A Prayer for the Middle-East
O Lord, bring an end to the tragedy and suffering in the Middle East. Millions of Christians are being persecuted for their beliefs by Islamists, forced to flee their homes or face being killed, often in horrifying ways. Christian women and children are being raped and forced into sex-slavery. Deliver Your Church and Your people from every evil with Your mighty hand. Help us, O God, for You were crucified and died for the salvation of all. Help us, that among us and in all the world, hatred may be replaced with love, unrest may be replaced with peace, and sorrow may be replaced with happiness. Remember our enemies, those who hate and oppress Your people, and repay them not according to their deeds, but rather give them reason and understanding, and bring them into relationship with You.
Save, O Lord, and protect the Yazidis, who are also under attack from Islamists, and likewise face murder, rape, and sex-slavery.
Save, O Lord, and have mercy upon the nation of Israel. Shield it with Your love, protect it, and let it know peace. Send Your light and wisdom to its leaders, and direct them with Your good counsel.
Bless, O Lord, and strengthen the defenders of our Holy Land; O God, grant them salvation and crown them with victory. Establish peace in the land and everlasting joy for its inhabitants. This we pray in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
