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.
