Prayer for Friday 6 June 2014 #DDay70

Prayer for Friday 6th June
Today, from our church family, we pray for Dot McCloskey



Today marks the 70th anniversary of D Day.  We thank God for the courage and bravery of the men and women who took part in D Day, and whose great sacrifice brought peace to Europe. Heavenly father we pray for those for whom the memory of what happened this day 70 years ago still remains fresh, and for friends and loved ones who died in the struggle for peace. 

As we commemorate the events of 70 years ago, we also pray for places around the world where there is conflict this day, we pray especially for the people of Syria, Ukraine, Southern Sudan and the Central African Republic.  Jesus said "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God." Lord bless all those who are engaged in the struggle for justice and peace in our world this day. We ask this in the name of the Prince of Peace, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  Amen.
