Prayer for the people of Syria


Merciful Father,

the strength of all who suffer,

defender of all who trust in you,

whose compassion never fails;

look with mercy upon the stricken people of Syria,

touch the hearts of all who oppress,

that they may be open to the ways of justice and of people;

through Jesus Christ our Lord

who suffered and died for all

and who lives with you and the Holy Spirit

now and forever.
