Resurrection Resource of the Month

January 2019

                           Prayer for Peace in the Middle East

God of peace, bearer of hope,

We seek your help

for the people of the Middle East.

Quiet the clamor of war

and guide us towards peace.

Where there is hatred and division,

sow seeds of calm and openness.

Where there is destruction,

Help us to rebuild.

Where children are crying,

bring an end to tears.

Shelter your people and protect them.

Guide them and keep them from harm.

Show us how to break down the barriers of history and fear

And bring whispers of hope.

In Jesus name, Amen
