Prayer for Cities Under Attack

In the last few days there have been terrorist attacks in Maiduguri, Ankara, Istanbul, Brussels.

People from all around the world and all traditions stand in solidarity with those places under attack.

Eternal God
hear the cries of your people
as we stand in solidarity
with those under attack.
Protect the innocent,
comfort the needy,
confound the wicked.
Give strength to the rescuers,
determination to peacemakers,
courage to law-enforcers,
strength to the weary.
