Blow the Trumpet: Global Day of Prayer 5

Prayer March 5, 2010

                                 Blow the Trumpet!
                         
A Call for Repentance and Prayer
                                                 
Joel 2 

Dear Friends 

Our focus this week is on Latin America and the Caribbean.  During the 20th Century, the Americas proved to be the most dynamic Christian continent.  Especially in Latin America the growth of the Evangelicals in the 20th century has been spectacular.  However there are certain “hot spots” that needs urgent prayer. 

·         The moral devastation caused by drug trafficking is corrupting all spheres of life and destroying the lives of millions of people. 
·         The unresolved issue of widespread poverty which was caused by economic progress that failed to filter down to the poor. Marxist guerrilla insurrections once plagued many countries but since 1990 these have reduced in number.  This still leaved many democratic governments fragile and economies struggling in many countries. 
·         Centuries of wrongs against the indigenous peoples have caused civil wars where protest and revolt came from the repressed e.g. Guatemala and Peru.

Let us join as the Body of Christ worldwide as we pray for the people of this diverse continent.
