World and Regional Concerns
O God, our refuge and strength, kindle in our hearts the love of peace, and guide with your wisdom the leaders of nations, so people may know the fullness of your love and live together in peace and harmony.
We pray for the children of the world, that they may grow up knowing love and security.
We pray that people learn to care for the earth so that it may continue, as God willed, to be a source of life for the entire human family.
We pray for the men and women in our armed forces, that you would keep them in your care.
Inspire us to share our goods with our neighbors around the world suffering from lack of food, clothing, and shelter.
And we especially lift up for your care the victims of the earthquake in Nepal, victims of war, oppression, prejudice, violence, and hatred – in Syria, Iraq, Ukraine, North Korea, countries in Africa, and elsewhere.
