Prayers for Peacemakers. 19 April 2017

In the last three months the government of the United States of
America bombed Yemen, Syria and Afghanistan. Tensions in the Middle East,
Russia, North Korea and around the world escalate rapidly. The numbers of killed
civilians grow everyday. We need to do something! 

Last weekend, the Christian community celebrated Easter: Jesus has
risen defeating death. Following the example of Jesus, let us arise and take
action for peace and to stop death. Let us support or take part in peacemaking
initiatives and organizations. Let us advocate for all who seek refuge from
bombs. Let us pray for all who suffer in the wars in Syria and other countries.
Let us pray for each one of us and that our creativity and strength would persist.

bombing hurts please stop

Galatians 6: 7-9

A person harvests whatever he plants: The person who sows through
human means will harvest decay from human means, but the person who sows in the
Spirit will harvest eternal life from the Spirit. Let’s not get tired of
doing what is good, for at the right time we will reap a harvest—if we do not
give up.
