He who did not retain his very own Son, yet surrendered him for us all, will he not with him additionally give us everything else? Who will bring any charge against God’s choose? It is God who legitimizes. Who is to denounce? It is Christ Jesus, who passed on, truly, who was raised, who is at the correct hand of God, who without a doubt intervenes for us.

For ourselves
O God our Father, help us to realise that all striving after justice must begin with ourselves, and not with others. Make us to be those who work for peace and seek always to express your love in the world. Help us to encourage the spirit of reconciliation, by being those who forgive, rather than those who try to establish their rights. We ask this in the name of the One who forgave those who persecuted him, even Jesus Christ

Let us pray for all who suffer as a result of conflict, and ask that God may give us peace: for the service men and women who have died in the violence of war, each one remembered by and known to God;
May God give peace God give peace
For those who love them in death as in life, offering the distress of our grief and the sadness of our loss;
May God give peace God give peace
For all members of the armed forces who are in danger this day, remembering family, friends and all who pray for their safe return;
May God give peace God give peace
For civilian women, children and men whose lives are disfigured by war or terror, calling to mind in penitence the anger and hatreds of humanity;
May God give peace God give peace
For peace-makers and peace-keepers, who seek to keep this world secure and free;
May God give peace God give peace
For all who bear the burden and privilege of leadership, political, military and religious; asking for gifts of wisdom and resolve in the search for reconciliation and peace.
May God give peace God give peace
