A Prayer for Bethlehem at Christmas

A Prayer for Bethlehem at Christmas

We pray for Bethlehem.


May the town where the Prince of Peace was born know peace this Christmas.


May mothers in the refugee camps not weep for their children, as Rachel wept, but see a future for them free from fear and oppression.


May the people of Bethlehem experience the good news the angels promised and hope be rekindled in a community that sees so few signs of hope.


May the leaders of Israel and Palestine know that their fates are intertwined and pursue the difficult steps toward a just peace.


And may we be resolute in our support for all those who seek to bring peace, justice and reconciliation in a land we long to call Holy.


Amen.


Rev. Chris Rose
