A Prayer for the Democratic Republic of Congo
loving parent of all,
comfort your children
displaced, wounded or orphaned
by conflict in Congo;
and give the people of that country
courage to seek enduring peace with justice and freedom,
that their children might grow up without fear;
for the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Adapted by Canon Ian Tarrant from a prayer in the 1998 Congo Swahili Prayer Book, written after the 1996-97 war.
