Prayer & Action for Peace in
Jim McGinnis, inspired by
his new book
Please consider forwarding this prayer & action request to your networks.
To order the book, see below.
I have discovered this year the gift of putting the New York Times together
with my PRAYING FOR PEACE AROUND THE GLOBE book. I was brought to tears and
then prayer and action by an article earlier this week - "Third
Afghan Girls' School Experiences Sudden Illnesses."
Read the article
and then go to this prayer from "Praying for Peace in Afghanistan" (p. 84 in
the book) and the action suggestions that follow.
Jesus, Prince of Peace, bring the fullness of your peace to the people of
Afghanistan as they continue to struggle with poverty and war and all its
devastating consequences, especially for women and children. Touch the
hearts and minds of political leaders in the U.S., Afghanistan, and at the
United Nations to find alternatives to violence to end a war that continues
to drag on. Help us to be among the instruments of your peace in
Afghanistan and in our own families and communities.
Consider supporting the work of Women for
in Afghanistan. For deeper insight and inspiration, see the
"Annotated List of Films and Videos" on the
Praying for Peace website Consider the
advocacy and solidarity suggestions of
September 11th Families for
Peaceful Tomorrows and reaching out to wounded veterans through
Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America.
