Peace prayers from Christian Aid and Pax Christi

 Pax Christi prayer O God, you are the source of life and peace. Praised be your name forever. We know it is you who turn our minds to thoughts of peace. Hear our prayer in this time of crisis. Your power changes hearts. Muslims, Christians and Jews remember, and profoundly affirm, that they are followers of the one God, children of Abraham, brothers and sisters; enemies begin to speak to one another; those who were estranged join hands in friendship; nations seek the way of peace together. Strengthen our resolve to give witness to these truths by the way we live. Give to us: Understanding that puts an end to strife; Mercy that quenches hatred, and Forgiveness that overcomes vengeance. Empower all people to live in your law of love Amen Prayer from Christian Aid Pray not for Arab Of Jew For Palestinian Or Israeli But pray rather For ourselves That we might not Divide them in our Prayers but keep Them both together In our hearts. (Based on a prayer of a Palestinian Christian)
