PRAYER OF THE HOLY FATHER  
BENEDICT XVI
AT THE WESTERN WALL 

Jerusalem 
Tuesday, 12 May 2009

 

God of all the ages,
on my visit to Jerusalem, the “City of Peace”, 
spiritual home to Jews, Christians and Muslims alike,
I bring before you the joys, the hopes and the aspirations,
the trials, the suffering and the pain of all your people throughout the world.

God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,
hear the cry of the afflicted, the fearful, the bereft;
send your peace upon this Holy Land, upon the Middle East, 
upon the entire human family;
stir the hearts of all who call upon your name, 
to walk humbly in the path of justice and compassion.

“The Lord is good to those who wait for him,
to the soul that seeks him” (Lam 3:25)!
