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
December 19, 2017 


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


Pray for the victims of a church bombing in the city of Quetta, where 9 people were killed and at least 50 injured. Pakistan’s Islamic State group affiliate has claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing on Sunday. Pray for strength and healing for the wounded. Pray for miraculous comfort for those who have lost loved ones.


Pray for all those affected by the severe economic crisis in Venezuela. Hyperinflation and food shortages have led to a massive hunger crisis. Infants and children have been especially victimized, with hundreds dying from severe malnutrition. Overrun hospitals have lacked the space and resources to treat the record number of malnourished children brought in, especially as the hospitals have not been able to access the needed medications.
