Prayer for the Aquarius, stranded at sea with 600+ rescued migrants on board

Heavenly Father, we ask your help on behalf of the Aquarius, which is stranded in the Mediterranean Sea with more than 600 rescued migrants on board. Lord, we are thankful for the general work of Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and specifically their rescue of these 629 migrants, including 123 unaccompanied minors. With thousands of people dying along this sea route last year, we are thankful MSF has prevented these people from tragedy. But, Lord, now the ship seeks a friendly harbor and, so far, has found none. You know so much more than us about this situation. We rejoice that you know all. EU nations are each trying to figure out what is best for their people and their lands. They are nervous about the massive flow of people crossing their borders. But, Lord, you know more than all of us that these are real people needing true safe harbor. May your Spirit of peace reign on the Aquarius. May your children among the refugees set an example of prayer, hope and faith. May they spread peace among their fellow passengers. And, Lord, we pray for the leaders of both MSF and the involved EU nations as they discern the best solution to this situation. We pray for clear guidance before the two days’ supplies run out for those on-board this ship. We desire the best possible outcome for as many people as possible, and for you to be glorified in this situation. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
