Almighty and merciful God,
whose Son became a refugee
and had no place to call his own;
look with mercy on those who today
are fleeing from danger,
homeless and hungry.
Bless those who work to bring them relief;
inspire generosity and compassion in all our hearts;
and guide the nations of the world towards that day
when all will rejoice in your Kingdom of justice and of peace;
From The Independent: A treatment center came under attack by an angry crowd and was closed.
Our Lord and King,
Only You are God. The people of West Africa have no one to turn to but You. Help them, we pray. Many lives are at stake.
Remember Your children in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Mali, O Lord. Make Yourself known in this time of their afflictions. Give them courage, King of all gods and Ruler over all dominions. Give Your people the right words to say when they face fear; change the hearts of the ungodly to turn to You. Guard and protect the health care workers.
You are our joy. Almighty God, listen to the prayers of Your people. Rescue them and take away their fears. Amen.
