MIA Prayer Intention for the Coming week
That we may be peace-makers and peace - keepers, we pray...
'... O God, for the grace
to be our best selves.
We ask for the vision
to be builders of the human community
rather than its destroyers.
We ask for the humility as a people
to understand the fears and hopes of other peoples.
We ask for the love it takes
to bequeath to the children of the world to come
more than the failures of our own making.
We ask for the heart it takes
to care for all the peoples
of Afghanistan and Iraq, of Palestine and Israel
as well as for ourselves...'
From Prayer for World Peace - Joan Chittister, OSB
