’s Prayer Request

From the United Methodist Committee on Relief:

UMCOR is supporting local church relief and recovery efforts in Colorado after severe flooding raged across 17 counties in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains last week. Please continue to pray for flood-affected survivors as they begin the overwhelming job of cleanup. Intercede with Isaiah 43:1-3.

Pray, too, for the survivors of floods and landslides in Mexico. Residents of 24 of Mexico’s 31 states were affected when two fierce tropical storms pelted the country from the east and from the west last week. At least 110 people are known to have died, while another 68 remain missing and unaccounted for. UMCOR is responding with emergency grants.

And please pray for peace. In recent days, our world has witnessed horrific scenes of violence, from the siege of a Nairobi, Kenya, shopping mall, to the bombing of a church in Pakistan, to the shooting deaths in the Washington Navy Yard and in the Back of the Yards neighborhood in Chicago. At least 165 people died in total in the three events and many more were left hurt and traumatized. Please also add Israel and Palestine to your prayers for peace this week.
