Light of the World Reading

LMC Interfaith Ministries believes that it is possible to find peace in our hearts, our lives, our community and our world. We base our faith on the divinely guided principles that are the essence of every religion. While centuries of war point to misguided interpretations, we now enter in to a new age. And with this new age, we make a new world based on the oldest spiritual principles. Here are just a few examples of multi-religious prayers for peace:

Hindu Prayer for Peace

    Oh God, lead us from the
    unreal to the Real.
    Lead us from darkness to light.
    Oh Lord God almighty, may there be peace
    on Earth.

Buddhist Prayer for Peace

    May those frightened cease to be afraid,
    May those who are bound be free.
    May people think of befriending one another.
    And may all sentient beings live in peace.

Christian Prayer for Peace

    Blessed are the PEACEMAKERS,
    for they shall be known as
    the Children of God.
    Love your enemies,
    do good to those who hate you,
    bless those who curse you
    pray for those who abuse you.

Jainist Prayer for Peace

    Peace and Universal Love are the essence
    of the law preached by all
    Enlightened Ones.
    Do not injure any living being.
    This is the eternal and unalterable
    way of spiritual life.

Muslim Prayer for Peace

    Most gracious are those who walk on
    the Earth in humility, and when we
    address them, we say "PEACE."

African Prayer for Peace

    Almighty God, so Great
    You are the one who does
    not hesitate to respond to our call.
    You are the cornerstone of peace.

Jewish Prayer for Peace

    We have not come in to being
    TO hate or to destroy
    WE have come in to being
    To praise, to labor, and to love
    Compassionate God: Fulfill the promise of the scripture
    That says: "I will bring peace on to the land"
    Native American Prayer for Peace
    Oh Great Spirit of our Ancestors,
    I raise my voice to you,
    To your messengers: the four winds, and
    to Mother Earth who provides
    for your children:
    Give us the wisdom to teach our children
    to love, to respect, to be kind, and to live in peace.

LMC Interfaith Ministries is dedicated to the message of peace that was given, by Divine Love, to all cultures, all religions, and all seekers everywhere throughout history.

When someone says that this church must chose the doctrine of one religion, we say that this church chooses the one doctrine shared by all religions. We chose the doctrine of peace.

May peace prevail in every life and on every corner of the earth.

Amen
