Prayer for God’s people — Ramani Leathard, UK

This prayer comes from Christian Aid UK, written by Ramani Leathard, Christian Aid’s Head of Region for South East Asia and Afghanistan. It was originally written for the people of Afghanistan.

O God of mercy and of peace,
We hold your suffering people in prayer.
Be living bread to those who are hungry each day.
Be healing and wholeness to those who have limited access to health care.
Be their true home to all who have been displaced.
Be open arms of loving acceptance to those who fear because of their gender, ethnicity, religious or political views.
Be peace to those engaged in armed conflict and those who live within its shadow.
Turn our hearts and minds to your ways of just and gentle peace.
Open our eyes to see you in all acts of compassionate care.
Strengthen our hearts to step out in solidarity with your suffering people and
Hold us all in your unfailing love.
