5 Spiritual Prayers About World Issues

Lord, touch the lives of those who are hurting and open the minds of those around them.

Prayer for International Unrest

Almighty Father, whose will is to restore all things in your beloved Son, the King of all: govern the hearts and minds of those in authority, and bring the families of the nations, divided and torn apart by the ravages of sin, to be subject to his just and gentle rule; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer for Peace and Safety Amid Unrest

O God, who would fold both heaven and earth in a single peace, let the design of thy great love lighten upon the waste of our wraths and sorrows. Give peace to thy Church, peace among nations, peace in our dwellings, and peace in our hearts. Through thy Son our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

Prayer for Those Affected by Storms and Flooding

God of compassion, hear our prayers for those who are affected by storms and flooding: strengthen them in their hour of need, and grant them the courage to face the future, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Prayer for the Refugee Crisis

Heavenly Father, you are the source of all goodness, generosity, and love. We thank you for opening the hearts of many to those who are fleeing for their lives. Help us now to open our arms in welcome, and reach out our hands in support. That the desperate may find new hope, and lives torn apart be restored.

We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ your Son, our Lord, who fled persecution at His birth and at His last triumphed over death. Amen.

Prayer for the Homeless

God of compassion, your love for humanity was revealed in Jesus, whose earthly life began in the poverty of a stable and ended in the pain and isolation of the cross: we hold before you those who are homeless and cold especially in this bitter weather.

Draw near and comfort them in spirit and bless those who work to provide them with shelter, food, and friendship. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
