Prayers for Peacemakers, May 18, 2016
Give thanks for the decision that Christian Peacemaker Teams
– Europe made to hold its convergence and public witness at the Eurovision song
contest in Malmö, Sweden three years ago last week. Out of that meeting arose its decision to
accompany and partner with refugees, immigrants, asylum seekers and their allies
on the Greek island of Lesvos.

|Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand; and we boast in our hope of sharing the glory of God.
And not only that, but we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance,
and endurance produces character, and character produces hope,
and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts
through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us. Romans 5:1-5
