Father, we are heartbroken over the loss of life from the recent airstrike at a market in Tigray. We grieve for the 30 people who were killed. We are even more distraught as we learn that help was available to the injured, yet medical personnel were denied access to them. Lord, the people of Tigray are living in a war zone and are in desperate need of your intervention. The violence in this area has been escalating due to conflict between the current and former government – political adversaries who are mercilessly at odds. In addition, neighboring military forces from Eritrea have contributed to attacks in the region. Father, this is a dire situation. Please make your presence known among the Tigrayan people. Provide for their needs and give them refuge. Bring peace and stability to the area. Help them to focus their faith on you and to remain unshakeable in these turbulent times. In Jesus’ name, amen.
