A Prayer for Sri Lanka

A Prayer for Sri Lanka

We would like to share this prayer from The Venerable Jo Kelly-Moore, Archdeacon of Canterbury, in response to yesterday’s distressing events in Sri Lanka.
 
A Prayer for Sri Lanka
 
God of resurrection life
we pray for the people of Sri Lanka.
 
We commend to your eternal love
those who have been senselessly killed
as they gathered for Easter celebrations,
and we pray for those who mourn.
 
We pray for the many injured
and for all caring for them.
 
We proclaim the hope of the risen Christ
as we pray for peace,
peace for the people of Sri Lanka
and for all who are persecuted
because of their faith.
 
We pray for peace
among the nations of the world.
 
In the truth and hope of the risen Christ
transform all darkness to light,
all fear to trust,
and all hatred to love,
in the name of Jesus Christ,
our risen Saviour.  Amen.
