CONTRIBUTION TO PEACE

 

  • God of my Heart, God of my Understanding,
  • I contribute to Peace when I strive to express the best of myself in my contacts with others.
  • I contribute to Peace when I use my intelligence and my abilities to serve the Good.
  • I contribute to Peace when I feel compassion toward all those who suffer.
  • I contribute to Peace when I look upon all men as my brethren, regardless of race, culture, or religion.
  • I contribute to Peace when I rejoice over the happiness of others and pray for their well being.
  • I contribute to Peace when I listen with tolerance to opinions that differ from mine or even oppose them.
  • I contribute to Peace when I respect Nature and preserve it for generations to come.
  • I contribute to peace when I do not seek to impose my conception of God upon others.
  • I contribute to Peace when I make Peace the foundation of my ideals and philosophy.

 

Serge Toussaint presented this prayer, “Contribution to peace”, at an UNESCO (United Nations Educational and Cultural Organization) meeting in Paris after being inspired by Ralph M. Lewis’ prayer entitled “Creed of Peace”.
