Prayer for Justice and Mercy for Nations and Peoples in Conflict

2007 BWA General Council Recommendation

We express concern for nations and peoples who are caught in a terrible circle of hatred, violence, injustice, and suffering, who live in fear in police states where terrorist acts and military incursions are regular events.

We further recognize that the oppression and depravities by one group leads to anger and violence by the other which is then escalated by the first.

We call for God’s people to pray for justice and mercy upon these troubled nations and peoples. We recommend that this issue be considered for further study and action by the BWA.
