A Prayer for Zimbabwe
We ask you to join us in solidarity and prayer for the people of Zimbabwe. As a Fellowship we are concerned about the recent outbreaks of violence in the nation. FoR colleagues have made contact with our sister branch in Zimbabwe, who have expressed a desire for us to unite together in prayer for peace.
The word of God says ‘faith without deeds is dead’, therefore our Chair of Trustees Richard Bickle has written a letter of advocacy to Harriet Baldwin MP Minister for International Development.
“Father God we pray for peace, security, stability and prosperity for the people of Zimbabwe
God we ask you to cease the violence and turmoil the nation is currently experiencing
We pray for an increase in strength and an enduring faith for your people in this challenging time
Jesus we ask that you continue to grace the government and decision makers with wisdom, love and compassion – that the decisions they make will bring about long lasting unity and peace
Lord hear our prayers, in your might name we pray
FoR promotes active nonviolence and love as the means to transform unjust political, economic and social structures. We are an ecumenical Christian organisation campaigning against war and its preparation. In our 103 years, we’ve racked up 6 Nobel Peace Prize winners, and are partners of the 2017 Laureate: the International Campaign to Ban Nuclear Weapons!
