Lord, 
The plight of our Iraq 
is deep and the suffering of Christians
 is severe and frightening.
 Therefore, we ask you Lord
 to spare their lives, and to grant them patience, 
and courage to continue their witness of Christian values
 with trust and hope.
 Lord, peace is the foundation of life;
 Grant us the peace and stability that will enable us
 to live with each other without fear and anxiety,
 and with dignity and joy.

 Glory be to you forever.
