We were all so shocked and horrified to see the devastation in Beirut after the explosion at the port. We please pray for the country of Lebanon, the residents of Beirut and all who are helping emergency services there.

God of love, whose compassion never fails;
Gather our hearts, minds, and voices as one as
we bring before you the griefs and perils of the people of Beirut, Lebanon
in the aftermath of this week’s catastrophic explosions.

United in solidarity with our Lebanese sisters and prayers, we pray:

May the beauty of the gardens of Lebanon be restored.
May the peace shattered in Beirut be renewed.
May your children taken from this world by the blasts in Beirut,
be welcomed mercifully into your embrace.
And, may their loved ones who remain be comforted by your love.

In God’s good name we pray. Amen.

We pray for those who do not yet know Jesus in our families, our village, our workplaces and our friendship groups. We pray that from the tremendous difficulties of Coronavirus, people will feel compelled to ask questions and seek answers which lead them to God and an understanding of His love for them. As Christians, May we have the right answers for people when needed and be willing and able to give voice to our own hope and faith. Amen.
