Peace Prayer of the Day

God of the Jew
God of the Christian
God of the Muslim
God of us all,
stop our warring madness.

Keep us from ghettoizing your holy people.
Keep us from ghettoizing ourselves from the pain of the world!

Keep us mindful of the light that shines in the midst of deep despair
how together with your Spirit, we can overcome the warring madness.

God of the Samaritan, Pharisee and Priest in all of us,
unfold love from within our hearts -
un-wring us from the twisted mess we've made of life and love
shape us into the identity you bless us with - "beloved"
until the only orthodoxy available is our love of you.
