Prayers for Peacemakers, 22 June 2017

Last week, a
6.3 magnitude earthquake shook the Greek island of Lesbos and caused damages to
a village and many buildings on the island. The CPT team on Lesbos is safe.
However, the tremor cracked a wall of one of the meeting places for the refugee
and local communities that CPT’s partners worked hard to build.

An earthquake
is a terrifying experience that may bring time of contemplation about life and
conception of new perspectives. Let us pray for the safety and strength for the
CPT team on Lesbos that works hard to amplify voices of their partners. Let us
pray for the grass-roots movement of solidarity on Lesbos with those who seek
justice and peace. May their commitment inspire us to act.

Let us be
thankful for our lives because we could lose everything in just a few seconds.

Psalm 46:

God is our
refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.

Love and resistance

The past eight months have broken us, but I know we are still here because of the radical love that holds us together.
