Prayer for peace in Syria
How long oh Lord? How long?
We have been crying to you for peace in Syria; for an end to killing and despair, an end to hostilities on all sides. We thank you for the current cessation of hostilities and pray it may turn into a long lasting peace.
We cry to you for humanitarian aid to reach those most in need.
We beseech you for the rebuilding of ruined homes, businesses and communities.
We long for the repairing of the breach and the restoration of streets where your children may dwell in harmony.
We cry out that justice, truth and love may prevail for all the people of Syria.
We pray in the name of the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ our Lord.
