A Prayer of Hope for Syria

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10)

We trust you, O Lord. You are the solid rock upon which we build our lives, and we pray and ask you to give peace to our hearts, to our country and to the whole world. Peace comes with forgiving and loving. We gain strength by loving each other. We cannot live on this earth without faith, hope and love. Only your promises give us hope and courage during these difficult days.

 “And after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will restore, support, strengthen, and establish you.” (1 Peter 5:7-10)
