Most Rev. Richard E. Pates, Bishop of Des Moines Chairman, Committee on International Justice and Peace has asked that this weekend, all parishes pray this special prayer written by Patriarch Sako, Head of the Chaldean Catholic Church. He asks us to continue to pray for peace in the Middle East, and encourages us to let our elected representatives know of our concern for Christians and other minorities who are in dire straits in Iraq, Syria, Egypt and other countries.
The plight of Iraq and the Middle East
is deep and the suffering of Christians is severe and frightening.
Therefore, we ask you Lord
to spare our lives, and to grant us patience,
and courage to continue our witness of Christian values with trust and hope.
Lord, peace is the foundation of life;
Grant us the peace and stability that will enable us to live with each other without fear and anxiety, and with dignity and joy.
Glory be to you forever.
† Louis Raphael I Sako
