A Prayer for Peace (Moffit)
Heavenly Father, Precious Savior,
As we come to Thee in prayer.
We are pleading for Thy children
Who have burdens hard to bear.
Ease our suffering, give us solace
Be our ever constant stay.
Help us Father in our anguish
Give us hope to face each day.
In this world so full of conflict
When there’s tension everywhere.
May we learn to be obedient
And remember Thee in prayer.
May we always love our neighbors,
Whether near or far away.
And respect the rights of others
Living gospel truths we pray.
Help us all to live more worthy
Standing fast on gospel sod.
May we be our brother’s keeper
Sons and daughters of our God.
Fill our hearts with sweet forgiveness.
Teach us patience, Lord, and then
Help us live Thy glorious gospel
In the name of Christ, Amen.
