As relentless as the rising sun, 
may we, steadfast God, 
pray relentlessly, 
until the violence, war, and bloodshed in Gaza ends. 
Give us the fortitude to pray, without ceasing, 
          until the safety, well-being, and dignity of all people is cherished and held as sacred; and
          until elected officials and those in positions of power safeguard the most vulnerable and protect the human rights and dignity of people in Palestine and Israel.
Give us the courage to pray boldly with 
          our hearts, our words, our actions, and our resources
until all people in Palestine and Israel can enjoy freedom, justice, and peace in abundance.
May it be so,

—Alydia Smith
