Prayers for Peacemakers, July 22, 2015

Give thanks that Medecins Sans Frontiers has
begun providing bus transportation for arriving refugees on the island of
Lesvos, so that they don’t need to walk the 70 km distance from arrival points
on the north coast to the registration centre in Mytiline.  Pray for CPT-Europe’s work with this summer
on Lesvos among the people who have risked incredibly dangerous journeys to
reach the island. More than 90 percent of the 77,000 people who have arrived on
the Greek islands in the first six months of 2015 are fleeing countries
experiencing war and conflict, principally Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq.

You would confound the plans of the poor, but the LORD is their refuge. Psalm 14:6
