Jewish, Christian and Muslim Prayers for Peace

Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him) is considered as the patriarch of Jews, Christians and Muslims. Therefore, the people who believe in these three monotheistic faiths (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) share many fundamental beliefs and concepts. On this page, we have presented prayers for peace from the Jewish, Christian and Muslim traditions. We hope that these will generate inner peace within yourself.

Jewish Prayer
(Contributed by Professor David Blades, University of Alberta)
The following is a Prayer for Peace that is traditionally included in the Shabbat (Saturday) service. It is chanted together and a lovely prayer, drawn as most prayers in Judaism, from Biblical sources. May these words come true:

May we see the day when war and bloodshed cease
when a great peace will embrace the whole world

Then nation shall not threaten nation
and humankind will not again know war.

For all who live on earth shall realize
we have not come into being to hate or destroy

We have come into being
to praise, to labour and to love.

Compassionate God, bless all the leaders of all nations
with the power of compassion.

Fulfill the promise conveyed in Scripture:

"I will bring peace to the land,
and you shall lie down and no one shall terrify you.
I will rid the land of vicious beasts
and it shall not be ravaged by war."

Let love and justice flow like a mighty stream.

Let peace fill the earth as the waters fill the sea.

And let us say: Amen

Christian Prayer
(Contributed by Professor Jim Robertson, University of Alberta)
The following verse from the Holy Bible (Revised Standard Version, published in 1953 by Thomas Nelson & Sons, Toronto) is considered as a guiding principle for Christians (Isaiah I 2:4).

He shall judge between nations,
and shall decide for many peoples;

and they shall beat their swords into plowshares
and their spears into pruning hooks;

nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war any more.

Muslim Prayers

Rabbanaa atinaa fid-dunyaa hasanatanw-wa fil-aakhirati hasanatanw-wa qinaa 'azaaban-naar (Holy Qu'ran 002:201) bi Rahmatika ya Ar-hamr-Rahimeen1
Our Lord! Give us good in this world and good in the Hereafter, and defend us from the torment of the (hell) Fire with Thy kindness, O Benevolent of the benevolents.
Allahumma ya mowlana antas-salaam, wa minkas-salaam, wa ilaika yarjaus-salaam, haiyyina rabbana bis-salaam, wa adkhilna daras-salaam, tabarakta rabbana wa-ta'laita, ya zal jalali wal ikram2
O God! O our Master! You are eternal life and everlasting peace by Your essence and attributes. The everlasting peace is from You and it returns to You. O our Sustainer! Grant us the life of true peace and usher us into the abode of peace. O Glorious and Bounteous One! You are blessed and sublime.

We think that human beings have to first make peace with God within themselves and then extend this everlasting peace to their fellow human beings. Please click here to read and hear peace prayers from the Divine Attributes of God.
