Faith & Mission
O God of life and love and peace,
We witness the violence and injustice in your Holy Land
And our hearts break.
We pray -
That weapons of war be laid down
That walls of separation and the machinery of occupation be dismantled
That prisoners be released
That demonising of “the other” cease
That political leaders seek the good of all people in Palestine and Israel.
We pray also for ourselves -
That our eyes will be opened to the ways in which our beliefs and actions have contributed to injustice and to violence.
O God, whose heart breaks for the world,
May your justice dwell in the land
May your righteousness abide in fruitful fields
May the effect of righteousness be quietness and trust forever
May the effect of justice be peace - enduring peace.
