Action Prayer 26 November 2023 Judy Masters
Our readings this weekend remind us of God's sovereignty and the virtues we need to live by.
"I tell you solemnly, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me." Jesus is clear that how we treat others-good, bad, or indifferent-we are doing it to Him. We can't be dismissive of others because they are the opposition, the enemy, the outsider etc. They need to be treated with dignity, care and respect. Our Action Prayer this week may be a bit challenging. Whoever or whatever group we have identified as being the other, will still be a daily prayer intention and let's visualise them standing right next to Jesus. Pick an issue. What does your discourse sound like? God's Kingdom is peace. To gain peace we need to lose the Us vs. Them mentality. Maintaining dignity, care and respect is a good start.

O Prince of Peace,
Once more we hear the guns of war,
Once more we see the faces
Of frightened children.
We pray for the people of Ukraine,
That they may be granted peace;
We pray for the people of Russia,
That they may demand peace;
We pray for our country,
That we may be a positive part
Of peace making in this world.
O Prince of Peace,
Lead us from this dark time
To a deeper understanding
Of the global human family,
So all may break bread together
In the secure embrace of peace.
Peace in Gaza, West Bank, Israel, Sudan, Ukraine, Russia, Yemen, Myanmar, Israel, Palestine, Nigeria, DR Congo, Lebanon. The Holy Land
For the people of Israel, Occupied West Bank and Gaza suffering brutal attacks and bombardment.
