Prayers for Peacemakers 12 January 2022 

Pray for those whose homes were demolished and those who were displaced by the fear of wars
A soldier stands on the left in the forefront, wearing a combat helmet and a mask and sunglasses. In the background, several pieces of large machinery destroy a building, black smoke and dust rise from it. A group of people stand to the right, watching.

Home demolitions, wars, occupation, poverty, homelessness, refugees and migrants. Many events have occurred that have led to the destruction and displacement of entire families who now have no shelter except the street. Maybe a family has a tent donated by charitable or international organizations in an attempt to shelter them and offer some food to quench their hunger. 

In this freezing cold, let us restore our humanity and pray for those who still haven’t found a home, for those whose homes were demolished and those who were displaced by the fear of wars. Let us pray for those who do not find shelter for their young children in this cold. Let us recognize our humanity and pray for them.
