Blessed God, we turn to you in prayer. Please be with the Egyptian people, touch their hearts - clerics, priests, politicians, all factions, men, women and children. May all live in peace, your peace. How can reconciliation be brought about? Desmond Tutu showed us what a difference it made in South Africa. We must ask what part our country is playing in the continued conflicts? How is each one of us part of the conflict, if we are?
We Make Bold to Pray
Blessed One, may you be honored.
May your Peace and Reconciliation be with us in this world.
Feed us with spiritual food and forgive (my/our) _________
As (I/we) forgive ____________
Stay with us during the terror, bloodiness and killing
and shield us from all evil.
Yours is the commonwealth,
the power to create life,
and the glory goes to you now and forever. Amen
Come, all you who have wandered
far from the path,
who have separated yourselves
A banquet is prepared for you in the
heart's Secret Room.
There you will find the way home;
a welcome ever awaits you!
Even as you acknowledge the times
you have erred,
the forgiveness of the Beloved
will envelop you.
Call upon the Beloved when fear
when you feel overwhelmed;
The Eternal Listener will heed
you will find strength to face
Befriend all that is within you,
discover the Secret Room in
Then will abundant blessings enter
your home; and,
you will welcome the Divine Guest
who is ever with you.
