ABM PRAYER

For all those affected by the conflict in Gaza and Israel

Almighty and Everlasting God: Our days are in your hands;

we lift up all those in the Holy Land who are victims of violence and injustice, that you might empower your Church to bring healing to the wounded, relief to the suffering, and comfort to those who mourn;

we pray also that you would soften the hearts of all those involved in the recent conflicts, that they would be led to work for justice and lasting peace in the land where your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, first came to bring hope and abundant life to all people;

these things we ask in his Holy Name.

Amen.
