God of refuge, the rock in whom we trust,
watch over our sisters and brothers in [insert country].
Bring comfort to those who grieve,
shelter to those who are homeless,
and sustenance to those who hunger and thirst.
God of mercy, open our hearts to your grace,
so that we are filled with compassion and a generosity of spirit,
and inspire us to take action.
Spirit of love, pour out your peace like a healing balm,
which brings hope in place of despair.
Prayer: Catherine Gorman/CAFOD
