Let us pray:
A Collect (prayer) for this Sunday
God, give us grace to cast away the works of darkness and to put on the armour
of light, now in the time of this mortal life, in which your Son Jesus Christ
came to us in great humility; that on the last day, when he shall come again in
his glorious majesty to judge the living and the dead, we may rise to the life
immortal; through him who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the
Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen
A prayer from the (Anglican) Archbishop of Jerusalem
O God of all justice and peace
we cry out to you in the midst of the pain and trauma
of violence and fear which prevails in the Holy Land.
Be with those who need you in these days of suffering;
we pray for people of all faiths – Jews, Muslims and Christians and for all people of the land.
While we pray to you, O Lord, for an end to violence and the establishment of peace,
we also call for you to bring justice and equity to the peoples.
Guide us into your kingdom
where all people are treated with dignity and honour as your children
for, to all of us, you are our Heavenly Father.
In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
Archbishop Hosam Naoum, Primate of the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East
