Prayers for the Middle East

 

Pray for Peace in the Holy Land

Daughters around the world have been requested to pray for peace in the Holy Land. Prayers for this ongoing conflict and its resolution are always needed, sadly.  The following prayer may be helpful:

O Holy One, we know that violence between your children is not according to your will and we pray that you will help and guide the Israeli and Palestinian peoples to bring the current warfare to an end. We pray for open hearts for all sides to listen and work for peace. We pray for a change of heart for everyone involved in this struggle that they will realize that solutions to this conflict are to be found in negotiations and not weapons. We ask also for safety for our fellow Christians in the Holy Land that they may continue to serve as living representatives of your Son in the land of his earthly birth. We ask all this in His Name, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen


Prayer for Iraq

Solidarity 

Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord; Lord, hear my voice.
Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy.

Psalm 130:1-2

Almighty and all powerful God, creator of the world and the nations, we bring before you all those caught up in conflict in the Middle East.

We pray for

  • Protection for those who are living in fear and cannot escape the violence

  • Comfort for those who are mourning the loss of friends and family members

  • Safety for those fleeing for their lives

  • Strength for those living through the horror of current events

  • Freedom from torture and death for those dominated by others

  • Healing for those who have been injured

  • Grace for those who have died

  • Courage for those facing the ultimatum of conversion or submission

  • Empowerment of those who are working to provide aid to all those in need

  • Wisdom for those in leadership

  • Peace by ending violence, genocide, and oppression that all may live together as brothers and sisters

  • Blessings on the important work of Canon Andrew White, Reverend David Pileggi, and others who work for peace and reconciliation in the Middle East and around the world

  • Reconciliation between all God's children

  • Love to conquer all hatred

  • God's Word to reign throughout the region

Look with compassion, Lord God, on the whole human family; take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth; that, in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around your heavenly throne; we ask this through Our Saviour, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you forever and ever. Amen.
