Bethlehem Prayer Service

Almighty God, Creator of our diverse human family: you fashion us in your image and command us to love one another. Stretch out your arm that the wall shall come down in Bethlehem, the birthplace of your Son, the Prince of Peace. May the crumbling wall herald the end of all barriers which divide us and may we be bound together in that love that gives rise to harmony among all people. All this we ask with expectant hearts through Christ Jesus, our lord. Amen.

In this prayer service, two churches join together in simulcast over the Internet: Washington National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., and Christmas Lutheran Church in Bethlehem, West Bank. What remarkable things technology lets us do!
