Prayer about our part in Syria
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.

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.
