For Countries Under Turmoil

Lord, bless these lands....
May peace and unity be restored
As they are home and refuge to many.

Lord, bless the leaders....
May they forget personal gain
And work for the good of everyone.
May they seek what is good and just
To lift the barrier that is separating their people.

Lord, bless the people....
May they remember that they are brothers and sisters
And that violence does not resolve conflict.

Lord, bless the foreigners....
May You Keep us safe and calm
And learn to help in some way, especially in prayer.

We ask this in Jesus' name. Amen.
