Prayers for Gaza

CWS Prayer for Gaza

Loving God

Who cares for each one of us like a mother cares for her children

We pray for the people of Gaza: rich and poor, young and old, armed and peace-seeking

We pray for your protection in this time of desperation.

Lord have mercy in this time of great need.

We pray for those who have the power to bring hope

For those who operate the weapons that cause so much destruction, those who inflame the conflict with words and those who can broker the peace that is so urgent.

Lord have mercy in this time of great need.

We pray for the Department of Service to Palestinian Refugees as they struggle to offer the means of life to so many people in need while dealing with their own trauma and suffering.

We pray for the members of ACT International who are trying to deliver food and medical assistance in the most dangerous circumstances.

Lord have mercy in this time of great need.

Help us not to turn away.

In our words and our actions help us all to work for an end to the violence that holds all sides captive.

Let us forge new ways of peace that help to spread justice in this world that you have created.

In the name of Jesus,

the Prince of Peace, we pray.

Amen
