Prayers for Peacemakers September 28, 2016

Pray for the people of Grassy Narrows.  A recently published report by Japanese
scientists noted that almost everyone they tested in the community, young and
old were showing some sign of mercury poisoning.  Additionally, Health Canada is withholding
the results of blood tests they performed on newborns in Grassy Narrows for
mercury poisoning between 1978 and 1992. 
Pray that those with the power to address this environmental racism will
find it unacceptable. 

*Epixel for Peacemakers  October 2, 2016 

O LORD, how long shall I cry for help, and you will not listen?

Or cry to you “Violence!” and you will not save?

Why do you make me see wrong-doing and look at trouble? Destruction and violence are before me; 

strife and contention arise.

So the law becomes slack and justice never prevails. The wicked surround the righteous–

 therefore judgment comes forth perverted. Hakkakuk 1:2-4

 readings.

I have never seen a more hopeful future than I have in the way that Palestinians in Gaza have cared for one another and have shown us what humanity is.
