Hiroshima and Nagasaki Days

As we pass the anniversaries of the dropping of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki (6 and 9 August 1945), let us pray the International Prayer for Peace around the world. 

Lead me from death to life, from falsehood to truth.
Lead me from despair to hope, from fear to trust.
Lead me from hate to love, from war to peace.
Let peace fill our heart, our world, our universe.

Remember all who lived through those times and faced impossible decisions, those who survived and those who bear the scars.

Pray for all who work for peace and reconciliation in very different ways.
