A Prayer for Lebanon


O Almighty God, Who in Thine infinite goodness

has sent Thine only-begotten Son into this world to open once more the gates of heaven,

and to teach us how to know, love and serve Thee, have mercy on Thy people Who dwell in Lebanon.

Grant to them the precious gift of faith, and unite them in the one true Church founded by Thy Divine Son; that, acknowledging her authority and obeying her voice, they may serve Thee, love Thee, and worship Thee

as Thou desirest in this world, and obtain for themselves everlasting happiness in the world to come.

Through the same Christ our Lord.
