Compassionate and life-giving God, we are horrified at the violence in Paris. Hold back the hands that kill and maim; turn around the hearts that hate. Grant instead your strong Spirit of Peace – peace that passes our understanding but changes lives. May Bishop Pierre Whalen, and all our brothers and sisters in the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe, know and feel your presence among them.
We join in prayer today with our Muslim brothers and sisters, particularly our friends at the Institute of Islamic and Turkish Studies here in Cary, who have condemned the actions in Paris and called on faith communities to join In prayer that we all may continue forward in the ways of God’s justice, love, and peace. We pray this through Jesus Christ, your son and our Lord. Amen.
Prayer composed by The Rev. George Adamik
