Make room for peace

This is a meditation on peace which is designed to enable us to let God’s peace enter into every part of our bodies. A short silence should be held after each ‘make room for peace’.

 

Make room for peace

Make room for peace

May my feet run with the good news of peace for all people

Make room for peace

May my legs be stretched long in the quest for peace

Make room for peace

May peace grow in my gut: anger growing into justice and pain growing into joy

Make room for peace

May I breathe peace through every capillary of my body

Make room for peace

Pump peace through my heart, loving God, cause my heart to beat with the rhythm of peace

Make room for peace

May peace encircle my throat as a necklace of love

Make room for peace

May peace usher forth from my mouth as a never failing spring

Make room for peace

See peace. Hear peace. Smell peace. Taste peace. Feel peace in every part

Make room for peace

May I think peace and know peace and learn to love in every place and throughout every time and space
