International Day of Prayer for Peace

 

On 21st September we observe the International Day of Prayer for Peace. Together for PEACE, Respect, safety and dignity for all goes this year’s message of the United Nation.

Christians remember the famous greetings of Jesus: PEACE BE WITH YOU. Yet also the Psalmist desired the city of Jerusalem be filled with peace and salvation from within and that its inhabitants should share in it, as expressed in a pilgrim song record in Psalm 122.

For newapostolic Christians, peace is harmony between God and mankind and between human beings among one another and is required in every area of human life. Peace is guaranteed in Jesus Christ and a fruit of the Holy Spirit.

Peace starts in our own heart. Let us pray for peace but also make an active contribution to it starting in our very own lives and environment.

Peace with God, with each other, Peace in community and with nature is not just wishful thinking but a task and the responsibility of us all

We pray for MH17
On board MH17 were also 4 members of the New Apostolic Church according to news on the websites of NAC Netherlands and NAC North Rhine-Westphalia.

The Chief Apostle comments in a message as follows:
"The misfortune hits me very hard! We have prayed yesterday evening for the victims in the circle of the Apostles here in Kigali / Rwanda, where I am currently visiting our faithful. My flight departed only minutes before the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 from Amsterdam. Maybe I have even met some of these people at the airport. I pray intensely for all the victims and their families and share the suffering of our brothers and sisters."

The New Apostolic Church Malaysia reaches out in thought and prayer to all mourning families. We join the international community to offer sympathy and condolences. May healing and forgiveness be brought about by the comfort of the Holy Spirit.
