Prayers for Peacemakers. 26 May 2017

Oftentimes,
we are not thankful for all the blessings in our life and we do not recognize
the privileges we have. When we are able to have a job, to have a legal status,
to feel safe and free, to be healthy or able-bodied, for example. When often
strongly realize and feel their lack but not so much their presence.

Today we
want to remember all these privileges and blessings. We would like to encourage
you to embrace the positive situations in our lives and share our love and
solidarity with people who do not experience the same. Let us pray for those of
us who are not physically or emotionally well. Let us pray for all who are
seeking meaningful jobs to be able to thrive and support our families and
communities. Let us pray for the undocumented people and those fleeing wars and
oppression to be given asylum and receive respect for their humanity and
rights. Let us pray for all who live in the midst of war to be able to find
strength to continue resist violence and death. Let us pray for and support
each other in our needs and difficulties so that we may find a path forward and
overcome what stands in our way.

Luke
17:20-21

One day the
Pharisees asked Jesus, “When will the Kingdom of God come?” Jesus
replied, “The Kingdom of God can’t be detected by visible signs. You
won’t be able to say, ‘Here it is!’ or ‘It’s over there!’ For the Kingdom of
God is already among you.”
