So I recently read a blog that said if you want to pray for help for Syria, then pray to the old gods of Syria. I think that is an interesting idea. Who would know the people, their needs, their problems and the sources of dissension more accurately? Who would want healing and unity more? Send them the energy to help them heal their people. For non-polytheistic Pagans, who the gods of the region are may seem unimportant to you but think of it in terms of context. For hard polytheists, it would be important to know who the gods of Syria are. For soft polytheists, it may be important to know to who they are similar. Alternatively, ask your own divinities to relay your prayers/gifts/well-wishes to their Canaanite brethren.
