PRAYER FOR PEACE IN THE KOREAN PENINSULA (St. Nicholas Cathedral, Seoul, 6.12.2018)
|Lord, Who are the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9: 6), we ask You to send us the “peace from above” so that we may have inner peace—the precondition for peace with God, our fellow human beings, and all of creation.|
Lord, we ask you especially to fill the hearts of earthly rulers with Your Holy Peace, "which surpasses all understanding." (Phil. 4: 7)
Lord, grant to us also the precious gift of political peace, so that we may see an end to the cold war on the Korean peninsula, which has been a cause of great suffering for us for the last 65 years. May peace and reconciliation with our brothers and sisters in North Korea be restored, and may families long-separated be reunited.
O Lord, "hear our prayer; come and dwell in us, cleanse us of all stain, and save our souls, O Good One." Amen.
