Peacemakers Global Prayer Mission has today sent out a Prayer Alert inviting pray-ers every where to join in Prayer for the city of Brussels and the victims of the recent terror attacks there.
“Our hearts and prayers goes out towards the people of Brussels at this time.” says Reverend Palmer, Facilitator for Peacemakers Prayer Patrols. “May the strong wind of Peace usher in a collective calm amidst the devastation of terror and fear. We issue forth love, comfort and healing to those who grieve and are hurting. Praying that there will be an overwhelming solidarity of support from the rest of humanity around the World, as they seek to rebuild and get on with living.”
Brussels is Belgium’s capital and home to the headquarters of the European Union
In January Belgium was on Block A, the first monthly list of 18 Countries scheduled to be prayed as part of PPP Global Prayer Mission. The Peacemakers Prayer Patrols were commissioned to invite pray-ers from every nation to join with them to pray for each of the 206 countries during 2016. They would do this in Blocks of 18 countries per month over the 12 month period.
“There were several Signups but there should have been much much more.” says the Rev. “I suppose if people really took the call seriously they would have been more alert to pray, to reach out, to watch. Prayer is a powerful force for good. When I was told about this act of injustice on Brussels this morning, the first though that crossed my mind was that this is an awful thing to happen, but how much more awful it might have been had we not prayed. We must not give in. We must not give up. We must continue to pray. We must be proactive in our prayers. We cannot wait for some tragedy happen support our neighbors in prayer. We must not wait for a specific event such as a Prayer Conference or a specific Day of Prayer. It must be a part of our awareness of our oneness in the Divine and each other. When will we see that separation is literally killing us. Whilst governments must do what they must to secure their borders and to create safe areas to live, work, and play and to travel without fear. We must pray for those who deliberately seek to steal, kill and destroy these freedoms. Pray LOVE, HOPE, PEACE against which no hatred nor weapons can stand.”
What do we learn from these sinful deeds, done to innocent bystanders taken by unawares? It is this, the the people who planned and executed these acts, did not love nor have regards for Life. Not their own, not the ones they cut down. And really tragically, not even God’s. There is only one Life not two nor three. Not black nor white. The life of God is one life. Life doth not seek to devour itself. It is one life, in all.
No one group or person has the monopoly on life.
Although it may seem difficult to do, the people of Brussels and the rest of the world must not give in to terror. We must seek to rise above the fear and hold our vibrations high. We must rally energies to unify on a common ground that everyone has the RIGHT TO LIVE. The Love for Life must become greater than money and possession, status etc. Most people grew up never valuing life over money and status. In fact most go through a whole 24 hr without ever becoming aware of the breath of life. Is it little wonder that Ego plagues the tortured soul that does not know it’s true worth, and therefore seek not only to destroy others, which blames and hates, and also plans to destroys itself.
In this Prayer alert for Brussels, Lets us pray then that love would seed every human heart, growing hope within each soul, until peace bud forth upon the earth everywhere .
The next set of 18 Countries (Block D) will be announced in April.
