A Prayer for Syria

Lord of Life,

On the other side of the world, a nation is in turmoil.

The people fight for freedom.

They fight against an evil dictator.

They fight for justice.

They fight for release from oppression.

They fight for liberty.

In the process, families are torn apart.  Children die.  Homes are destroyed and chaos reigns.

We pray for the nation of Syria.  We pray for the people that they might know victory.  We pray for the government that it might put down its weapons, release its iron grip, and hear the cry of its people.
