Loving God, there is no place in your world for violence. 
Violent attitudes and approaches are not acceptable
No place for violence. 
Violent words and opinions are not acceptable. 
No place for violence. 
Physical actions that intimidate and harm are not acceptable. 
No place for violence. 
Give us the strength 
to put thoughts of retaliation behind us, the strength to turn away rather than confront. 
Give us the wisdom to seek the way of peaceful dialogue when possible to resolve conflict. 
In the name of Jesus, the peace bringer we pray, Amen.
