March 2016 marks the fifth anniversary of the Syrian civil war.
The unrest started following a simple protest over the arrest of a few youths who had written anti Assad graffiti on a wall on their way home from school. By now, however, the conflict has become so much more complicated and has caused untold misery and suffering for millions.
Here is a downloadable prayer to mark the occasion. You may want to pray on your own or as part of a congregation.
