  • A Prayer for our Muslim Brothers and Sisters
    by John T. Pawlikowski, OSM, Ph.D
  • Prayer for Peace in Syria
    We have been crying to you for peace in Syria; for an end to killing and despair, an end to hostilities on all sides.
    We cry to you for humanitarian aid to reach those most in need. We beseech you for the rebuilding of ruined homes, businesses and communities.
    We long for the repairing of the breach and the restoration of streets where your children may dwell in harmony.
    We cry out that justice, truth and love may prevail for all the people of Syria. We pray in the name of the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ our Lord.
  • Prayer for Inclusion
    Creator God, we are your people.
    We look to the future with optimism and with faith in you,
    As we pursue our call to provide justice and fullness of life 
    For all people with mental illness.
    We pray that every man, woman and child
    May develop their potential And meet you
    In themselves and in one another. 
    May we enjoy a totally welcoming community, 
    With you as our center, Joined hand in hand with our sisters and brothers.
    We ask this in Jesus’ name.
