Advent Peace Psalm

Peace is within our grasp

O Prince of Peace, whose advent we seek in our lives, come to us this day and show us how to beat our swords into plowshares, tools of life instead of instruments of fear.

May your love strip us naked of all weapons and strategies of conquest, which are not the tools of lovers, wise ones and God’s children.  Let us not lust for power, but rather strive for the insight to be guided on the Way of Peace.

Let us not yearn for a victory that requires a sister’s sorrow or a brother’s shamefaced defeat.  With tears, black suites and dresses and tolling funeral bells, let us attend life’s victory parties that are won at such a cost.

Let us be Advent adventurers and peacemakers, hammering swords into shovels, filling holes and leveling peaks.  Let us be disarmed and vulnerable, for only through such open hands and hearts can Emmanuel come.

“Prayers for a Planetary Pilgrim,” Edward Hayes
