A Call For Daily Prayers For Peace

Gracious God, unite all who love you in daily prayers for wisdom and restraint on the part of the leaders of Israel, the Palestinian National Authority, and Hamas: Benjamin, Mahmoud, and Ismail. Flood their forecourts with diplomats and their ears with the wails of the innocent victims of useless violence. If they all have a seat at the table, if they’re weary enough of grievance and bloodshed, if they agree that all in the region deserve freedom, security, and the dignity of national self-determination, even masters of war can be architects of your peace. In the name of the Prince of Peace. Amen.

Bishop John H. Taylor, Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles
