Sunday: Pray for a peaceful end to the conflicts at the root of this refugee crisis

17/02/2016, by Unite Help, in Prayers, 0 comments

Spirit of wisdom and grace,
the power of truth and judgement;
we pray for all who are working for peace
in the tangled conflict of Syria today.

For international leaders holding a thread of control,
for the politicians holding a thread of power,
for the religious leaders holding a thread of authority,
for the fighters holding a thread of influence,
and the citizens clinging to a thread of hope.

Bring unity through the untangled order of justice.

Bring reconciliation through truthful dialogue.

Bring new life through patient diplomacy,
determined mediation and courageous peace-making.

We pray in the name of Christ,
our source of inspiration and confidence.

Amen.
