A Call to Prayer for Peace in Jerusalem

After days of further heightened violent clashes between Palestinians and Israeli security forces near the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem, Pope Francis is calling “for moderation and dialogue”.

He is inviting us all to join him in prayer “so that the Lord may inspire all sides to come together with proposals for reconciliation and peace”.

God of peace and justice, raise up in all countries and faith communities people willing to work for reconciliation and an end to violence. Amen.
