Pray with us

For Jesuits living in zones of war and conflict

Lord our God,
We come before you to pray for our brothers
who serve you at the frontiers of violence and war.


We place under your protection our companions
present in Syria and South Sudan,
Colombia and the Great Lakes region of Africa,
the Central African Republic, Afghanistan,
Ukraine, Iraq and so many other places.
Together with so many partners in their mission,
they share the consequences of war and violence
with millions of women, men and children.


Grant them your consolation. Be their strength.
You who are the Father of Peace, bring your peace to our world.
Let it grow in the hearts of world leaders.
Let it spread to the people of all parts of the world and of all beliefs.
Let your love lead our world.


Finally, we recall those injured or killed
while serving your mission in war zones.
They show in their bodies the passion that animates the Society.
May the living find comfort in the bread broken in the Eucharist,
and the departed enjoy the light of your face
in the Kingdom of your peace.


We ask you this through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.


Mary, Queen of Peace and Mother of the Society of Jesus, pray for us.
