Prayer for Ending the Conflict Between South and North Korea

Most merciful Lord, we confess to You, in a spirit of repentance and contrition, that even though 70 years have passed since the beginning of the catastrophic for our Country civil war, we are still experiencing the drama of the division between North and South Korea, something which is against Your Holy Will.

Lord, we ask you to forgive us and listen to the voices of your sinful servants praying for the end of the war on the Korean peninsula, so that our hearts and our countries may be once again united.

Lord, help us to fully acknowledge that only peace and harmony can safeguard the progress of a nation. Hostility is contrary to the very nature of the human being and Your Holy Will.

Lord, illumine the minds and hearts of the powerful of this world, so that they may assist in bringing an end to this conflict and considering the interests of the Korean Nation above all other geopolitical interests.

Lord, we beseech you, the Lord of Peace, grant us your wisdom and light so that we may all work together for peace, goodwill and harmony among us.

Lord, make us worthy of handing over to the next generations a united Korean Peninsula, so that we may all live without the fear and agony of war, but with love, peace and security.

Because, Lord, you are our help and our power, and to you we ascribe glory, together with the Father and the Holy Spirit, now and ever and to the ages of ages. Amen.
