Prayer intentions for peoples of the world

 

On this page, prayer intentions for the peoples of the world will be published regularly. Each month, you can join in prayer with the intercessions of the brothers and young people in Taizé.

You can send prayer intentions to the brothers via this other page of the site.

January 2022 | Middle East

We pray to you for the peoples of the Middle East, especially for those who suffer from the violence in that part of the world. For the migrants, refugees and people who have been exiled, who have had to leave their countries. For the Christian Churches and the Middle East Council of Churches and for all those who work for unity.

February 2022 | Myanmar

We pray to you for the people of Myanmar, one year after the coup. For all those who have fled their villages, for the victims of violence. For those who are exposed to hunger and the consequences of the pandemic, or who do not have access to the care they need. For all those who are doing their utmost to seek a path of peace and justice.

March 2022 | Ukraine

Christ Jesus, as we stand in silence before you, we let this burning prayer rise up to you: may weapons cease to be fired on the land of Ukraine! Receive in your love those who are dying from violence and war, console the grieving families, show your presence to those who are in anguish or who have had to take the road of exodus. Support those who desire peace and who, in Ukraine, Russia, Belarus and elsewhere, are taking initiatives to stop the war.

South Africa

We pray for the people of South Africa who are suffering from the pandemic and its social and economic consequences. For all those who have lost their jobs and whose lives are plunged into great insecurity. For the victims of injustice and violence. For all those who are committed to serving the poor and seeking ways of justice and peace in the country.
