Illuminate the World: a Peace Prayer

God, You scattered the divine sparks 
so that we may find them in each other,
but sometimes, we forget to look. 

We are Your glittering fragments,
Your shards, Your stars. 
We stand here before You, 
ready to gather the sparks, 
ready to illuminate the world
like One holy campfire. 

We may be scattered, shattered
but we will glow together, grow together,
we will see each other’s shine

and maybe then, dear God,
we will finally be ready
for peace. 

Barukh Atah Adonai, mevarech et kol ha’olam b’shalom 
Blessed are You, God, who blesses the world with peace.
