|By Jean Jullien|
Almighty God, pour out your grace and peace upon all those who suffer today. For those who are reeling from the attacks in France and Lebanon, and all those throughout the world who are in harm's way, we pray that they might feel the blessing of your healing power. We know that what appears impossible to us is within your power to grant. Send your Holy Spirit among us, and enliven us to find solutions to difficult problems, to bring peace where there is war, to bring understanding where there is confusion, and to bring love where there is hate. All this we ask through your son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
(The Rev. Peter M. Carey, Chaplain, Berkeley Preparatory School)
