Fifth anniversary of the ongoing conflict in Syria

The conflict in Syria has been going on since the Arab Spring uprisings of 2011. The conflict is now in its sixth year, with no end in sight. The situation has deteriorated into a humanitarian crisis on a global scale, has spilled into neighbouring countries and even European ones, and has become a threat to
international stability, due to its complex social, political, economic and religious dimensions.

Tearfund Ireland has been working through local partners with the aim of meeting the humanitarian needs of people affected by the conflict in Syria. Focus has been on: food assistance though cash, food parcels or vouchers; provision of essential non-food items (NFIs) such as cooking utensils, bedding etc.

Join us in praying for this ongoing conflict.

A prayer for peace in Syria

Almighty God, we pray that peace talks for Syria will take place without delay or hindrance. We ask that these talks will lead towards a stable and secure future for the Syrian people, in which they can rebuild their lives without fear. We pray for a time to come soon when the weapons of war will be exchanged for positive plans for restored and thriving communities. Please help those involved to do everything in their power to find a path to lasting peace. Amen.

South Sudan Crisis Prayer

We’re praying for peace to come quickly to South Sudan following the recent outbreak of violence there.

Please pray:

Our thoughts and prayers are with the many people who are fearing for their lives, and those who have left their homes or lost loved ones in the last few days because of the ethnic unrest and fighting.

South Sudan is one of the world’s poorest countries and there are many people who need our help. We have been providing clean water and safe sanitation, and helping people to grow food for their families and to sell to others.

Please pray for peace to come soon.

What you can do

Never has the church needed to gather together more urgently than today to pray – to call on God to come, to bring justice, to bring comfort and healing, and for us to actually not just offer up the prayer, but to become the prayer. Tim Hughes, musician.
