Prayer for Yemen

The Bishop of Exeter, The Rt Rev’d Robert Atwell, the Bishop of Plymouth, The Rt Rev’d Nick McKinnel and the Bishop of Crediton, The Rt Rev’d Jackie Searle are urging churches to pray for an end to the suffering of the people of Yemen this Sunday, as millions face the threat of starvation in the world’s worst humanitarian crisis today.

And so we pray…

A prayer for Yemen

Giver of Life,
Who hears the cries from Yemen;
of mothers choosing between medicine or food,
of parents grieving children lost to starvation,
of those who have given up everything in hunger.
Hear our cries for hope, for change, for peace
In your mercy,
Break political deadlocks,
Soften hardened hearts,
Change closed minds,
Open unhearing ears.
Let people come before power
Let life be holy again
Let your justice and peace
Shape the nation of Yemen
And the lives of all people


Amen
