Please bless the terrorists. Give them the Grace and Light they need to have a change of heart.
Send down your Spirit into their hearts and transform their hate to love.
Bless the terrorists with true insight to see that it's You who has given life and it is not their right to take it away.
God, I don't understand their mindset. I don't know why they are so possessed by the need to destroy. Knowing their goal makes me tremble. They have already spilled the blood of humanity and they have promised more of the same. Yet, they are your children, too.
God bless the terrorists - that's so difficult for me to say. I am a Christian and among those they wish to "wipe off the face of the earth." Yet, still I am a Christian and in that spirit I send you this prayer.
God bless the terrorists with your forgiveness and peace.
God bless the terrorists so that in the fullness of time they will know your salvation.
I ask this in the name of God for the sake of all of humanity. Amen.
