Prayer for Gaza & Israel

Almighty Father, kindle, we pray, in every heart the true love of peace, and guide with your wisdom those who take counsel for the nations of the earth, that in calm your dominion may increase until the earth is filled with the knowledge of your love; especially grant peace to Jerusalem and all who live in Israel and the Gaza Strip, that violent thoughts would disappear, weapons of destruction would vanish, and all hate would be conquered by your perfect compassion, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
