Prayer from - and for - Zimbabwe

Lord God,
we give you thanks for sending your only Son to give us life.
In the midst of wealth we are crushed by poverty,
and while we are offered Christ-life in all its fullness,
we are surrounded by disease, death and destruction.
We are tempted to despair, and yet keep hoping,
knowing that you care.
At times we weep silent tears, and cry out with deep emotion.
We come to you, our only hope and refuge.
Thank you for the gift of laughter,
even when the going is tough.
With you, O Lord, we may be troubled but not destroyed.

By Rev. Farai Chirisa, Zimbabwe. www.ctal.org.uk/zimbabwe.htm

What Sunday service is around one hour long and consists of local news, prayers, singing, Sunday School for the kids, and the sermons are always interesting and topical. Following worship, coffee/tea and biscuits are available, as is a Fairtrade stall selling a great variety of goods (the chocolate is delicious!!)
