As we come to Easter Friday, let’s remember those countries where the dark shadow of conflict leaves many without a sense of the future. The death of Jesus on the cross was to bring the kingdom of light into the darkness of this world. As we remember him giving his life, and that terrible moment of death and separation from his Father, pray for the nations living with the crisis of conflict.
May the death of Jesus not be without meaning in the countries of Syria, Sudan, Egypt, LIbya, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan. Whatever country comes to your heart as you wait before God, pray for the momentous impact of the cross to break the powers of evil perpetuating violence in these lands.
