Prayers for World Peace

Prayer to Bring an End to Violence and War

John 16:33 – “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”

We come before you today with heavy hearts, as we see the turmoil and conflict that is happening in our world. We pray for peace and unity among all nations and peoples.

We ask that you would give wisdom and guidance to world leaders, and that they would make decisions that promote peace and justice for all. We pray that you would bring an end to violence and war, and that you would protect those who are suffering and in need.

We ask that you would help us to see one another as brothers and sisters, regardless of our differences, and that we would learn to love and respect one another. Help us to put aside our pride and ego, and to seek to understand and serve one another.

We pray that you would bless our world with your presence and peace, and that you would bring healing and restoration to all who are in need. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Prayer to Touch the Hearts of the Leaders:

Luke 2:14 “Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”

Lord, today I come to you pleading for peace on earth for this day. It seems that the nations of the world have turned their backs on You. I know that deep in the heart of every man there is a yearning for peace. That is the peace I’m praying for, that all men would be able to live peaceably in their countries. I know that with God all things are possible and I see those who seem to be full of hate and fear allowing God’s love to penetrate their very being, filling them with love, peace, and God’s guidance.

Your Word tells us that throughout this church age and beyond, and until the Lord Jesus Himself returns to set up His Millennial kingdom, there will be no peace in this world. In the meantime, I pray that we may take up the shield of faith and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God and stand fast in this evil day. With that, I pray the citizens can live peaceably with one another. Touch the hearts of leaders of countries. Remove all differences among countries. May the Prince of Peace be the guide in all treaties and negotiations.

Lord, I eargerly await for the day when Jesus comes to reign on earth as our heavenly King of kings, Lord of lords and Prince of Peace. Then we will truly have peace on earth.
