Holiday

Lord give us Peace on Earth today,

And let Peace begin with me.

A Light in the Darkness ~ for Haiti

My favorite holiday is Christmas—but not only for the gift-giving.

I love it for it promises the coming of the Prince of Peace–Jesus Christ!

A PEACE PRAYER–(Reprint from The ANGLICAL DIGEST–Summer,2012, by Douglas Raymond Rose)

Lord, Give us Peace on Earth today

May I goodwill in my neighbor see;

Grant us the grit to all get along–

And let Peace begin with me.

Grand us more grace in brotherhood

All brothers and sisters are we;

Help us think with Calm and Courage

—And let it begin in me.

Lord, give us Peace on Earth today

Let there much more tolerance be;

Unite our strengths to join our goals

—And let Peace begin with me.
