Pray for Cuba on Sunday, March 8, 2009

Lectionary Text and Prayers for Cuba: Mark 8:31-38

God, we thank you for your church in Cuba. We praise you for how the Cuban church has taken up the Cross and followed after Jesus through all these years of isolation and difficulty caused by the travel ban and embargo. We ask you to bless our partners in Cuba as they continue to walk faithfully after Christ in their various ministries. We pray for the end of the ban on travel to Cuba so that we might freely visit our brothers and sisters in Cuba and receive the gifts that they bring to the global church. We ask that legislation (H.R. 874 was introduced by Rep. Delahunt (D-MA) and Rep. Flake (R-AZ), along with seven original co-sponsors.  The Senate version, S. 428, was introduced by Senators Lugar (R-IN), Enzi (R-WY), and Dodd (D-CT).) that is now in Congress would be successful in paving the way for a more productive Cuban policy in our country. Amen

(Prayer by Bob Shebeck)
