Pray with and for the people of Syria




The grave and helpless situation in Syria is worsening. Recently Dweir village, near Lebanon was severely attacked and a good number of women and children too were killed. Their mode of torturing is so inhuman. Rebels are rebels. Some fight blindly others under indoctrination and others politically. It is the ordinary people who are victimized. This is seen abounding on the globe.


Let us pause for a moment, raise our hearts in prayer for those in authority with power to settle the issues and those in the forefront, those attacking and the  attacked, leaving the rest heavily laden with emotional pain, material loss and spiritual vacuum.

Let good sense and justice prevail. Gift us with lasting peace particularly to the war torn Syria and its victimized people.
