This prayer was written by a young man living in Syria; He is married and has one child.
Please use this prayer as a basis to help shape your own prayers for the people of Syria, many of whom live in a constant fear of persecution.
Thank you Lord,
For all that you have done and are still doing.
I trust your will is always good and finally you will turn evil to good.
I know that you are not silent, but patient…
But how long will it take Lord?
I am looking forward to a new beginning amongst my people.
My own desire is that evil will stop
and that we will see your glory shine again in the darkness.
I’m longing for healing, for restoration. I cry out to you, Lord.
I’m longing for a new generation to take their place in your kingdom,
To be the light and salt of this nation.
Help me to see my role in this transformation.
Protect me and be with me.
Carry me, day by day.
With many peaceful blessings
