Prayers for Venezuela: Luke 15:1-3, 11b-32
Holy One, we give thanks for the many years of ecumenical partnership with the Evangelical Pentecostal Church of Venezuela. We pray for the new Center for Theological Studies of Venezuela that just started its programs in different regions of the country in 2010. We pray especially for Rev. Elida Quevedo, the director of this Center, guide her with the vision to help new teachers in their training in the coming weeks. We also pray for the new Council of Bishops and their role as advisors, counselors and overseers. Be a source of hope for the people of Venezuela when a drought devastes the country, farmers cry for water and relief, and the population feels frustrated and weakened. This we pray in Jesus Christ, the son of the living God. Amen.
