Prayer, Plain and Simple

Prayer, Plain and Simple

A Prayer on Holocaust Remembrance Day 2010

Today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day, 2010. We pause to pay our respects, to vow that such a terror will never happen again, to pay honor to the survivors and their families, and to pray for God’s justice and mercy and blessing in the face of the scars we all still bear for this grave injustice.

“God, today we who are not Jewish choose to remember the six million Jewish people who died under Nazi oppression during WWII. We can never expect to understand this horror. We can only ask for your mercy and justice today. May it never happen again. As the decades pass may those of us who were not touched by this tragedy still never forget what happened. And in this distant wake, bring a new and fresh blessing of favor on your chosen people, the Jews. Those of us who know of you because and through their legacy ask you to never forget your ancient promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Keep your covenant with them. Hold them close and fulfill their destiny. Bring healing to their grief and replace it instead with new hope and joy. In Jesus we pray this blessing…”
