A Prayer for Pakistan

Following the terrible bomb attack on All Saints, Peshawar, part of our Partner Church, the Church of Pakistan, please remember the Bishop of Peshawar, Humphrey Peters, and the Moderator, Sammy Azariah, and all the Christians of that country. Pray not least for those who despite the teaching of their faith have both espoused violence against the innocent and committed suicide.

 

Loving God,

You care for all of this world that you have made and will not give up your compassion for its people.

We pray that you will bring your comfort to the Christians in Pakistan

and that peace which passes our understanding to the people of Peshawar;

Let the men of violence return to the true teaching of their faith and

let the victims of violence rest in the assurance of your love.

We ask your blessing on the congregation of All Saints

and your healing for those who have lost their children and those who now lie injured.

We ask this in the assurance of your merciful and compassionate name.

Amen.
