Call to prayer as Parliament is recalled over air strikes
A call to prayer as politicians gather in parliament to consider joining a coalition of those involved in air strikes on Iraq, by the Evangelical Alliance's director of prayer, Fred Drummond.
Lord we pray for wisdom, discernment and understanding.
We ask O God that whatever decisions are taken that they would ultimately lead to a safer and more peaceful world.
We pray for the Middle East. Have mercy on the people of that region.
Hear the cries of the innocent, have mercy on the weak.
That the poor and broken hearted may find consolation in you.
Raise up peacemakers, restore the refugee and bring hope to the hopeless.
Lord have mercy,
In Jesus name.
