“UK Parliament is to be recalled on Thursday to discuss response to alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria”
May it be, then, that every peace-loving child and woman and man upon earth pray today for wisdom, discernment and grace in time of great trial.
Let no one underestimate the extreme burden resting now upon the human shoulders of any and all – wheresoever they are, and whomsoever they represent – now called upon to make urgent decisions in the face of unimaginable complexity and danger.
In company with Jesus and the whole glad company of Heaven’s Shalom, in company too with all who pray on earth for safety and peace for all humankind, and in the power of God’s Spirit, I pray
May the God and Source of life
And of every good in every living thing
Have mercy on us all
And grant us grace, mercy and peace
