Prayer for the Church in Iraq
Lord, hear our prayers
the needs of the Church,
especially for the people
for their plight is deep
and the suffering of Christians
is severe and frightening.
Therefore, we ask you, Lord,
to spare their lives,
and to grant them patience
their witness of Christian values
with trust and hope.
Lord, as peace is the foundation of life,
grant them the peace and stability
that will enable them to live
without fear and anxiety
but with dignity and joy.
Glory be to you, O God,
through Christ our Lord.
