It is with that hope in mind, on this day dedicated to the pursuit of universal human rights, that I ask all MCCers and people of faith around the globe to join me in praying for: +
An end to the wars in Iraq, Afhanistan and Pakistan, and for the safety
of all in harm’s way. +
An increase in justice and the extension of human rights for all people,
especially LGBT people, those living with HIV/AIDS, those living in
poverty, refugees, and all whose lives have been torn apart by wars. May
just and right relationships bring the world to peace.
Join me in praying today that: +
Every leader around the globe who is charged with making decisions
that promise to impact all of us, will do so with the pursuit of peace as
their ultimate goal. +
Every person and nation trapped in the cycles of violence and counter-
violence, from Israel to Palestine to the Congo and Uganda, will find a
new way, a more promising path for sharing life together. +
Every human being will use each moment as the moment to speak up
for and take risks for, and live and act for peace.
I call on MCCers around the globe and people of faith everywhere to pray with me today and every day
of this Advent Season, as we honor the one crowned “Prince of Peace,” for an end to the violence, terrorism and suffering so many know as their daily reality. Pray with me for that a new day of hope and promise will dawn on this earth and all its peoples.
