A Prayer for the Holy Land

God of judgement and mercy, compassion and steadfast love,
look tenderly on your children at war in your holy land.
Still the souls bent of vengeance and destruction.
Change the hearts plotting death and devastation.
Raise up leaders within the warring parties and in the international community
who can turn violence into reasoned argument,
and listen to the pain until a way forward emerges.
Make us see what we have in common so much more than what divides us.
And let all who trace their past back to Abraham
find their common future in you.
Through Christ your Son our crucified companion forever. Amen.
