Peace in Syria - pray and fast today!

Shlom lekh bthoolto Mariam....

A Prayer for Peace in Syria

Hold back the hand of our politicians O Lord
let them not strike those whom they wish to destroy,
regardless of blame and accusation.
Let your Peace triumph so that little children may live and grow in your love.

And, with the intercession of your Blessed Mother whose wishes you have always granted, bring peace to Syria and her neighbours,
Bring your light to the Islamists, dictators and foreign powers.
Give hope to your people, feed your lambs and guard your sheep.

Keep us from the easy solutions of retribution and vengeance,
bring us the gifts of wisdom and peace;
let good counsel prevail and, at all times, keep us within your fold.
