Due to the desperate situation in Yemen, the international development faith agencies CAFOD, Christian Aid, Tearfund, World Vision and Islamic Relief are inviting supporters 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. Amen.
