We pray for the people of Gaza and Israel. The very thought that such atrocities can be justified and meted out to another person, let alone that the victims are innocent civilians, is beyond comprehension. Upwards of 4,000 people have already been killed, many more maimed and injured.
Dear God, in the name of all that

Enter this house of worship –feel the peace,
Warming our thoughts and feelings, bringing us grace;
Giving ourselves to worship, music and praise;
Gath’ring with friends, together our voices to raise.
Bring to this house of worship love and joy,
Let nothing disturb you
Let nothing frighten you
All things pass away
Only Love remains
Patience obtains all things
She who has Love lacks nothing
Love alone is enough.

O Soul of love, great well of peace,
help us to love, not fear;
we cherish stillness, quiet, space,
but worldly thoughts press near.
We need our friends,
yet we hold back; no-one is constant, true;
but human contact then
Peace means not-war
Peace means no violence
Peace means we will have learned not to fight over disagreements
Peace means humanity will have finally grown up
Peace means kindness without limits
Peace means there will be enough plough shares to go round
Peace means equity between all people
Peace means trust and respect
