Lord, today our thoughts and prayers once again turn to
Syria. We have this nagging sense that one day we will all chastise ourselves
for our apathy to this terrible conflict. One day there will be movies that
reveal how truly atrocious this situation is, and our children and
grandchildren will ask, "What do you remember? What did you do?"
Lord, show us what to do. Show us opportunities to bless our Syrian brothers
and sisters who suffer while we live generally comfortable lives. Compel us to pressure
our governments, send aid, knit hats, actually go and serve, or however each of
us can best help. And, as we have prayed before, Lord, may we not forget to
pray. May we sustain those who suffer through heavenly entreaties. And so
today, Heavenly Father, we ask again for your intervention in Syria. Bring
peace. Bring hope. Bring protection for those who need it. Send help. In Jesus'
name we pray, amen.
Yes, there really are ways for knitters to help refugees.
