O God, you are the source of life and peace.
Praised be your name forever.
We know it is you who turn our minds to thoughts of peace. Hear our prayer in this time of crisis.
Your power changes hearts
Muslims, Christians and Jews remember, and profoundly affirm, that they are followers of the one God,
children of Abraham, brothers and sisters;
Enemies begin to speak to one another;
those who were estranged join hands in friendship;
nations seek the way of peace together.
Strengthen our resolve to give witness to these
truths by the way we live.
Give to us:
Understanding that puts an end to strife; Mercy that quenches hatred, and Forgiveness that overcomes vengeance.
Empower all people to live in your law of love. Amen
