We all look on with dread at the horror that is playing out in Israel and how it spills over into the world. Rev Liz has asked for the following prayer to be included in the weekly email:
A Prayer for the Holy Land
By Rev. Rhona Knight
Praying for the Holy Land and its people,
praying for your deep peace,
praying that swords are turned to ploughshares,
we ask that your kingdom will come on earth as in heaven.
May those in power seek your heart.
May those suffering know your presence.
May those mourning be comforted.
May we, who watch at a distance, be open to seeing with your eyes of compassion and understanding and know how to pray and respond justly, mercifully and humbly.
In the name of Jesus we pray.
