Prayers for Sri Lanka

Last April 21, Easter Sunday, was a time of rejoicing as we celebrated the victory of Jesus Christ over sin and death. The promise of our risen Lord is particularly sobering now against the backdrop of the recent bombings in Sri Lanka which took place that morning.

Our thoughts and sincere condolences go out to our GCI members, Christian brothers and sisters, and the whole nation as they mourn more than 300 people killed and 500 injured following the blasts in churches and hotels.

Let us pray for comfort in the depths of profound loss, peace in the midst of insecurity, and resilience in the midst of violence and fear. For those in our community who know people from Sri Lanka, I encourage you to reach out to them and be open to other ways we can help.

Psalm 46:1 tells us that God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in times of trouble. In the midst of painful circumstances, may this truth be made manifest in tender and personal ways, especially to those most affected by these attacks.

  1. Nos tambem em Angola mandamos os nossos sinceras condolencias aos irmaos lá na Srilanca, confirmando a palavra da biblia no salmo 46:1,«Deus e o nosso refugio..» só n, ele que devemos confiar

  2. We join the prayers of the many who are interceding through Jesus for the many affected by the inhuman brutality of terrorists whose hearts are dark and malicious. The international community (and Christians) must name and shame such actions. We stand together against terrorism. Not a day seems to go by when we do not hear about senseless crimes of violence. We also pray for comfort for the citizens in Charlotte as they deal with the tragic shootings and the loss of dear ones.

    The day will come when all will evil cease and the light of Jesus will then shine ever so brightly. May that day soon come!

    With love and concern,
