PRAYER FOR THE IRAQI PEOPLE
the plight of our country
is deep and the suffering of the Christians
is heavy and frightening us,
therefore we ask you Lord
to assign our lives,
grant us patience and courage
to continue to witness our Christian values
with trust and hope.
Lord, peace is base of any life;
give us peace and stability
to live with each other without fear, anxiety,
with dignity and joy, glory to you forever.
Msgr. Louis Raphael I Sako
[Chaldean Catholic Patriarch]
