Prayer for Eastern Christians

FACE’s Prayer for Eastern Christians

Heavenly Father, we pray today for peace in the world, especially in the Middle East.
By your heavenly grace, strengthen the faith and hope of Eastern Christians.
May they be blessed with peace and prosperity in their lands.
And may we be inspired by their devotion and witness to the Gospel, by their love and compassion for all in their communities, and by their courage, endurance and self-sacrifice against oppression.
Through their charity, tolerance and friendship, bring peace and reconciliation to those troubled lands, where Christianity was born and first spread.
Through Christ our Lord.
