St. Ethelburga's "A Prayer for an End to Violence"
God of life,
Every act of violence in our world,
between myself and another,
destroys a part of your creation.
Stir in my heart
a renewed sense of reverence
for all life.
Give me the vision to recognise your spirit
in every human being,
however they behave towards me.
Make possible the impossible
by cultivating in me
the fertile seed of healing love.
Help me play my part in breaking
the cycle of violence
by realising that peace begins in me.
