Ask God to shower his graces upon everyone, that peace might reign.

God desires peace on earth and eagerly listens to our prayers.

Below is a short prayer from St. Clement I that asks God to spread his peace and harmony over the entire earth.

Come, Lord, let your face shine upon us so that we may peacefully enjoy all good things.
May your powerful hand be a roof over our heads and may your strength preserve us from all wrongdoing.
Free us, Lord, from those who hate us without cause.
Give peace and harmony to us and to all the inhabitants of the Earth, as you gave them to our fathers who called on you with trust and faith.

You alone can give us these gifts and confer these favors on us.
We put our trust in you through Jesus Christ, our high priest, the guardian of our souls.
Through him be glory and majesty to you now and through all generations until the end of time. Amen.
