World and Regional Concerns
God of liberation, you saw your people as slaves in Egypt and delivered them from captivity; you see works of violence and weep. Relieve the suffering of all who are victims of domestic violence and abuse. Grant them peace of mind and renewed faith in your protection and care. Protect all from the violence of others and bring offenders to justice. We remember before you those whose lives were taken on account of such horrific acts, comfort the living in their grieving and surround them with your care and compassion. Amen.
God our refuge and strength, we pray for peace in Syria and throughout the world. May peace prevail in our homes, at work and in all our relationships. We pray for peace throughout the Middle East.
We pray for all those neighbors around the world in need of food, clothing, shelter and safety where war, oppression, and famine prevail.
For Peace in Distress
Merciful God, you give us strength in time of need. Surround all of the above with your steadfast love and lighten their burden. By your Spirit’s power, free them from distress and refresh their minds and hearts, through the power of the Risen Christ, our Lord. Amen.
