Coronavirus

Pray in God’s mercy to make effective the strategies to flatten the curve across the world. Pray especially for those living in poverty, high density or unstable environments. Pray for production, rollout and effectiveness of vaccines around the world. Pray those in greatest need will be cared for generously and with priority by nations who have much. 

Tonga

Pray for our island neighbours cleaning up and rebuilding from the devastating tsunami. Pray too that as aid and help reaches them, they would be protected from an influx of covid.

Ethiopia

Pray for peace in the troubled and violent Tigray region. Pray for aid to reach those in desperate need. Where violence has been the only communication recently, pray for a miracle way forward to establish a meaningful dialogue and opportunity for reconciliation.

Pray for our federal government to grow in stewardship of our natural resources, to make policy which cares well for our lands even as it negotiates competing demands.

As we enjoy the beauty and adventure of this land, pray many would thirst for the Creator and Sustainer who made it all
