Friday 15th March 2013 marks two years since the start of the Syria conflict. The people of Syria need our prayers in this time of conflict and uncertainty.
On Thursday 14th March Tearfund is asking supporters and friends around the world to remember in prayer the people of Syria and to pray for a peaceful resolution to the conflict in Syria.
Over a million Syrians have now fled the country as the conflict at home escalates, and millions of people have been displaced within the country. Many have been forced to leave everything behind. They have no shelter and are struggling to access food and have no certainty over what lies ahead. Tearfund partners are working to help meet immediate needs.
The Inspired is joining this prayer day, please consider praying with us on that day too. Visit http://www.tearfund.org/syria for further news to guide your prayers.
A prayer for Syria
Today we remember before you the people of Syria.
Our hearts ache for their pain and suffering.
Lord we ask for your comfort to be made known.
We pray for all who are responding in love in Syria and in the surrounding countries.
Bless them as they work day and night to help those in need.
Lord we ask for your mercy to be made known.
Prince of Peace
We ask you to raise up peacemakers
Grant discernment and wisdom to leaders and others with influence, that a road of peace may be found.
Please help us to be faithful in your ministry.
Lord we ask for your peace to be made known.
