We have been crying to you for peace in Syria; for an end to
killing and despair, an end to hostilities on all sides.
We cry to you for humanitarian aid to reach those most in
need. We beseech you for the rebuilding of ruined homes,
businesses and communities.
We long for the repairing of the breach and the restoration
of streets where your children may dwell in harmony.
We cry out that justice, truth and love may prevail for all
the people of Syria. We pray in the name of the Prince of
Peace, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Prayer To End The Use Of The Death
Merciful Father, we ask your blessing on all we do to build
a culture of life. Hear our prayers for those impacted by
the death penalty. We pray for all people, that their lives and dignity as

they may experience our love and support and find comfort in
your compassion and in the promise of eternal life.
