Praying for Lebanon

Pastor, you may have heard about the fatal explosion in Beirut, Lebanon on Tuesday. According to media reports, more than 130 are dead, 5,000 injured and an estimated 300,000 have been made homeless. The impacts are unimaginable, coming on top of economic collapse last October and then COVID-19.

World Vision is on the ground responding with immediate support, including:

  • Food, household items, and hygiene supplies for thousands of families who are now homeless
  • Shelter support for those with damaged homes
  • Psychological support for children and families

Our heart breaks for the people of Lebanon, especially the many refugees living there who are already vulnerable. Our world has gone through so much this year, it’s hard to imagine yet another disaster.

But we have hope.

Through Christ we find peace that surpasses understanding, and the promise of the Kingdom of Heaven. He is near to the brokenhearted. Would you join us in prayer for:

  • Peace and safety for children, families, and World Vision staff in Lebanon
  • Comfort for those grieving the loss of loved ones
  • Increased access to food and shelter for vulnerable people

We are so grateful to partner with you in prayer. If your congregation and surrounding church community would like to help the most vulnerable impacted by this and other disasters, please give today. By giving, your church is delivering hope and practical help when disasters strike. Thank you for being the hands and feet of Jesus to those most vulnerable.

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. —Ephesians 6:18 (NIV)
