Prayers for Peacemakers, 13 September 2017

Today we are witnessing the horrors of yet another genocide, that of the Rohingya people in Myanmar. Reports talk about the indiscriminate killings, mass rapes, of homes and villages destroyed and deliberately set on fire. Especially revolting are horror stories of children slaughtered with knives. Abuses are rampant in the form of torture and other punishments.

"The brutality is unthinkable. They're killing children. They're killing women. They're killing the elderly. They're killing able-bodied men and boys," a human rights activist reports, "It is indiscriminate.ā€¯

We urge all peace loving people to come together and pray for Peace in this region of our world today.

PRAYER FOR PEACE

God, in You we are all One.
No one is a stranger to you
and no one is ever far from your loving care.
In your kindness, watch over the Rohingya refugees who are suffering the horrors of indiscriminate killings and unspeakable crimes against humanity. They are the innocent victims of a war not of their own making.

Our hearts go out to them in their hour of need and desperation.
We ask you to help us relieve their sufferings,
as they are our own brothers and sisters, our kith and kin
and your very own Beloved people.
Bring them to safety, and to shelters of Love,
where they can live with hope and courage for the future.

Kindle in the hearts of each of us the true love of peace,
and guide with Your pure and peaceable wisdom 
those, who today are making decisions for these Refugees,  
that in peace and tranquility Your kingdom of Love and Peace may 
fill the earth with the spirit and energies of Your love.

We ask this in Your Name and in the name of all Peacemakers,
who love Peace and work for Peace in our troubled world of today.
