Pray for Sri Lanka - facebook page

Since the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka, one journalist said, “I have spoken to many Sri Lankans of different faiths, from all walks of life, and they feel that the nation is capable of shrugging off this latest tragedy and moving forward.” The nation has survived a civil war that claimed more than 60,000 lives, a tsunami disaster that claimed 30,000 lives, and now religious tensions. The Church has been able to overcome ethnic divides as worshippers are both Tamils and Singhalese.

Pray for the Church to be peacemakers in the community (The Bible, John 15:18-21).
