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.

KOREA: Update on Jeju Island situation, request for prayers by The Frontiers

14 August 2011
I just wanted to update you shortly on the situation here in Jeju.  We arrived two days ago and have met many amazing, brave, and vibrant people.  Gangjeong is also filled with posters, signs, paints, sculpture, and art protesting the naval base.  There is a true community of peace here in the midst of this terrible conflict.

However, things are about to get bad soon.  Six hundred to seven hundred new riot police officers have arrived from Seoul.  This puts the total at as many as 1,600 riot police.  Most of them are not here now, but they are a twenty-minute drive away, probably preparing for their action.  They have brought with them three water cannon vehicles and other riot dispersal equipment. 

KOREA URGENT ACTION: Sign petitions, contact international community regarding construction of U.S./South Korean naval base on Jeju Island.

For background information on the struggle of people on Jeju Island to prevent a U.S./South Korean naval base from being constructed there, go to http://signon.org/sign/save-jeju-island-no-naval?source=c.url&r_by=362758Thanks and sign the petition.  Below is an update and request for further action.

Dear friend,
As you read this, 1,200 police in riot gear are descending upon Gangjeong village, the site of resistance to the US/ROK naval base; 500 are from the mainland peninsula and 700 from Jeju… ttp://signon.org/sign/save-jeju-island-no-naval?source=s.em.cr&r_by=367997
