How Should we Pray for Syria through Lent?

It is important that prayer comes from within and is true to all that we are and all we hold Spirit to be – and so these are simply suggestions, ways you might consider growing your prayer journey over the next forty days….

Choose one set time of day when you will pray (remember you can pray anywhere and in any form you choose, silent or spoken)

Hold a vision of the people of Syria as unique individual souls

Imagine how things are right now, both good and bad

Hold a vision of how things will be, transformed by the power of loving prayer
