Prayer for Peace with Iraq

God of hope and compassion,
Holy One of Abraham and Sarah,
who called our ancestors in faith to journey
to a new future
Be with us as we pray.

We remember today the country of Iraq from which they were summoned,
ancient land of the Middle East,
realm of two rivers
birthplace of great cities and civilization.

May we who name ourselves children of Abraham and Sarah
call to mind our sisters and brothers in the East and with them look to a new future.

God of reconciliation, God of painful sacrifice uniting humankind
we long for the day when you will provide for all nations on earth
your blessing of peace.

But now with strife and war at hand
help us to see in each other a family likeness
a common inheritance as children of God.

Keep hatred from the threshold of our hearts,
and preserve within us a generous spirit
which recognizes all peoples as children of God.

This we ask in the name of the One
who came to offer us
the costly gift of abundant life.  


Oración Por Paz con Iraq

Dios de esperanza y compasión,
El Señor Yavé de Abraham y Sara,
quien llamó a nuestros antepasados con fe para viajar hacía un futuro nuevo Esté con nosotras mientras rezamos.

Hoy recordamos al pais de Iraq, el pais del que estaban llamados, tierra antigua del Oriente, reino de dos rios, tierra de cuidades y civilizaciónes grandes.

Que nosotras que nos llamamos hijas de Abraham y Sara, Recordemos a nuestros hermanos y hermanas en el Oriente, y con ellos miremos hacia un futuro nuevo.

Dios de la reconciliación, Dios de un sacrificio penoso que une la raza humana, anhelamos el día en que tú darás a todas las naciones en la tierra tu bendición de paz.

Per ahora con guerra y rivalidad presente, nos ayudas a ver en cada uno una semejanza, una herencía común como niñas de Dios.

Manten el odio lejos de la puerta de nuestros corazones, Y conserve dentro de nosotras un espirítu generoso que reconozca a todos como hijas de Dios.

Esto te lo pedimos en el nombre del que vino para ofrecernos el costoso don de la vida abundante.
