A prayer for peace

I learnt this prayer on New Year’s Eve 1999 and it has stuck with me since then. It is a millennial prayer written by Churches Together in England and it speaks so strongly to me of peace, love and forgiveness. There is always a chance for a new start.

Let there be respect for the earth,
Peace for its people,
Love in our lives,
Delight in the good,
Forgiveness for past wrongs,
And from now on a new start.

Please, can we all just get along?
