One World Week October 23rd/30th “God speaks in the silence of the heart. Listening is the beginning of prayer.” (St Teresa of Calcutta)

We are encouraged this week to think about prayer in our lives and how through prayer we can do something to change the world we live in. To pray for justice and peace, as we are asked to next week, is to let the world know that we care about it and recognise that without it the lives of many in the world are disrupted and damaged through conflict and war.

Join people of all faiths around the world who are

saying this prayer at noon each day:

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.
