Prayers for Peacemakers, November 21, 2012

God, be a pillar of nonviolent defense against occupation, apartheid, domination, theft, bombardment, phosphorus chemical weapons, missiles, drones, assassination of journalists, propaganda, home demolition, sexism, racism and despair. Let offenses yield to nationhood, dignity and zealous compliance with the Geneva Conventions in Gaza and everywhere.

He is coming with the clouds; every eye will see him, 
even those who pierced
him; and on his account all the tribes
of the earth will wail. So it is to be.
Amen.    -Revelation 1:7
