I will say of the Lord, ‘You are my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust’.
God of power and might we lift our brothers and sister in India to you.
We pray for your protection,
We pray for your provision,
We pray for the nations of earth to have compassion.
When people are in need, you are our refuge.
When people are scared, you are our refuge.
When people are mourning, you are our refuge.
Compassionate God, draw close to those who seek your refuge today.
Prayer points for India
In India, a second wave of Covid is having a devastating impact. Cases are rising at an alarming rate, with more than 350,000 new cases in just 24 hours, according to Reuters.
More than 200,000 lives have been lost to the pandemic in India. Across the country, hospitals are overrun and oxygen supplies are falling short of demand.
Please stand with us and pray for our sisters and brothers in India.
Pray for strength and courage for our sisters and brothers in India, in the most marginalised communities, to claim the support they are entitled to.
Pray for healthcare workers who risk their lives each day to heal and care for the sick with supplies that are running out, that they receive the medicines and equipment they need to give vital treatment.
Pray for Christian Aid’s partners, that their messages of protection may reach and help the most vulnerable people.
Pray for people across the world who rely on precarious work, that they may be sustained and not lose hope in times of scarcity.
