Praying for peace in the Middle East

This is a sad time. I am at a loss for words, so I share those of UU minister Rev. Linda Hansen:

"We pray for the power to see that we are all connected ... and that we ultimately help or harm ourselves in helping or harming one another. Out of this vision, may we have the will and the courage to work for a just and peaceful world in which every individual is treated with dignity."

(This prayer was offered, among others, at an interfaith prayer event in Milwaukee this week. You can read more here.)
