earth day peace prayer

In what small places upon the earth might we find peace?

Humans find a sense of peace in nature.

Animals have been known to find peace with humans.

A baby knows peace when its basic needs are met.

Love brings peace to the human heart.

Peace is found in an act of kindness.

We find peace when we are honest.

Peace comes when we have fulfilled our obligations.

Peace can be found in the arms of one's God.

Our earth knows peace in the same ways.

She is our mother, the fertile soil where peace grows.

Let us pray together, that all will come to know,

the earth as their shared home, the place where peace may grow.
