Doakan para pendeta yang tetap setia melayani Tuhan walaupun banyak dari jemaatnya yang kehilangan pekerjaan dan tidak mampu lagi mendukung secara finansial. Bersyukur atas segala berkat yang tidak terduga yang mereka terima walaupun dalam masa kesukaran.

Bersyukur kepada Tuhan karena beberapa perusahaan mampu mengubah lini produksinya sehingga mampu membuat alat perlindungan diri dan cairan sanitasi tangan. Bersyukur juga untuk tenaga sukarela yang membantu menjahit masker dan menyiapkan bingkisan makanan bagi orang-orang yang tak mampu.

Doakan para keluarga yang kehilangan anggota keluarga yang mereka kasihi. Doakan juga untuk para pemimpin gereja yang membutuhkan suatu kemampuan khusus untuk tetap dapat menyelenggarakan ibadah penghiburan dan penguburan di masa jaga jarak ini.

Kita berdoa untuk mereka yang sedang menghadapi ancaman bahaya kelaparan karena kurangnya pasokan makanan, karena gagal panen dan akibat lain dari perubahan iklim yang membuat kurangya produksi bahan makanan yang dialami oleh banyak komunitas lokal. Semoga Tuhan terus menyediakan yang apa yang mereka butuhkan dan mereka yang berkelimpahan kiranya digerakan untuk berbagi bagi mereka yang berkekurangan, baik pada tingkat lokal, maupun internasional.

Kita teringat akan banyak orang, yaitu dokter, perawat, anggota keluarga dan sahabat yang saat ini  merawat orang-orang yang terkena COVID-19. Kita bersyukur akan pengorbanan mereka dan berdoa agar mereka tetap diberikan keamanan dan energi yang datang terus menerus. Semoga Tuhan Yang Bangkit, akan terus bersama-sama mereka saat mereka berada di samping ranjang pasien, di rumah sakit.

“For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ” (1 Corinthians 12:12). May the Spirit show us how to continue to be one body despite our physical separation at this time. May we continue top put our trust in Jesus Christ our hope.

Loving God, who walks alongside the neediest and the little ones of this world, we give many thanks for helping us to accompany our refugee and migrant brothers and sisters. We wish to assist them with bread, with comfort, with a willing and attentive ear and heart. We also desire a more just and humane world where we all have a place to be with dignity and joy. Thank you for your faithfulness; at no point has the oil run dry. Just as you did for the widow and the prophet, you have generously provided. We also thank you because we have felt your presence more closely, and we have become more aware of your being God with us.

Starting 23 February 2020, India has gone through reprehensible violence that has resulted in 45 deaths. Vested political interests and forces of hate have driven rioting on the streets, homes and mosques of the national capital.

We urge the global church to uphold the people of Delhi in prayer for peace and harmony to prevail and for violence to cease. Pray for families who have lost loved ones. Pray for congregations in the Delhi national capital region to open their hearts and facilities for the afflicted and to come to the aid of the helpless and distraught.

Pray for the authorities to ensure the rule of law and the security of vulnerable people of Delhi also for political parties to discipline members who make inflammatory remarks.

We are so thankful for the good rains that are covering the whole country of South Africa. They have come late for good crops in areas, but we are glad to get water. The countryside is good and green. We are very thankful. We do need our dams to fill up though.

Pray that MWC member churches would be open to the moving of the Holy Spirit. May our churches experience individual and corporate renewal. May our hearts turn away from the allure of individualism, toward the call of God to act interdependently as God’s shalom builders in our communities.

Thank you, God our Creator, who seeks to restore fallen humanity by calling us to faithful fellowship, worship, service and witness together. We worship you, Jesus, Son of God. Through your life, teachings, cross and resurrection, you showed us how to be faithful disciples, redeemed the world, and offer us eternal life. We call upon you, Holy Spirit, to empower us to trust God in all areas of life. May we become peacemakers who renounce violence, love our enemies, seek justice, and share our possessions with those in need.

As the world sees more extreme weather patterns due to climate change, Australia has been fighting widespread bushfires and some cities in Indonesia have suffered flooding from excessive rainfalls. In both countries, more than a dozen people have died and thousands more are displaced.

Mennonite World Conference calls brothers and sisters in Christ to pray for the calamities to be brought under control, for the displaced to soon return to their homes, and for protection for the response teams as they work to save others.

As stewards of God’s creation, let us also pray that governments will create more environmentally-conscious policies to mitigate further climate risks.

As a world-wide community of faith and life we transcend boundaries of nationality, race, class, gender and language. We seek to live in the world without conforming to the powers of evil, witnessing to God’s grace by serving others, caring for creation, and inviting all people to know Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord.

As we see escalating conflict between Iran and the United States following the killing of Iran’s top general Qassem Soleimani, let us pray that both governments exercise restraint and focus on a peaceful resolution; that they would “not merely look out for their own personal interests, but also for the interests of others” (Philippians 2:4).

The Spirit of Jesus empowers us to trust God in all areas of life so we become peacemakers who renounce violence, love our enemies, seek justice, and share our possessions with those in need.

Christmas card Isaiah 51 “हे मेरी प्रजा के लोगो, मेरी ओर ध्यान धरो; हे मेरे लोगो, कान लगाकर मेरी सुनो; क्योंकि मेरी ओर से व्यवस्था दी जाएगी, और मैं अपना नियम देश देश के लोगों की ज्योति होने के लिए स्थिर करूंगा। मेरा छुटकारा निकट है; मेरा उद्धार प्रगट हुआ है; मैं अपने भुजबल से देश देश के लोगों का न्याय करूंगा। द्वीप मेरी बाट जोहेंगे और मेरे भुजबल पर आशा रखेंगे” (यशायाह 51ः4-5)। यीशु में हमें मिलने वाले उद्धार के लिए परमेश्वर की स्तुति हो, जिसने परमेश्वर और लोगों के बीच की बाधा को पार किया ताकि हमें यह दिखाए कि किस प्रकार से न्याय का जीवन व्यतीत करना है। प्रभु हमारी सहायता करे कि इस क्रिसमस हम सारी बाधाओं को पार करते हुए, इस सुसमाचार को अपनी पड़ोसियों, मित्रों, और परिवार तक ले कर जाएं।
