Prayers for Justice, Peace, Integrity of Creation and Encounter and Dialogue


Prayer for Justice, Peace and Integrity of CreationIn prayer, we seek Divine intervention: “If the Lord does not build the house, in vain do its builders labour; if the Lord does not watch over the city, in vain does the watchman keep vigil.” (Ps. 126 [127]: 1)
“While some are enrolled under the flag of mercy and fraternal solidarity, taking the arms and ready to go for the battle, we who are staying behind must call on the name of the Lord (cf. Ps 20: 7), and go up to the mountain to raise up our hands together towards heaven.” (Card. Lavigerie)
Let our prayer for JPIC-ED be a continuous reminder of the urgency of our commitment as individuals, communities, and of the Lavigerie Family wherever we are.

  1. Nature and God’s Creation
Loving Father and Creator of all we come to you today deeply grateful for your creation. As we look around us, we are amazed at the greatness and majesty of all that you have made. Nature around us speaks of your greatness – the vast expanse of the sky, the mountains, trees, lakes and streams speak of your great design. You have given us such beauty in the colours of the rainbow, the beauty of flowers and fields. Words cannot adequately express the magnificence of all you have created. We join in praise with the writer of the psalms when he says, “O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth.” May we show our love and reverence to you, our Lord, by caring for all that you have created. We humbly give you praise and thanks. Amen
