Ideas and Inspirations for the International Day of Peace - Post 2

24 July 2018, 3:02 PM

Join people of all faiths around the world who are praying this Universal Prayer for Peace each day. Say this prayer often and share at IDP gatherings.

Universal Prayer for Peace

Lead me from death to life,

from falsehood to truth.

Lead me from despair to hope,

from fear to trust,

Lead me from hate to love,

from war to peace.

Let peace fill our heart, our world, our universe.

Peace, peace, peace.


Adapted from the Upanishads by Satish Kumar.

Body movements to accompany Universal Prayer for Peace offered by St. Antony’s Priory.
