Episcopal Peace Fellowship-Maine Chapter Prayer

Almighty God, You have bidden us to carry in your Name the sword of the Spirit;

you have made us messengers of peace in a world of strife,

and messengers of strife where false peace prevails;

Make strong our hand, make clear our voice,

give us humility with firmness, and insight with passion;

that we may fight not to conquer but to redeem,

following the example of your blessed Son, the Savior of the world. Amen.

by The Rev. Richard Bamforth
