Below is an excellent prayer for the classroom! It is a useful resource for teaching World Religions and explaining significance of Holy Land to not only Judaism but also Christianity and Islam. It promotes a positive outlook on the relationship that can be created between these religious traditions.

Muslim, Jewish, Christian Prayer for Peace

 “O God, you are the source of life and peace. Praised be your name forever. We know it is you who turn our minds to thoughts of peace. Hear our prayer in this time of war.

“Your power changes hearts. Muslims, Christians, and Jews remember, and profoundly affirm, that they are followers of the one God, children of Abraham, brother and sisters. Enemies begin to speak to one another; those who were estranged join hands in friendship. Nations seek the way of peace together.

 “Strengthen our resolve to give witness to these truths by the way we live. Give to us: understanding that puts an end to strife; mercy that quenches hatred, and forgiveness that overcomes vengeance. Empower all people to live in your law of love.”
