A Special Prayer: Dear God, We Pray for the Children Living in War Zones

Prayer to the Virgin Mary, Queen of Peace

O Mary, Queen of Peace,

we come to you today to ask for your intercession.

We live in a world that is torn apart by war and violence.

We see hatred and division on all sides.

We are afraid for our future and the future of our children.

But we know that you are the Queen of Peace.

We know that you are our mother and that you love us.

We pray to you today for peace in the world.

We pray for peace in our hearts and in our families.

We pray for peace in all nations.

We ask you to intercede for us with your Son, Jesus Christ.

We ask him to heal the wounds of our world and to bring us true and lasting peace.

O Mary, Queen of Peace, pray for us.


You can pray this prayer in private or with others. You can pray it once or many times. The important thing is to pray with faith and hope. Trust that Mary, Queen of Peace, is listening to your prayer and that she will intercede for you with her Son.

In Jesus’ name, amen.
