When faced with a terrible unfolding situation like this, it can be difficult to know how to pray. Try these simple ideas:

1. Acknowledge God’s power

As humans, we can forget that ultimately, God has created the world and is not absent from it but all-powerful in it:

“The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it. The world and all who live in it.” – Psalm 24

2.Pray for God’s kingdom to come

The simplest prayer can be the most powerful:

“Your Kingdom Come,
Your Will be done,
On earth as in heaven”

3. Pray for individuals and communities

We’re called to pray for others in our world facing challenges and difficult situations: 

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people…” – 1 Timothy 2:1

4. Pray for those in power

Leaders across our world are humans, just like us, who need prayer:

“… for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way” – 1 Timothy 2:2-3

5. Pray for the church to continue to bring hope

As part of the global church, we are connected to our brothers and sisters in Christ that are scattered all over this world and we have a message of hope that can be shared far and wide, no matter what else is happening in our world:

 “…For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.” – 2 Corinthians 4:17-18
