prayer challenge

#prayfortheworld 

 

Join us in prayer for the top five conflict areas in the world.

 

Christians around the world again commemorate Jesus as the Prince of Peace. While injustice and violence abound in the world, God’s people are encouraged to “seek peace and pursue it” (Psalm 34:14). This prayer guide is offered by member organizations of EfP as a way to lift up the needs of people caught up in conflict and war. EfP members used the Global Peace Index, the Failed States Index, and other data on peace to identify the highest-conflict countries during the last year.

 

In addition to your prayers…

Join others praying for peace on Twitter by following #prayfortheworld and tweeting your own prayers using the same hashtag.
