We pray for Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, South Sudan. For peaceful resolution of the rising tension with North Korea. For those fleeing their homes and taking risky journeys to seek refuge, that they may find food, shelter and safe places to live, and that before long all may be able to live in peace and security.
