Prayers for Syria
Monday 15 March 2021 marks the tenth anniversary of the conflict in Syria.
We pray for the suffering people of Syria and for an end to the violence.
God of mercy,
Pour out your peace upon us all.
Watch over our brothers and sisters in Syria,
especially those who have fled their homes.
Lead them to a place of safety
and bring comfort to those who mourn.
Inspire us all to share the light of your hope,
and to reach out in a spirit of compassion.
Make us channels of your peace,
so all your children may live free from fear, conflict and pain.
We ask this through Christ our Lord, Prince of Peace,
“The people that walked in darkness
have seen a great light;
of the inhabitants of a country
in shadow dark as death
light has blazed forth."
God of light,
We pray for our neighbours in Syria
walking in the shadow of darkness.
In you, Lord, may we see a flicker of hope,
a warm ray of light to heal our hearts.
Pour upon us all your glorious light,
your radiance brings us to fullness of life.
We pray as one the fighting may cease,
and all may be blessed by the dawn of your peace.
We ask this through your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.
