Join in with the World Council of Churches Ecumenical Prayer Cycle, this week we pray for Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal
We are thankful for:
- the peoples of these nations – the diversity of their cultures, languages, and art, and their resilience
- the breath-taking beauty of these lands – the mountains in all their grandeur, overflowing rivers and green paddy fields
- all those who work for the churches and their institutions, especially in places where natural disasters strike
We pray for:
- efforts of governments and others to build up these nations’ economies
- those who have lost families and homes in earthquakes and other disasters as they struggle to rebuild their lives, homes and infrastructure
- those who contribute to religious harmony and advocate for the minority voice of Christians, especially amid religious and ethnic tensions
- religious and government leaders that they will make it possible for all peoples to live in justice with peace and harmony.
- these small nations which depend on other countries and are often threatened by interests of their bigger neighbours.
