Today begins a week of focused daily intercession for God’s intervention in the catastrophic Ebola crisis ravaging West Africa. We’re joining with SIM and others around the world in Praying to end Ebola.
The following prayer comes from US (formerly USPG) and their Ebola update page:
Prayers for West Africa:
God of our anguish, we cry to you
For all who wrestle with Ebola.
Grant we pray, peace to the afraid,
Your welcome to the dying and
Your comfort to those living with loss.
And, merciful Father,
bless those many loving hands
That bravely offer care and hope.
God of healing,
whose Son healed those who were brought to him.
Hear our prayer for the peoples of West Africa
suffering from the Ebola outbreak.
Inspire and enable your church
to be a source of healing, comfort and hope to those affected,
and an agent for the education
and equipping of communities
to stop the spread of this disease.
For the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.
I’ll try to post at least one more Ebola prayer entry later today.
