Praying for others

Our Father who art in Heaven, I come to thee with sadness, hope and faith;
Sadness about the suffering of children, women, elderly people and the disabled in the current fighting taking place in Lebanon and Israel as well as in the ongoing instability in Iraq and Afghanistan. Innocent lives have been lost. Young lives have been lost. It is a tragedy Lord.

I don't forget the suffering people of Somalia, victims of the civil instability in Sudan's Darfur Region, the hungry people of Niger and the poor of Zimbabwe (the former breadbasket of Africa) now suffering from hunger, disease and unemployment with inflation reported today at one million Z$ to a British £.

I have hope Lord, that:-

  • all this suffering will come to an end;
  • you will answer our prayers;
  • these wars come to an end;
  • you will remind the world's powerful rulers about their obligation to safeguard lives rather than to score points through proxy wars
  • you will bring sanity to the merchants of death who are trading in and transporting more and more sophisticated bombs to be used against defenceless civilians
  • human beings will one day learn to resolve any conflict through peaceful proccesses always and everywhere

I also have faith in the Lord, that:

  • He will deliver us from evil, through the blood of Jesus Christ for ever and ever!

Amen
