Abba, Heavenly Father, give ear to my prayer.
Please aid, comfort, and preserve our brothers and sisters in Iraq and Syria. As they rebuild their lives and communities, give them the strength and courage to persevere through hardship knowing that their real home is with the LORD and that the trials of this life will produce endurance, character, and hope.
All this we pray in the name Jesus, our Saviour and Lord. Amen
