A Prayer for Peace in the Heart of London

News St Martin – Talking Points

God of justice and mercy
your Son Jesus placed his body in the way of cruel and violent attack.
By your Holy Spirit come close to the hearts of those who work in Parliament,
to the souls of all who work to protect the public,
and to the fears of any who visit central London to relax, discover and enjoy.
Heal wounds, soften painful memories, calm anxieties.
Turn the minds of those who make terror their instrument,
that they may see the harm they do,
and come to share the horror the rest of the world feels.
Transform their hatred into dialogue, understanding, and reasoned disagreement.
Make this city a place where diversity is cherished and public space is secure,
that we may walk together in the ways of peace,
in the footsteps of your Son, our saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.
