MIA Prayer Intention: The People of Syria and Turkey

Mercy International continues to pray for the people of Turkey and Syria who have been impacted by devastating earthquakes. With Mercy and compassion, we keep all those affected in our thoughts and prayers and continue to seek ways the Mercy world can support their communities.

Together, we pray…

Incarnate God,

We ask you to help us respond compassionately to the needs of those suffering so greatly from the recent earthquakes. We ask your special blessing on those who are working to bring aid to the people who have survived the disaster, but whose lives are now so impacted by loss and grief. May all who are affected feel your warmth and strength, and may we each be inspired by You to act with generosity, compassion and in solidarity.
Amen.
