Prayers of gratitude and intercession

December 2017: National elections provide opportunity for leadership change, but can also be occasions for unrest and violence if it does not seem that a fair process has been followed. Both Kenya and Honduras recently erupted in civil unrest in the aftermath of presidential elections that were not perceived to be fair. Pray that the Mennonite churches – MWC members Iglesia Evangélica Menonita Hondureña, Organización Cristiana Amor Viviente, and Kenya Mennonite Church, as well as others in Honduras and Kenya – would be wise in discerning how to respect national process while standing for justice. Read more.

December 2017: Praise God for the fulfilment of promises: "A shoot shall come out from the stump of Jesse" (Isaiah 11:1), a child born to bring peace to every heart that receives him. In this season of rejoicing and memory, we pray peace for our brothers and sisters around the world suffering from violence and disasters, and for the transformation of hearts to worship the Prince of Peace. Click here for a Christmas greeting from MWC.

Praise God for the testimony of God's good work among them (Rom 8:28) in spite of the economic and political struggles, as reported by MWC regional rep Pablo Stucky after a visit. Read more.
