As we see escalating conflict between Iran and the United States following the killing of Iran’s top general Qassem Soleimani, let us pray that both governments exercise restraint and focus on a peaceful resolution; that they would “not merely look out for their own personal interests, but also for the interests of others” (Philippians 2:4).

The Spirit of Jesus empowers us to trust God in all areas of life so we become peacemakers who renounce violence, love our enemies, seek justice, and share our possessions with those in need.

Christmas card Isaiah 51“Listen to me, my people, and give heed to me, my nation; for a teaching will go out from me, and my justice for a light to the peoples. I will bring near my deliverance swiftly, my salvation has gone out and my arms will rule the peoples; the coastlands wait for me, and for my arm they hope” (Isaiah 51:4–5). Praise God for the salvation we find in Jesus, who crossed the barrier between God and people to show us how to live justly. This Christmas, may we share this good news across barriers with neighbours, friends, and family.

Unrest continues in Hong Kong. Pray for the MWC Deacons delegation who will visit in December. May the presence of the global Anabaptist family through these representatives be an encouragement to the Mennonite church in Hong Kong and a witness to the Prince of Peace.

Latin Americans long for peace in countries where conflict and suffering endures. Pray for Bolivia where a toppled president has left political uncertainty in his wake. Pray for Venezuelans who continue to suffer from economic and political crisis. Pray for the people of Colombia, Honduras, Guatemala, Haiti and Chile who are also experiencing political difficulties and violence. In the midst of national difficulties, may MWC member churches heed Jesus’ call for the churches to be one body together, valuing instead of demeaning our differences as expressions of the diversity God created.
