Week 2 - The Local Church in Africa
Ask God to grow the influence of the church on their community, their country, and government. Corruption continues to hinder the poorest of the poor from having hope. Pray for corrupt government officials and those in power to have their hearts transformed by the work of the church, and the word of God.
We are not the healers, we are not the reconcilers, we are not the givers of life. We are sinful, broken, vulnerable people who need as much care as anyone we care for. The mystery of ministry is that we have been chosen to make our own limited and very conditional love the gateway for the unlimited and unconditional love of God. - Henri Nouwen
