A prayer for Yemen

Giver of Life,

Who hears the cries from Yemen;

of mothers choosing between medicine or food,

of parents grieving children lost to starvation,

of those who have given up everything in hunger.

Hear our cries for hope, for change, for peace. 

In your mercy, 

break political deadlocks,

soften hardened hearts,

change closed minds,

open unhearing ears.

Let people come before power.

Let life be holy again.

Let your justice and peace

shape the nation of Yemen

and the lives of all people.

Amen.
