Pray with Puerto Rico, March 13, 2022
Lectionary Selection: Luke 13:31-35
Prayers for Puerto Rico
God, Creator of life, your overwhelming love and compassion is over Puerto Rico, its residents, and our partner in ministry, the Evangelical Seminary of Puerto Rico. As the people of Puerto Rico walk the streets claiming salary and retirement equality, justice, and a stop to the marginalization of the workforce, we ask for your guidance, mercy, and blessing to be present among those who walk and those that support their efforts. God gives us strength, patience, tolerance, and courage to gather those who walk and claim their rights. Guide us to protect them from harm as the hen gathers her chicks under her wings. Allow us to be the prophetic voice that claims justice and proclaim your gospel of freedom, justice, and equality. Not to be judgmental or rejecting those on the other side of the issue. But to be your servants and stewards of your mercy in times of distress. We ask you for your overwhelming blessing on this day, our Lord and Savior, amen.
Mission Moment from Puerto Rico
Every day, faculty and staff at the Evangelical Seminary of Puerto Rico engage in preparing the future leaders of the Christian church in Puerto Rico with the knowledge and skills to better serve in their missionary call. From the local parish pastoral duties to leading life-transforming ministries, the current and graduated students have used the acquired skills, knowledge, and visionary experience to not only preach the gospel but to live the gospel in action. The Evangelical Seminary of Puerto Rico’s mission partnership with Global Ministries of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the United Church of Christ has been visionary and missionary in transforming lives, developing leadership skills, and providing the essential tools for ministry. Your support of this mission partnership ensures this mission’s continued support. Mission partnerships transform words into living testimony of God’s mercy and compassion.
