For Our Brothers & Sisters in Sri Lanka
Following the horrific attacks on churches and hotels in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday, please use the following prayer as we stand by our brothers and sisters in Christ:
Heavenly Father, we pray for the families of those who died, we pray for the injured. We know that You grieve even more than we are able to over what has happened.
May the church members continue to find comfort in Your presence, Your sovereignty, and Your everlasting goodness and holiness despite the current evil in this world. May Your children find comfort in Your promise to return and rid evil from the world forever; we thank You that the sacrifice needed to have everlasting life with You in a world without evil has already been accomplished by Jesus on the cross.
Please comfort those who are grieving, give peace to those who are afraid, and grant healing to those recovering. We pray that You would strengthen the Christian community in Sri Lanka; may brothers and sisters in Christ support each other and not fear to meet.
We pray that more and more Sri Lankans would know Your love and spread Your Word. In Jesus Name, Amen.
