A Prayer for the Peace of Haiti
Priyè mou-n peyi d’Ayiti
LORD, OUR GOD, WE DECIDE TODAY TO FULLY OBEY YOU and carefully follow all the commands you give us.
We renounce and denounce the making of sacrifices and services to other gods, we renounce and denounce the practices of divination or sorcery, we renounce and denounce the practices of interpreting omens, we renounce and denounce the practices of engaging in witchcraft, we renounce and denounce the practices of casting spells, we renounce and denounce the practices of medium or spiritist, we renounce and denounce the practices of consulting the dead because, LORD, you detest anyone who does these things.
Yes, LORD, because we decide to fully obey you and carefully follow all the commands you, our God, give us, here are the blessings we are asking you to pour on us according to your promise:
LORD, bless us everywhere we are. Bless our children. Bless the crops of our land and the young of our livestock , the calves of our herds and the lambs of our flocks. Bless all our activities. Bless us in every thing that we do. Bless us when we come in and bless us when we go out.
LORD, grant that all enemies who rise up against us will be defeated before us. Bless us at all times. Bless our barns; bless everything we put our hand to. Bless us right here, in the region where you, our God, have placed us.
LORD, our God, because we decide to keep your commands and walk in obedience to you, cause our region to become a holy place , living a holy life for you, LORD, our God.
LORD, our God, cause all the peoples on earth to see that you have called our region to bear your name. Cause them to respect us. LORD, grant us abundant prosperity, bless the fruit of our womb , the young of our livestock and the crops of our ground, right here in the region where you, LORD, our God, have placed us.
LORD, open the heavens, the storehouse of your bounty, to send rain on our region in season and to bless all the work of our hands. Cause us to always be able to lend to others. Cause that we never have to borrow from anyone. Make us the head and never the tail. Cause us to always be at the top and never at the bottom because,
LORD, we pay attention to your commands and we decide this day to carefully follow them.
LORD, because we decide to not turn aside, to the right or to the left, from any of the commands you give us, to not follow other gods and serve them, we ask you to remove the following curses from us: The curses that are on us everywhere we are; the curses that are on our children , on our crops, on the calves of our herds and the lambs of our flocks.
Please, LORD, remove all those curses that are upon us in everything we put our hand to, when we come in and when we go out.
In the name of Jesus Christ, your son
