Universal: Doctors and their Collaborators in War Zones
God of Kindness,
that you contemplate your Son Jesus,
we feel called to be generous,
to put in first place the needs of our brothers and sisters
before our own comfort and safety.
Help us not to be indifferent and lazy
to perform the well that is within our reach.
We ask that your grace
will be the strength of doctors and the volunteer staff
that serve the victims of war.
Be their refuge in moments of discouragement and tiredness,
so that their example may be light in the midst of darkness.
