A Prayer for Africa
Lord, rightful advocate of peace.
God of power and mercy, please destroy war, which results in a spiral of human suffering and the destruction of your bountiful creation.
Eliminate violence from our midst and wipe away the tears.
Hear the cries of many African people afflicted through the death of their loved ones. Hear the sighs of those who live in constant fear,
Hear the cries of many African mothers who suffer with hunger pains but still break their backs to feed their families,
Hear the cries of those who have been displaced and are facing hunger and scarcity.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour we pray.”
by Aneth Lwakatare World Council of Churches
