Bp. Gandiya circulates prayer for Diocese of Harare CPCA

Received today from the Rt. Rev. Chad Gandiya, Bishop of the Diocese of Harare, Church of the Province of Central Africa, is the following prayer for the diocese during the current and continuing government-sanctioned police harassment:

Prayer for Diocese of Harare CPCA

Almighty God, your son Jesus Christ suffered rejection, shame and death on the cross: Strengthen your people of the Anglican Diocese of Harare CPCA, who are suffering at the hands of the police and those who hate them.

Save them:

From hatred, anger and revenge when teargas is thrown at them and they are driven from their churches;

From bitterness when they are beaten, maimed and imprisoned for insisting on worshiping you in their churches;

From despair when they worship you in the scorching heat, rain or smelly gullies.

Give them grace and courage to hold on to the faith and not lose hope, through our only true liberator Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

+Chad Harare,  5 January 2010
