Prayers for Peace in this World

Updated on November 23, 2016
Peace Always
Peace Always | Source

Praying for peace on earth and all good will to prevail in this universe, for all war to end and peace to descend from the heavens above.

Each and every day

A prayer my lips will often say

For each and every soldier to return

Safe and sound back to their hometown

Back to their home, their beloved ones

Back to live a life filled with happiness profound

Each and every moment a sound is heard

The firing of bullets, the echoes of words

Words of pain, sadness and grief

Echoing in the battlefields without reprieve

Some soldiers die, some escape

Filled with sadness

To leave their friends without a grave

The soldiers die never to return


Never to return to their loved ones and home


Never to be heard in this world again


Never to go back to their families once again

All this should not happen

I hope and pray

A prayer on my lips day after day

For happiness to rule

And peace always

      Very nice Poetry and Yes we need prayers on our lips very often in this time we live in. Its so sad to see so many young men fall, so many mothers lose their sons, so many wives lose their husbands, etc.

      May God have mercy.

      Keep up the good work
