Reconciliation Prayer for the 100 Days of Peace

O God of forgiveness, you gave us your Son to reconcile us to you, so that we may know your peace.

In this sacred icon, we recall men and women down the ages whose stories have witnessed to your healing mercy.

We ask you to make London 2012 a special time of unity between peoples.

May all who visit find a welcome in our cities. Bless all those involved in the Games, so that together we may build a legacy of peace for the future.
