Give Peace to the People

"God, give peace to the people.
God, please give peace to the whole world.
God, please fill the hearts of people with joy and peace."

Keith, 8-years-old, wrote this prayer to be part of the children's Epiphany liturgy. It was written in the aftermath of 9/11/01, during the war on Afghanistan.
