Prayer for Peace in NI
CVM NI is joining various other Christian agencies and churches throughout Northern Ireland in response to the riots which have gutted so many of us in this nation.
For 2012 the Northern Ireland Tourist Board slogan has been 'NI 2012 our time our place'. As the body of Christ across the land throughout the last year we have witnessed many examples of the God's kingdom coming amongst us and we have recognised these words 'our time our place' as a prophetic statement and wake-up call for the church.
Unfortunately the events of the last week have been disturbing and disappointing to say the least and we really don't want the year to end like this! With the permission and cooperation of the police we have planned 'prayer for peace' at 8.30am on Saturday morning outside Belfast City Hall.
We are hoping to form a unbroken chain of people right around the City Hall who together will take 5 minutes to pray for our leaders, the city and ultimately for peace in our land. We also feel that this non-threatening and humble prayerful approach would be a wonderful show of church unity and a powerful declaration to the nation of the heart of Christ reflected through His body.
We would love as many people as possible to join us and form a wall of prayer around the City Hall!
It's time to draw a line in the sand.
