Pray for Chile on Sunday May 23, 2010

Lectionary Text and Prayers for Chile: John 14:8-17

We want to see, Lord, not what the world sees or accepts, but the sights viewed from your love lens that filters out the disasters around us.  We love you, and we wish to obey.  We believe in the promised Counselor, and we seek the Spirit of truth.  Grant us eyes of faith to see your miracles in the midst of our fears. Grant us patience to detect your seeds growing fast as dandelions or slow as trees. Grant us hope that we might keep our eyes open to new dreams and so rebuild our lives on your vision of tomorrow.  Grant us joy as we watch your promises fulfilled.   We ask these things in the power of Christ’s name so that “the Son might bring glory to the Father.” Amen.

 (Prayer by Elena Huegel)

·  Please pray for the Pentecostal Church of Chile as it reaches out to all those who lost their homes and/or  in the February 27th earthquakes and tsunamis.

·  Please pray for the Shalom Center staff as they lead trauma healing and resilience activities and workshops and prepare secondary trauma/compassion fatigue retreats for members of the Pentecostal Church of Chile as well as people from the broader community.

·  Please pray for the government of Chile.  The earthquakes and tsunamis hit right before the new president came into office and the reconstruction needs are overwhelming.  As 2010 marks the bicentennial of Chile's independence, many of the special events that had been planned in celebration have been cancelled.

·  Please pray for all the volunteers who are making emergency housing, gathering food and clothing, and helping with clean up.

·  Please pray for the children of Chile, many of whom not only lost their homes but also their schools and medical centers.

Pray for India on Sunday May 16, 2010

Lectionary Text and Prayers for India: John 17:20-26

"May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me."  John 17:23

Living God,

We see but glimpses of complete unity in this fractured world – in moments of sacrifice and selflessness and love. 

In these moments we know that You are in us and we are One.

But Lord, our love is fragile and our loyalty is cheap.

By Grace, may we re-member our universal Source.

We pray:

-  For the strength, courage, and hope of people living with HIV.
-  For the understanding and support of those close to people living with HIV.
-  For the passion and work of all who fight against stigma and discrimination.
-  For the compassion and perseverance of all who care for and counsel people living with HIV
-  For the honesty and integrity of government HIV programs.
-  For healing of the hypocrisy which allows sex-trafficking to flourish and 50% of children to be sexually abused while banning sex-education in the schools.

Kingdom come!

May Your will be done,

Amen.

Pray for Hungary on Sunday April 25, 2010

Lectionary Text and Prayers for Hungary: John 10:22-30

Hear our prayer this day, for the numbers of your people who are in recovery from oppression brought about by powers opposed to You.  Help such congregations to overcome the malaise that is a sign of victimization.  May the Reformed Church of Hungary (and especially the third of them who remain marginalized just outside the borders of the country), know that they are a vital part of the global church. Amen.

  • The declining birth-rate in Hungary, true of many EU countries at this time, means that the national education office intends to close 2/3 of all higher education institutions, with particularly the religious colleges and universities feeling targeted.   Pray for the worth of the Church's presence in Hungary in higher education. 
  • Praise God for the present and future faithful, hopeful, Christian leaders who are not daunted by the many challenges they face. Strengthen them in their efforts to meld the several theologies being practiced in the Reformed Churches here in these days, so they can allow a genuine Christ-centered vitality to emerge from historic Church-ness.

(Prayer by Coralyn and Laslo Medyesy )

Global Ministries International Partner  in Hungary:

  • The Reformed Church in Hungary is, in terms of numbers, the largest denomination in Hungary, after the Roman Catholic Church. The existence of the Reformed Church in Hungary dates from this Debrecen Synod of 1567. At present the registered number of Reformed Hungarians world-wide is about three and a half million. Of these, some two million live in Hungary. In consequence of the dismemberment of Hungary after World War I, many congregations—even whole church districts in Transylvania—were separated from the church and placed beyond the borders of this country. These believers continue to live in their old homes, but in alien linguistic and religious surroundings. In the United States there are some 70 Hungarian Reformed congregations in two separate church bodies. The Reformed Church in Hungary maintains close fraternal relations with Hungarian coreligionists living abroad, whether in neighboring countries or dispersed throughout the world, partly through the World Federation of Hungarian Reformed Believers, and partly within the framework of the Consultative Synod of the Hungarian Reformed Church. Reformed believers amount to about 21% of the Hungarian population of ten million. 1200 congregations live in four Church Districts and 27 seniorates. http://www.reformatus.hu/

Global Ministries Missionaries in Hungary:

Coralyn and Laslo Medyesy are Global Ministries missionaries with the Reformed Church in Hungary, based in Budapest, Hungary. Coralyn is a Teacher of Social Work and Diakonia at the Nagy Koros School. Laslo serves as professor of theology in the Department of Theology of the Gaspar Karoli Reformed University in Budapest.

Pray for the Dominican Republic Sunday April 18, 2010

Lectionary Text and Prayers for the Dominican Republic: John 21:1-19

Lord we are grateful your enduring love and forgiveness that we recognize during Easter. We too are like Peter and deny you through our actions and sins, but we know that with you there is hope. We see that Peter was given a second chance and we know that we always have a second chance to follow you and the direction in which you guide us. Give us the strength you gave Peter to go out into the world and be your witness of love and forgiveness. Renew us, strengthen us, and guide us. Help us to demonstrate the hope that you have shown and to be the change you want to see in this world.

We ask for prayers and give thanksgiving:

·  For the Dominican Republic as they prepare to hold their congressional and local elections that they will start to elect leaders that are not corrupt but work toward improving the situations of the people, the education system and health care.

·  We lift up our partners that have been working double to assist and provide aid for their brothers and sisters of Haiti affected by the earthquake. We recognize that historically, the relationship between Haiti and the Dominican Republic has been negative and harmful. We are thankful that the churches and partners can be a guiding example of love and compassion to their neighbors during their time of need. We pray that they continue to be an example for improving those relationships as the DR faces the challenge of addressing the larger numbers of Haitian immigrants.

·  For Social Services of the Dominican Churches (SSID) and their Haitian-Dominican Dialogues and relief work to displaced peoples camps outside Port au Prince.

·  For the children of Caminante whom are marginalized, oppressed and neglected, that they may experience your strength, love and hope.

·  For the staff of Caminante in their education and prevention programs you will continue to guide and strengthen them in their work and ministry that they may continue to be examples of your love and hope.

Pray for Lesotho on Sunday, April 4, 2010

Prayer for Lesotho: John 20:1-18

Dear God,

Today we celebrate the risen Christ, our Lord and Savior.  As Mary Magadalene excitedly and joyfully shared her Good News of seeing the risen Lord, may our hearts rejoice within us as the Holy Spirit leads us along life's pathways where we may share and receive the Good News.   Today we also remember the pioneering missionary efforts of the French Protestants of the Paris Evangelical Missionary Society who brought the Gospel to Lesotho in 1833 and who founded the church with which we are partners today, the Lesotho Evangelical Church (LEC).   We give thanks for this partnership in mission which allows us to share the Good News together, to encourage one another in our faith and to work together in ministries of health and education.

We pray and give thanks for:

·  The newly elected leadership of the Lesotho Evangelical Church,  including the President, Rev. Masemene, and the Executive Secretary, Rev. Ramatlapeng.

·  The "Growing Nations – Farming God's Way" agriculture initiative of the LEC which seeks to improve agricultural methods, reduce poverty and protect the environment.

·   Inspired leadership in the LEC for meeting the challenge of the HIV/AIDS crisis facing the nation of Lesotho.

Pray for Timor Loro'sae on Sunday, March 28, 2010

Prayer for Timor Loro'sae (based on Luke 19: 28-40):

Gracious and loving God, we give thanks that you have called us into partnership with churches in Indonesia and Timor Loro'sae. Through many languages, cultures and landscapes, we are able to see the vast scope of your love and presence in the world. Yet in these places, we also see the struggles and suffering of many people you created and love. Lord, give us the courage and wisdom to "untie" that which is needed for us to participate in your kingly rule on earth as it is in heaven. This week as we read about Jesus' journey into Jerusalem on the back of a humble donkey, may we also pause to reflect on the meaning of kingship and leadership in your realm. Help us all to be humble servants in Christ's name, always looking first to the interests of those stuggling with illness and poverty in your world, especially our partners in villages throughout Indonesia and Timor Loro'sae. In Jesus name, Amen.

Pray for South Africa on Sunday, March 21, 2010

Prayer for South Africa:

Creator God, we give thanks for your marvelous creation displayed in South Africa.   We give thanks for the displays of scenery and wildlife, but more especially for our South African brothers and sisters in Christ.  We give you thanks, Lord, for in the midst of so much diversity, we see kindness, humility,  and love displayed towards others.  We lift up our Ecumenical partnerships as they  strive to work together bringing Unity to the Body of Christ.    We pray for the Bridgman Youth Centre, for the transition of staff, and the continued growth of programs, the lives of the children,  and support of the community for the centre.  Lord, we give you thanks for the time of excitement and preparation in South Africa as they prepare to host the Soccer World Cup, and pray Lord that this will be a time of economic growth for South Africa,  a country struggling with high crime rates, high unemployment rates, and poverty.  As the world prepares to come together in June, help this to be a unifying event, spreading across the African continent to the rest of your world.  During this Lenten season, let us not lose focus, like Judas, but look towards the Cross and our Love for Christ, as Martha did, and Celebrate the risen Lord in Unity.
