The Free Churches Group is encouraging congregations to pray for Syria, especially during the current peace talks in Geneva. It has circulated the following prayer, written by the Presbyterian Church of the USA.

A prayer for our partners and the people of Syria

God of history,
Spirit of wisdom and grace,
we pray for all who are working for peace
in the tangled conflict of Syria today.
May all of us be strengthened by the hope
of a future built on love and justice for all,
reconciliation through truthful dialogue,
new life through patient diplomacy,
and courageous peacemaking.
In the hope of Christ we pray.
