Pray for the people whose boat capsized off the coast of Dikili, close to the Greek island of Lesvos, on Monday November 13th.

In the early hours of Monday morning, a boat carrying 15 people sank in the Aegean Sea, while on its way to Lesvos. Two people managed to swim back to the shore to seek help, while three others were rescued as part of a search-and-rescue operation. The Turkish coast guard have recovered four bodies and are still searching for six missing people. We pray for those who lost their lives, we pray for the survivors, and we pray for their families and loved ones.
