

Be a lamp unto those who walk in darkness, and a home to the stranger.

Be eyes to the blind, and a guiding light unto the feet of the erring

Be a breath of life to the body of humankind, a dew to the soil of the human heart, and a fruit upon the tree of humility.

Buddhist Prayer for Peace

 

May all beings everywhere plagued with sufferings of body and mind quickly be freed from their illnesses.

May those frightened cease to be afraid, and may those bound be free.

May the powerless find power, and may people think of befriending one another.

May those who find themselves in trackless, fearful wilderness--- the children, the age, the unprotected-- be guarded by beneficial celestials, and may they swiftly attain Buddhahood.

Muslim Prayer for Peace

 

In the name of Allah, the beneficent, the merciful.

Praise be to the Lord of the Universe who has created us and made us into tribes and nations

That we may know each other, not that we may despise each other.

If the enemy incline towards peace, do thou also incline towards peace, and

trust God, for the Lord is the one that heareth and knoweth all things.

And the servants of God,

Most gracious are those who walk on the Earth in humility, and when we address them, we say "PEACE."

Native American Prayer for Peace

 

Almighty God, the Great Thumb we cannot evade to tie any knot;

the Roaring Thunder that splits mighty trees:

the all-seeing Lord up on high who sees even the footprints of an antelope on

a rock mass here on Earth.

You are the one who does not hesitate to respond to our call.

You are the cornerstone of peace.

Another Native American Prayer for Peace

 

Oh Great Spirit of our Ancestors, I raise my pipe to you.

To your messengers the four winds, and to Mother Earth who provides for your children.

Let us learn to share all good things that

you provide for us on this Earth.

Shinto Prayer for Peace

 

Although the people living across the ocean surrounding us,

I believe are all our brothers and sisters,

Why do winds and waves rise in the oceans surrounding us?

I only earnestly wish that the wind will soon puff away all the clouds

which are hanging over the tops of mountains.
