Pray for Honduras on Sunday, January 10, 2010

Lectionary Text and Prayers for Honduras: Luke 3:15-22

Loving God, help us to be as bold as John in proclaiming your Good News in the world today. Remind us constantly of our baptism and the promise of the Holy Spirit to act and speak in Jesus name. We come before you today and ask specifically that you may help heal the wounds in Honduras. Be with our partners as they proclaim your Good News during this difficult time.

Prayer Requests:

  •   The staff of the CCD, that they may continue striving towards sustainable development in Honduras.
  •   Understanding from both political parties struggling for power, and hurting many in the process.
  •   Safety, comfort, and healing for those effected by the human rights violations ranging.

(Prayer by Alan Dicken)
