Prayers for “de-escalation” of international tensions in the Middle East.  Prayers that the nation of Israel will not retaliate against Iran in light of the April 13 Iranian bombardment of Israel. Shalom, shalom, shalom,…

Prayers for all people living in the Middle East.  Prayers for residents of the Gaza Peninsula, for Palestinians, for Israelis, for Muslims, Jews, Christians, people of all faith traditions, and people affiliated with no faith tradition.  All are children of God.  

Prayers for all victims (physical, emotional, spiritual) of the March 22 terrorist attack at Crocus City Hall in Moscow, Russia. 

Prayers for the victims of the October 25 shooting in Lewiston, Maine. (2023)

Prayers for all human beings who are in the Middle East; especially civilians living in Gaza. We pray to God that forthcoming actions will not lead to injury or death of more innocent people.  An all-out, Israeli military assault on Gaza is not a solution.  Brutal, ruthless Israeli retaliation for the October 7 Hamas terrorist attack will not result in security or peace.  

Prayers for peace in the nation of Ukraine.  May God be present.  

Prayers for a major reduction in gun violence.  The atrocity of recurring “mass shootings” in the U. S. A. is a grievous circumstance which is unacceptable to God, and God summons all people of faith to take action for change.

Prayers for the victims of the March 16 shootings in Atlanta, Georgia. (2021)
