Prayers for Peacemakers. 1 February
In these dark times when hatred and racism
are on the rise around the world, we invite you to build bridges to
bring us closer to each other and to overthrow the walls that divide us by our
faith, our race, our gender, and our migration status.
Let us pray that each of us can overcome the walls that separate us.
Let us embrace our sisters and brothers of
Muslim, Yezidi and other diverse identities, faiths and origin. Let us welcome
all those who have had to leave their homes due to war. Let us pray for the
hearts and minds of those who insist on dividing us to open wide.
