Prayers for this week
Friends in Christ,
God invites us to hold the needs of our sisters and brothers
as dear to us as our own needs.
Loving our neighbors as ourselves,
we offer our thanksgivings and our petitions
on behalf of the church and the world.
The World Council of Churches maintains an Ecumenical Prayer Cycle, aiding Christians to pray for those of faith around the world.
Hear us, O God.
We pray for an end to the suffering of the refugees,
for strength and resilience for the victims,
for peace and justice in the warring nations,
for courage and perseverance to those helping the afflicted,
for wisdom and compassion for the nations receiving the influx of the refugees,
through Jesus Christ your suffering servant.
