“And don't lose heart and don't grieve, you will be successful if you are a true believer.” AL Quran 3:139
O God, you are peace, from you comes peace, to you returns peace, you are blessed ,o the owner of Majesty and honor.
Let us pray to God that one day all people recognize the sanctity of human life and our common humanity. Let's pray to God that we all humans learn to cherish our diversity and not make it a source of discord, conflict and discrimination.
Let's pray to God to free us from fear of terror, bigotry and racial discrimination. Let's pray to God to grant us His everlasting love and help us turn to the roots of our faiths to learn how to live in this world of diversity and pluralism.
Let's bow down in humility to the one who created us all and ask for His Mercy and compassion.
We plead to you God to accept our prayers, so that by your goodness, peace may return to all people. . Our Lord, hear the supplications of all who call to you in fear and frustration.
O God, our sustainer , make your presence known to those who have turned away from you and do not seek your guidance. Help us be your instruments to establish peace and justice for all.
Hear us God and have mercy on us , Ameen!
