In 1986, Pope John Paul II invited representatives of the world’s 12 major religions to submit and recite a prayer for world peace at Assisi, Italy on October 26, 1986. These prayers are offered on this website, one at a time, as my expression of faith that we all have common ground in hope for a world where our grandchildren and the following generations can live in peace and harmony. I have created what I call a Universal Prayer for Peace by taking a line from each of these 12 prayers and joining them as one. This Universal Prayer for Peace will be posted after the 12 prayers are first presented. Bless us all.
Zoroasterian Prayer for Peace
We pray to God to eradicate all the misery in the world:
that understanding triumph over ignorance,
that generosity triumph over indifference,
that trust triumph over contempt,
and that truth triumph over falsehood.
