A Request to all Passers By...
or where you come from
No matter who you think is in the right
and who is in the wrong
If you go to mass
or keep the Sabbath
or look to Mecca when you pray
Or if you don't believe in anything
Please join in a prayer...
For the innocent lives living the horror we are lucky to only watch on our TV sets
For the children who are losing their mothers and fathers
For the children losing their own innocent lives
For the injured that they may heal
For the dead that God may rest their souls
For the angry that they find peace
For the confused that they may find their way
For the leaders that they may find wisdom
For Lebanon that it doesn't live through another war...God knows the last one did enough damage.
For the Holy land that it soaks no more blood
And for the world to remember our past mistakes....and not to repeat them.
The events of the past week have been horrific to say the least. True they may be happening "over there"...miles and miles away from most of us. But what kind of world are we leaving to our children if we simply just turn off the TV and forget about it?
Forgive my bias but I'm going to let the Lord have the last word here:
ليضيء على الجالسين في الظلمة وظلال الموت لكي يهدي اقدامنا في طريق السلام.
لو 1: 79
To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.
