“You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.” Matthew 6: 24
Still-speaking God, we pray for your protection to enfold innocent people on all sides. We pray your peace will serve as a source of strength for them. We pray your comfort will blanket them. We pray, God, that you will interrupt the fighting in order to stir their hearts and guide them safely through the night. We prayerfully ask for forgiveness, grace and reconciliation throughout these countries for all people. We pray, God, that your presence be known. Amen.
