A Prayer for Peace in the Middle East
God of Justice,
bless those who work for peace through justice.
Strengthen their resolve in the face of seemingly endless violence.
Guide the leaders of the people of the Middle East to know your will and to support a just peace for all of your children.
God of Love,
lifting up the holy land for all humankind,
breathe love and compassion into our prayers with a
desire for nothing other than peace:
peace in our hearts,
peace for all creation, and
especially peace in the land that is called holy.
God of Hope,
we lift up the city of Jerusalem,
distracted and divided,
yet still filled with promise as all the cities of the world.
Come again into our cities, places of worship,
Upper Rooms and Gethsemanes,
that we may be given sight to recognize you.
God of Mercy,
even as we long to understand that which is often
beyond our comprehension,
we lay before you the hearts, minds and bodies of all
those suffering from conflict in Palestine and Israel.
Shower upon all the people of the Holy Land the spirit of
justice and reconciliation.
God of the Nations,
give to all our people the blessings of well-being,
freedom, and harmony, and,
above all things, give us faith in you that we may be
strengthened to care for all those in need until the
coming of your son, our Saviour and Lord.

The Christmas “Giving Tree” is in the Narthex! If you wish to participate, please remove one of the white tags hanging on the tree for each person in your family who would like to buy a gift for one of the people served by the Help Center. If you would like help from the Outreach fund for this effort, please let Deacon Bookie know. The gift should Not be more than $50; most should be much less. Once you have purchased your gift, attach the sticker to the gift, but DO NOT WRAP any gift. Gifts must be brought to church on Sunday, December 3rd.
We are continuing to receive the Estimate of Giving forms for which we thank you! If you have not yet submitted your form, please feel free to place your 2024 Estimate of Giving in the offering basket on Sunday, enter it online at stbrigit.org/eog-form, drop it off or mail it to the church. These estimates are what your BCC will use to know what we have to offer towards our 2024 work and budget as a church. Thank you for the work and gifts that you provide!
Save the date! Sunday, December 17!
Join St. Brigit folk for a festive coffee hour celebration of our Loaves and Fishes In-gathering. We will rejoice together for the 2024 estimates of giving we have received! Hope to see you there.
