Gracious God, you promise us peace and salvation in Jesus. We humbly pray: God, in your goodness, hear our prayer.  

Give gladness and joy to our Jewish brothers and sisters as they end their celebration of Hanukkah.  

God, in your goodness, hear our prayer. 

Help us to end racism and hateful speech. 

God, in your goodness, hear our prayer. 

Heal victims of violence, bullying, and betrayal. 

God, in your goodness, hear our prayer. 

Our Father . . .  

May God shine light upon the darkness and fill our hearts with peace, through Jesus our redeemer. Amen.
