With conflict in the world today like Gaza, Iraq and Syria (just to name a few) it’s no wonder we have such high volumes of refugees and migrants. Please say this prayer for peace in the Middle East.
God of peace, bearer of hope,
We seek your help for the peoples of the Middle East
Quiet our clamour of war
And guide us towards peace.
Where there is hatred and division
Sow seeds of calm and openness
Where there is destruction
Help us to rebuild
Where children are crying
Bring an end to tears
Shelter your peoples and protect them
Guide them and keep them from harm
Show us how to break down the barriers of history and fear
And breathe whispers of hope
They will hammer their swords into ploughshares and their spears into sickles. Nation will not lift sword against nation, no longer will they learn how to make war.” Isaiah 2:4
