  Epixel* for March 17, 2013


Thus says the LORD, who makes a way in the sea, a path in the mighty waters,
who brings out chariot and horse,
army and warrior;
they lie down, they cannot rise, they are extinguished,
quenched like a wick:
Do not remember the former things, or consider the things
of old.
I am about to do a new thing.                                    -Isaiah 43:16-19

Prayers for Peacemakers, March 13, 2013

Pray for all connected to grids of power, that we
may learn from the excluded, threatened and expelled how to overcome apathy,
indifference and collusion as powers and principalities target land, air, sea, life.
May we welcome, not dread, God’s new thing.
