More than 70 people, including at least 10 children, were killed in a chemical weapons attack in northern Syria on Tuesday. Hundreds have been injured. This is the deadliest chemical weapons attack the country has seen in years, and it comes in the same week international leaders are meeting for peace talks.
God of peace, we lift up our prayers to you once again for an end to the conflict in Syria. We pray for the vulnerable and desperate people there; come quickly to protect them. We pray that we might see you at work—through government officials, negotiations and peace talks, economic and political pressure—to bring peace in Syria.
