We light this candle for peace, Lord.

may its light scatter the darkness;

may its flame be a symbol of hope;

may its burning be a sign of faith

joining with many other lights for peace.

We light this candle for peace.

May our lives be an expression of peacemaking;

may we seek to be lights in a dark world,

pointing to you, Jesus, the Prince of Peace,

and following you in the way of peace.

Let the candle burn, as a sign of peace,

offered to you.

John Johansen-Berg, from SPCK Book of Christian Prayer
