Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.

We pray to You, Lord, God of life and God of those who hope! Listen to our prayer for the whole world: for peace among all peoples, for prosperity in all lands. We pray to You that evil may be overcome and that all wars may end.

We pray to You especially for the members of our Lasallian Family, who suffer from war, injustice, and intolerance, and for the children and young people who are poor and neglected.

We pray too, God, for peace in our lives; in our towns, in our schools, in our families and in our own hearts. We pray for a peace that the world cannot give us. We pray for a peace that will make us whole and transform us into ambassadors of justice for Your sake.

Lord, give us Your peace! Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us. Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
