The human suffering in Yemen is one of the gravest humanitarian crises in the world today.
After nearly four years of war, more than 14 million people are facing starvation and 85,000 children may have already died from extreme hunger since 2015. Following the desperate situation in Yemen, the international development faith agencies CAFOD, Christian Aid, Tearfund, World Vision and Islamic Relief are inviting us to pray for Yemen.
A prayer for Yemen
Giver of Life,
Who hears the cries from Yemen;
of mothers choosing between medicine or food,
of parents grieving children lost to starvation,
of those who have given up everything in hunger.
Hear our cries for hope, for change, for peace
In your mercy,
Break political deadlocks,
Soften hardened hearts,
Change closed minds,
Open unhearing ears.
Let people come before power
Let life be holy again
Let your justice and peace
Shape the nation of Yemen
And the lives of all people
