    Bishop Donald Bolen is requesting prayers for persecuted Christian in Iraq, as Christians are driven from Mosul, a community that has had a Christian presence for some 1900 years.

    "Let us pray for the Christian community in Iraq, now under severe persecution and struggling to survive, and for our Chaldean community here in Saskatoon, that they may take courage, and that world leaders will take action in support of their peoples."

PRAYERS FOR PEACE – 

Lord have mercy and come to the aid of your children in South Sudan, gripped by the fear of destruction to their lives and property.   Free them from the threat of evil and give them peace and security by bringing the war and violence to an end.   We pray to the Lord.

Lord God, touch the hearts of the political and military leaders in South Sudan so that in humility they may seek true repentance for the injustices they have committed.  Remove the spirit of greed and avarice from the hearts of these leaders.  We also pray for the victims of war so that they may forgive the perpetrators of these violations of human rights, so that they may not seek revenge but promote reconciliation and healing.  We pray to the Lord.

God Almighty Father, give courage and hope to the leaders of the church in countries experiencing violence and war.  Strengthen them in their prophetic ministry to be a beacon of light and peace for the people.  Make them the living example of faith in this time of adversity.  Equip them with wisdom to console their brothers and sisters who are victims of violence and death.  We pray to the Lord.

Lord God, you are the source of all authority and power.  Turn the hearts of leaders to serve the cause of peace, listening to the pleading of the innocent people dying in Palestine and Israel, South Sudan, Nigeria, Ukraine, Pakistan, and other parts of the world.  May they feel the pain of these innocent victims so that they will use their influence to bring peace.  We pray to the Lord.

We pray that the Holy Spirit will inspire Canadians and the international community to protect all those affected or threatened by violence in the Middle East, in Africa, and throughout the world, to be with them in solidarity and concern, and to offer them assistance and aid.  We pray to the Lord.

At this time of strife in many parts of the world, let us pray for persecuted Christians, in Iraq, Pakistan, Northern Nigeria, North Korea, and many other parts of the world. For courage and perseverance for those under persecution, and for diplomatic intervention so that Christians and those of other religions might be free to practice their faiths.  We pray to the Lord.
