Call To Prayer
The recent developments in Gaza and lsrael have profoundly shocked the international community in many different ways. We observe that the ongoing conflicts in the region have inflicted deep suffering and devastating consequences upon the people, amidst complex territorial disputes and longstanding hostility. ln the process, many lives have been affected and tragically lost. We are calling the Church to intercede fervently and pray for healing over the afflicted, restoration and for a peaceful solution to the deteriorating crisis.
Dear Lord, Creator of all human beings. We are all fearfully and wonderfully created in Your own image and likeness. We agree with Your words that human lives are precious in Your sight. We are deeply saddened by the effects of wars and conflict in Gaza and lsrael, killing many lives, displacing many families, destroying many homes. We pray for those who have lost their loved ones ln this current conflict. Lord, in their grief, comfort them with Your peace which surpasses all understanding. Heal their souls from bifferness and envelop them with Your love. lnsulate their hearts from hatred, and grant them the grace so needful to move on in their lives. Defend them, O Lord, those who are defenseless. Protect the people living in the region from the harm of war.
We pray for the supply of all that are needed: food, medical aids, financial assistance, acts of klndness and mercy, shelters for those who have lost their homes, and the peaceful passage of humanitarian personnel into the region. O Lord, we pray that the international community will contribute to the de-escalating of tension among parties in conflict. Lord, would you intervene in situations where they are beyond the reach of human effofts, that a long term peaceful solution can be achieved. Make us, Your Church, O Lord an instrument of Your peace, where there is hatred, let us sow love; where there is offence, pardon; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy, where there is pain, consolation.
Lord, look upon all those who are suffering with Your compassion. Save us Lord, and help fhem those who are helpless. ln the precious Name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the Lord guide you by His Holy Spirit as you remember Gaza and lsrael in your prayers.
With every blessing in Christ,
