A Prayer from Christian Aid:
Pray with us:
Lord of justice and wisdom, in whom we place our hope, we place before you the crisis facing the country of Zimbabwe.
We pray for immediate aid, wise leadership and an end to injustice at this critical time, as disease and extreme food shortages threaten to grip the nation.
Compassionate God, we know of your special love for the poor. We pray for relief for those who suffer, and action from those who watch their suffering.
As we stand alongside the people of Zimbabwe in prayer, we passionately oppose the social injustice and oppression affecting that nation.
We know that your love extends further than we can ever ask or imagine and pray for your protection, healing and close presence there.
In Jesus name we pray.
