Prayer Alert: 'Prayer for Peace' in BelfastTheresa Stone - 11 Dec 2012
At a place of recent violent protesting and unrest, Christians from all over Ireland will be gathering to pray for peace this Saturday. Will you join them in person or in prayer?
Brian Heasley, 24-7 Prayer GB National Director says: "Prayer will change the nation."
Alain Emerson, 24-7 Prayer Ireland says:
"Throughout, 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 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 co-operation 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 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."
This story of prayer reminds us that there is hope, amidst pain,
Lets pray for: peace, for leaders in the land and for the city of Belfast.
"She never was a fighter, until he lay down beside her, and gently whispered hope." Foy Vance
