Three Prayer Concerns - May 9

In addition to the joys and concerns that are on your heart, the Presbyterian Ministry at the United Nations suggests prayers for:

Prayers for the people of Pakistan as they struggle for democracy in the midst of violence surrounding their elections. On Tuesday, a bombing killed 15 at a campaign rally in Northwest Pakistan

Sudan and South Sudan
Prayers for the people of Abyei who face escalating violence in the territory dispute between Sudan and South Sudan. The recent killing of Tribal Chief DengKoul Deng has left the situation in the region more unstable and uncertain than ever.

Prayers for the members of the Roman Catholic Church in the city of Arusha, Tanzania that was bombed on Tuesday, resulting in two deaths and dozens of injuries. Prayers for the community of Arusha as it grieves for its wounded and struggles to find a path forward in the midst of increasing conflict between Christians and Muslims in the area.

What prayers do you lift this day and this week?

Thanks to Teo Ufford-Chase for working on this post.
