Prayer to Eirene

Prayer to Eirene
by Gitana

Eirene Goddess of Peace, you are the chief friend and cherisher of the Mousai.
Eirene, the enemy of revenge, lover of families and children, patroness of wealth.
Because of you, peace far outweighs war in benefits to humanity.
Help us to not viciously neglect your blessings, and reject wars, whether man with man or city with city. Let the strong not enslave the weak.



Adapted from Euripides, Suppliant Women 484 ff
