Muslim, Jewish, Christian Prayer for Peace

IraqO God. you are the source of life and peace.
Praised be your name forever.
We know that it is you who turn our minds to thoughts of peace.
Hear our prayer in this time of war.

Your power changes hearts,
Muslim, 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 are estranged join hands in friendship,
and 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.

(Pax Christi USA/Fellowship of Reconciliation)
