Prayers by J. Philip Newell

O Christ of the poor and the yearning
Kindle in my heart within
A flame of love for my neighbour,
For my foe, for my friend,
for my kindred all.
From the humblest thing that lives
To the Name that is highest of all
Kindle in my heart within
A flame of love.

Pray for the coming day and for justice and peace

Peace between nations
Peace between neighbours
Peace between lovers
In love of the God of life
Peace between man and woman
Peace between parent and child
Peace between brother and sister
The peace of Christ above all peace.
Bless O Christ my face
Let my face bless everything
Bless of Christ my eyes
Le my eyes bless all they see

Recall the events of the day and pray for justice and peace
