A Prayer for Israel & Gaza

Father of Creation,

God of Justice,

The world weeps as violence and war erupt in Israel and Gaza,

Our hearts are heavy,

Our souls are sad,

Lord, have mercy.



We pray against the masters and machinations of war,

We don't have the answers,

But we pray for peace.


For women weeping,

Lord, have mercy.


For children hurting,

Christ, have mercy.


For those who have lost loved ones,

Lord, have mercy.


For those whose homes have been destroyed,

Christ, have mercy.


Your Son, our Saviour, said,

"Blessed are the peacemakers,"

And commanded his followers to lay down the sword.


We pray for peacemakers,

For courage and wisdom.


We pray for those offering aid,

For courage and strength.


This is not the way it was meant to be.

Let your kingdom come.


Blessed are the peacemakers,

Let your will be done.


God, our refuge and strength,

Bring forth the day when wars shall cease,

And poverty and pain will end.

That Earth may know the peace of heaven,

Through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Amen.
