Almighty and Holy One
We honour all those whose lives were stolen from them
in the vicious and wasteful World Wars
and the many conflicts since.
We pray for peace and trust that
humanity will one day learn the lesson
that war destroys, and solves nothing;
but peace contains the seeds of new life.
War disables while peace enables.
War is death but peace is life.
Teach us to choose LIFE,
for ourselves and all people.
