A Prayer for Peace
Hazrat Inayat Khan
Send Thy peace, O Lord, which is perfect & everlasting,
   that our souls may radiate peace.
Send Thy peace, O Lord,
   that we may think, act, & speak harmoniously.
Send Thy peace, O Lord,
   that we may be contented & thankful for Thy bountiful gifts.
Send Thy peace, O Lord,
   that amidst our worldly strife we may enjoy Thy bliss.
Send Thy peace, O Lord,
that we may endure all,
   tolerate all in the thought of Thy grace & mercy.
Send Thy peace, O Lord, that our lives may become
   a divine vision, & in Thy light all darkness may vanish.
Send Thy peace, O Lord, our Father & Mother,
   that we Thy children on earth may all unite in one family.
