Bishop Marc Andrus: a prayer for Syria

Most loving God, who holds all life in your hand, we pray you be with the people of Syria. Help the community of nations work creatively and non-violently, but resolutely and with courage for the restoration of peace in Syria. Be with our president and the Congress of the United States as they deliberate regarding intervention in Syria. We honor your Son Jesus Christ as the Prince of Peace and we hope to follow in the way he has led. Help us know and believe that there is a path of peace, and to see the way to walk it, while ensuring safety and security for the vulnerable. In the name of Christ we pray. Amen.
