Ministry Pray in thanksgiving for faithful clergy and others ministering Word and Sacraments in all parts of the Diocese.
Yemen: The congregation of Christ Church is currently not meeting due to the security situation in Aden. A functioning expatriate population has not yet re-materialised because of the instability, and threat of kidnapping. Please pray for the people of Yemen, and our staff at the Ras Morbat Eye Clinic.
We give thanks for wonderful relations with the people of Aden and government departments, which encourages the staff and promotes the work of the clinic in many ways.
We give thanks for the commitment and dedication of the staff members of the clinic. Their Christ-like compassion for the people they serve is a great testimony of God’s love for the poor and downtrodden.
As hope grows for a political settlement to end the civil war, there is anticipation of an influx of aid workers and other kinds of expatriate presence. We need wisdom and financial backing to prepare and restore the congregational aspect of our ministry in Aden.
The financial support for the work of the clinic is an ongoing struggle in many ways. Pray that the good news of this wonderful ministry may be more widely known and supported.
Continue praying for the people of Yemen in the catastrophe of the civil war. Basic infrastructure like water and electricity supply is meagre at best. The health system and education system are incapacitated. Covid is only one of many endemic health problems. The people of Yemen need our prayers.
Almighty God, we pray for your peace to be established in Yemen, in the hearts of the people and in the relationships between warring factions – that the work of Christ Church and the Ras Morbat Clinic will flourish and your love may be known to the people of Yemen.
