Lord haver mercy on Syrians!
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

I was looking at news stories on Syria on the heart is also broken.  How sad.  The children...oh, those poor, poor children.  Just do a search on "children in Syria" and you will be floored by how many of them are dying.

May the Lord have mercy upon all those involved in conflict.

Have mercy on those who fight to survive, have mercy upon the Syrian Church, soften the hearts of those who wish to harm others.

...simply....Lord, have mercy.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

God have mercy on the Syrian Christians and the Alawite minorities.  May He grant Assad great strength to defend His Holy Church.

St. Isaac, pray for us.  :'(
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river

Lord have mercy on the people of Syria.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
