A prayer for the tragic events in Turkey and Syria

God of time and space, we cry to you for your children – our neighbours – in southern Turkey and northern Syria, following the earthquake that has devastated hundreds of lives. Only they and you know what it is like to experience such trauma in the middle of the night.

We give thanks for the aid that is already being given and for the promises of help that have been made by many nations.

Comfort, we pray,
those who are trapped in collapsed buildings;
those who have lost loved ones;
those who wait for news and
those digging through rubble to save others.

Grant the gift of hope so that those caught between life and death know that you are with them and that others are ready to support them as they seek a future that overshadows the experiences of today.

We ask this in the Name of Jesus, who endured so much for love of them.


Prayer written by the President of the Conference, the Revd Graham Thompson.

Christian Aid has launched an appeal to help those affected by the earthquake in Turkey and Syria.

All We Can has partners in northern Syria and are accepting donations to help their work.
