Prayers for East Africa

Recommended Posts

Most merciful and loving Father, who looks with such diligent compassion upon the hardships of your servants, we pray at this time for the people of East Africa.


In these hard days we pray that you would be alongside all who suffer from the effects of drought; comfort them in their distress and unthinkable suffering. Give them strength to endure the trials which they undertake each day, and give them love for one another so as to show forth your will in their lives despite the unimaginable struggles which mar their very existence. Particularly at this time we cast our thoughts to the children of the Horn of Africa who, through no fault of their own, are subject to a daily struggle for survival. Look with mercy upon the innocents of this world Lord and grant them the joy of your salvation.


As we beg humbly for your aid for others so we also give thanks for all that we have. When we curse the weather when it inconveniences us we pray that you would reprimand us for our ingratitude, grant us the grace to bless the rain when it falls upon us and think meekly of those in this world who die for want of that which we curse. All praise, honour and glory be to You, merciful Father, for the lives that we enjoy; and grant us always the empathy to cast our thoughts to those who suffer so much when the world tosses us such comparatively insignificant challenges.


All this we ask in the name of Your dear Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen
