Father of all mercies, we cry out to you for the people of Syria, who continue to suffer so much. Please pour out your love and compassion on all who are hungry, hurting and without hope. Thank you that you love them with an everlasting love: please meet them at their point of need.
Lord, have mercy.

Lord Jesus, Prince of Peace, we pray that you will give wisdom to international leaders and politicians as they consider the way forward in Syria. We ask that their hearts will be in tune with yours, and that a path to lasting peace will be found.
Christ, have mercy.

Holy Spirit, comforter and encourager, thank you for the people who are working tirelessly to help all those affected by this conflict. Please protect them, bless the work of their hands and use them to help bring about a better society for the future.
Lord, have mercy.
