Pray for Guatemala on Sunday, September 7, 2008

Lectionary Text and Prayers for Guatemala: Matthew 18:15-20

God, we thank you for the group of “two or three” gathered in your name throughout the globe today. We are grateful that you hear our prayers and walk with us in our joys and struggles, whether we are many or few. We pray specifically for our brothers and sisters in Guatemala. We thank you for our partners’ commitment to uphold the dignity of indigenous peoples in this land. We thank for the programs of economic empowerment and development that are providing income and education for so many. We are grateful for delegations from the U.S. that have been able to visit regularly partners in Guatemala and build strong reciprocal relationships. We ask that you continue to show us how to recognize the presence of Jesus in our midst as we seek you in our prayers for one another. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
