MIA Prayer Intention: People of Afghanistan
Mercy International Association joins in prayer and solidarity with the people of Afghanistan. We pray for the displaced that God will protect them on their journey. We pray for women that they find allies and advocates as they pave a new way forward. We pray for health care workers that they are filled with God's strength as they care for those with COVID in the midst of conflict. We pray for all those seeking dialogue that they may find wisdom in their words and the courage to authentically listen. May all those who seek comfort be consoled, and all those who seek peace be amplified. In the spirit of St. Francis we pray:
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me bring love. Where there is offense, let me bring pardon. Where there is discord, let me bring union.
