For Peace in the Middle-East

(Rev. Said)


God of mercy and compassion,
of grace and reconciliation,
pour your power upon all your children
in the Middle East:
Jews, Muslims and Christians,
Palestinians and Israelis.
Let hatred be turned into love,
fear to trust,
despair to hope,
oppression to freedom,
occupation to liberation,
that violent encounters be replaced
by loving embraces,
and peace and justice be experienced by all.
