11 Come, O children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
12 Which of you desires life,
and covets many days to enjoy good?
13 Keep your tongue from evil,
and your lips from speaking deceit.
14 Depart from evil, and do good;
seek peace, and pursue it.
God of peace,
Help us to be your peacemakers. Make us channels of your peace. Transform our desires so that we no longer seek to be understood, but to understand. Amen.
This week’s video echoes a prayer from Sunday’s worship service. Often attributed to St. Francis, the prayer invites us into God’s work of peacemaking.
