Prayer for hope

Lord, hear our prayers for Syria. 
For people leaving everything behind to flee to safety, 
for those who have lost loved ones, 
for lives interrupted, educations stalled and families separated. 
Lord, bless your people.

We thank you for the work of partners, 
for the hospitality of neighbours, the generosity of strangers, 
for those who give of themselves to help others, 
for those who refuse to be silent in the face of injustice. 
Lord, bless your people.

Lord, give the people of Syria hope, 
for peace and justice to prevail, 
for there to be new beginnings for all people living in that land, 
for freedom to replace fear, and for there to be a better tomorrow. 
Lord, bless your people.
