First, two prayers from Prophet Muhammad (PBUH):
“O Allâh, place light in my heart, light in my tongue, light in my hearing, light in my sight, light behind me, light in front of me, light on my right, light on my left, light above me and light below me; place light in my sinew, in my flesh, in my blood, in my hair and in my skin; place light in my soul and make light abundant for me; make me light and grant me light.”
“O Allah, O our Lord, You are peace,
and from You is peace,
and to You returns the peace,
O our Lord, give us life of peace,
and usher us in the abode of peace.
Blessed are You, our Lord, the Most High,
O the Lord of Majesty and Reverence.”
Second, from me:
May we find peace.
May we work towards peace.
May we build peace.
May the oppressor be challenged.
May the oppressed find justice.
May truth prevail.
May love be manifest.
