DR Congo Prayer Meeting

December 17 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

There is to be a special Prayer Initiative for the Democratic Republic of Congo to which everyone is very warmly welcome. Mothers’ Union in Oxford diocese has a special link with Kinshasa diocese and previously we had links with Boga and Aru dioceses.

DR Congo faces huge challenges at the moment: Presidential and legislative elections are due to take place on 23rd December, delayed from 2016; there is an outbreak of Ebola virus in North Kivu/Ituri provinces; devastating militia attacks continue in Beni Territory (in North Kivu) and elsewhere; around 4.5 million people are displaced from their homes and poverty is widespread. In this context Christian churches are reaching out with the Good News of Jesus Christ to provide extensive health and education services and seek to be agents for peace, reconciliation and transformation in their communities.

Verse of the Day

“When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born. ‘In Bethlehem in Judea,’ they replied, ‘for this is what the prophet has written: ‘“But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.”’” — Matthew 2:4-6 Listen to chapter Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984, 2011 by Biblica.
