Please say this prayer for Syria

And please spread the Syria prayer on your blog or Facebook or anywhere where it will be read....

    Prayer for peace in Syria

God of Compassion,
Hear the cries of the people of Syria,
Bring healing to those suffering from the violence,
Bring comfort to those mourning the dead,
Strengthen Syria’s neighbours in their care and welcome for refugees,
Convert the hearts of those who have taken up arms,
And protect those committed to peace.

God of Hope,
Inspire leaders to choose peace over violence and to seek reconciliation with enemies,
Inspire the Church around the world with compassion for the people of Syria,
And give us hope for a future of peace built on justice for all.

We ask this through Jesus Christ,
Prince of Peace and Light of the World,

Petition: For the people of Syria, that God may strengthen the resolve of leaders to end the fighting and choose a future of peace.

We pray to the Lord…


  1. Thank you for this prayer Richard. I have taken the liberty of reproducing it on 'whitesmokeahoy' - with acknowledgement of course. These are dangerous times,

  2. Amen.

  3. Perhaps St Michael's prayer as well for there are dark forces operating here.

  4. FrereRabit, thank you Brother.
    Gervase, a sound suggestion.
    Brian, dangerous times indeed. Many thanks.

  5. Absolutely pray for our brother Christians.

    I also pray and hope that President Obama does not do any retaliation on Assad.

    There are bad people on both sides, but the worst are the rebels.

  6. Diolch yn fawr Tito.
    And thanks for featuring LOTH on Big Pulpit. You are doing great work.
