Syria, Iraq and Gaza people in need

Syria, Iraq and Gaza have all been in the news lately as their people suffer the affects of violence and war.

Prayer for Refugees and Victims of War
Loving God,
no-one is a stranger to you,

and no one is ever far from your loving care.
In your kindness,
watch over refugees and victims of war,
those separated from their loved ones,
young people who are lost,
and those who have left home
or who have run away from home.

Bring them back safely to the place where they long to be,
and help us always to show your kindness to strangers,
and to all in need.

Grant this through
Jesus Christ our Lord.
AMEN
