PRAYER FOR THE PEOPLE OF YEMEN

Please keep the people of the Yemen in your prayers as they are living in a desperate situation. Their suffering is one of the gravest humanitarian crises in the world today. After nearly 4 years of war, more than 14 million people are facing starvation and 85,000 children may have already died from extreme hunger since 2015. 

There is some hope in Yemen with a ceasefire brokered last month promising to restore the Hodeida Port and allow food and medicine in to Yemen.

 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!
