CATHOLIC DIOCESE OF MAKURDI PRAYER FOR PEACE IN BENUE STATE

Oh God of all consolation you never abandon your children especially in this time of need. Long ago when your children cried out for help in Egypt you freed them from bondage. When surrounded by hostile nations in the Promised Land you again protected and secured them. We your children cry out for your help and protection in our moment of persecution and tribulation. We are weighed down by with violence and bloodshed that have engulfed out land. Our farms, houses and means of sustenance are all being destroyed. Our children no longer go to school and the sick have no one to attend to them. We have no one to turn to but you. Lord we pray for your mercy and compassion. Be our shelter and refuge. Give us good leaders. Protect our families and homes, our churches, villages and communities from invaders. Grant us patience, Love and forgiving hearts so that we will not seek vengeance. Restore the much needed security and peace in our hearts, our Families, our Diocese, our State and Country so that all your children will live in freedom, peace and happiness. We ask this through Christ our lord. Amen Our Lady Queen of peace, Pray for us(3x).
