With the people of Syria




Lord, the Ruler and Giver of peace, united with the plea of our Holy Father, we pray for the people in Syria. May the bloodsheds, bomb blasts, acts of violence harming the innocent ones and children, be brought to a close through dialogue, strategies that lead to reconciliation and order. Their present pathetic plight without food, medicine and medical care, are made even worse with prices soaring high for all commodities. May people of nations come forward to their assistance and help to move towards the desired peace.

Lord, be with your people, the people of Syria, touch their hearts and lead them along paths that bring about reconciliation. Bless them with peace and prosperity.
