PRAYERS FOR PEACE IN ISRAEL + PALESTINE – St. Mary Star of the Sea, Hastings

God of peace, bearer of hope,  
we seek your help  
for the peoples of the Middle East. 

Quiet the clamour of war  
and guide us towards peace. 

Where there is hatred and division  
sow seeds of calm and openness. 

Where there is destruction  
help us to rebuild. 

Where children are crying  
bring an end to tears. 

Shelter your peoples and protect them  
Guide them and keep them from harm. 

Show us how to break down the barriers of history and fear  and breathe whispers of hope. 

Linda Jones / CAFOD
