Prayer for Friday 14th March

Today from our church family we pray for Helen Bodley.

Tomorrow marks three years since the start of the war in Syria. Since the uprising began in 2011, over 100,000 people have been killed and millions more displaced, and peace seems further away than ever. We pray for all who have lost homes and loved ones, those in refugee camps in neighbouring countries, those trapped in cities under siege, those who lack food, sanitation and medical care. We pray for the fighters and leaders on all sides, that they may find a genuine desire for peace and reconciliation; and for all those involved in the diplomatic effort. Lord of hope, help us not to despair, but to trust in you, the Prince of Peace. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
