Prayer for the People of Congo
Christ our Peace, our hearts are heavy with
grief as we hear of the sufferings of our
sisters and brothers in the Democratic
Republic of Congo who suffer again from
armed conflicts which destroy the peace,
safety and very existence of hundreds of
thousands of your children.
May our hearts and those of all involved in
these conflicts heed the words â€œno more
warâ€ and choose instead to work together
for a just society where all share in the
many gifts of nature and ethnic richness of
the Congolese nation.
Inspire and move our hearts and minds to
act for peace and justice, calling others to
be peacemakers and helpers in responding
to the needs of the people of Congo. We ask
this in your name and through your
befriending Spirit, Amen.
