We offer this prayer:
Heavenly Father we reach out to you with a plea for The Peace of Jerusalem, the center of the world, the center of our faith; may it be the center of love and peace, the gathering place of the nations, as we relate to you and to each other. We pray for all places where terrorism, violence, warfare and acts of inhumanity are taking place. Guard, protect, direct and gather us into one great family; that we may worship you in peace and live together in Holy love, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
