Prayer For Peace And Unity

O God we are one with you. ... 

Help us to realize that there can be no understanding where there is mutual rejection.

O God, in accepting one another wholeheartedly, fully, completely, we accept you, and we thank you, and we adore you; and we love you with our whole being, because our being is in your being, our spirit is rooted in your spirit.

Fill us then with love, and let us be bound together with love as we go our diverse ways, united in this one spirit which makes you present to the world, and which makes you witness to the ultimate reality that is love. 
Love has overcome.

Love is victorious.


By Thomas Merton
