Dear praying friend“It is good to be in a family where your voice is heard,” says one Prayer Network subscriber. We invite you to lift up your hearts to God with us, standing in solidarity with each other and taking encouragement from the Spirit of God that unites us in the body of Christ. In our prayers, we support each other in joy and pain, whether gathered or scattered. We give thanks for sisters and brothers who come together to pray for our global Anabaptist family through these emails of the Prayer Network.
See below for information on a live global prayer meeting on Zoom.
Hear, O LORD, when I cry aloud, be gracious to me and answer me!“Come,” my heart says, “Seek his face!”Your face, LORD, do I seek.Do not hide your face from me.Do not turn your servant away in anger, you who have been my help.Do not cast me off, do not forsake me, O God of my salvation!Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage;wait for the LORD!Psalm 27:7-8, 14
n the midst of conflict, we continue to suffer from the pandemic. Heal our world from the manifold impacts of COVID-19 – physical, emotional, social, economic, and political. Strengthen us with your irresistible strength so that we do your will and make your light of truth shine here on earth. Make us all instruments of your peace and your righteousness. Equip us with all that is necessary to serve our fellows’ human beings. Bless all with your peace so that we can work together, hand in hand, for a more free and just society, to your praise and glory.—liturgy for Ash Wednesday ecumenical prayer service for Ukraine
