In light of the hostage situation at Congregation Beth Israel, let us join together in this prayer of the faithful: 

"For an end to violence, terrorism and intimidation based on fear, for those who are hostages at Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville, and the entire Jewish community there who are our brothers and sisters, because they are children of Abraham, that they may know a restoration of well-being and peace and our loving care and concern, we pray to the Lord."
