Dear Jesus, we bring these prayers to you in full knowledge of the limitations
of our understanding about the conflict in n and the people involved. We ask
that you would bless us with humility as we continue to seek ways to pray for
situations such as this, which seem so bleak and desperate. Bless us also with
compassion, Lord, and above all the hope that comes from your presence even
in the darkest of times. For if we pray in faith and hope then we know that
through you, all things are possible.
Loving Jesus, we offer you our hearts in hope and praise. Amen.
God of transformation, we thank you that you are our guide on the journey towards
understanding ourselves. And we thank you that this journey does not end with us, but
enables us to engage lovingly and creatively in praying for others. As we continue in
prayer for ?the? conflict ?in n?, grant us the grace to remember what we hold in
common with those involved: the desire for safety, for belonging and for love. Draw our
prayers from the deep well of compassion which you supply, and bless this time shared
together with your transforming power.

Heavenly Father, who we love, I lift Your name over all the earth. Father, lately I have found myself in a place that I do not want to be in. Anger, hatred and bitterness is causing me to lash out at the people around me and especially at my dear loved ones.
I am on edge at every point, the slightest gesture upsets me. I cannot continue on like this, Oh Father, please hear my cry.
