Grant us peace in our time

O Thou protector of the universe, 
ruler of its destiny, abode of happiness and peace, 
ocean of mercy, friend of the poor, 
destroyer of the pangs of want, 
everlasting, whole, 
unending, beginningless, 
perfect, ancient of days, 
refuge of thy people, 
beloved of the heart, 
and guardian and mainstay of life, 
grant us peace in our time.  Amen.

(From Book of Prayers, by M. K. Gandhi, 1999, Berkeley Hills Books)
