Church of the Brethren
Church of the Brethren's Global Mission and Service in action

"That is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us. So we are ambassadors for Christ, since God is making his appeal through us; we entreat you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.”
—2 Corinthians 5:19-20

Global Mission Prayer Guide
June 11, 2018

In the prayers for this week from Global Mission and Service Office, we lift up:

United States

Pray for the 32 junior high youth and advisors serving at a workcamp at Camp Harmony near Hooversville, Pa. Camp Harmony is the oldest Church of the Brethren camp. Workcampers are helping prepare for summer camp season by cleaning up trails and providing upkeep to cabins. Pray that the participants grow closer to God through time in both nature and service.

Democratic Republic of Congo

Ron Lubungo, pastor with Eglise des Freres au Congo (the Congolese Church of the Brethren), requests prayer for the political situation in the DRC. Tensions remain high as clergy and opposition leaders accuse President Joseph Kabila of seeking an illegal third term in office. Elections that should have replaced Kabila, who reached his constitutional two-term limit at the end of 2016, have been postponed twice. Since then, violent crackdowns against protesters have resulted in dozens of deaths. July 25 is seen as a key date, as it marks the period for candidates to file their applications for the December election.

Pray for peace and stability in this country scarred by years of civil war. Pray for a government built on justice and equality.

Dominican Republic

Pray for a workcamp of Brethren Revival Fellowship (BRF) members in the Dominican Republic. The group of 18 senior high youth and 4 advisors will work together with members of Iglesia de los Hermanos (the Dominican Church of the Brethren) to repair and paint the church building in the community of Las Yayas. Workcamp participants also will lead children’s vacation Bible school activities.

Pray for health and safety for all volunteers and for a time of relationship-building and mutual service.
