Sri Lanka: Special Prayer Day for Shiromi Edirisinghe

Prayer March 14, 2008


National Christian Evangelical Alliance of Sri Lanka

Mrs. Shiromi Edirisinghe (widow of the late Pastor Neil Edirisinghe) who sustained gun shot injuries in the attack that killed her husband on the 17th of February 2008 still remains in a critical condition. We thank God that she has regained consciousness. However, she is still unable to breath on her own.

We make this very urgent and special request to solicit the prayers of the entire Christian community for Shiromi. It is our humble request that you pray for Shiromi, by name, during your Church Sunday worship service on 16th March 2007.

We thank all of you who pray for her, their son and the Church and all those who have made numerous inquiries as to Shiromi's wellbeing.

Fund for Shiromi and son
Pastor Edirisinghe was pastor of an independent Church and as such his family has no means of income or support for their future. NCEASL has set up a fund to help Shiromi and their son. If anyone would like to contribute to this fund, please share this information with your Church and friends. Contributions can be made by cheque in favour of: 'Evangelical Alliance of Sri Lanka'. Please indicate (by covering letter) that it is for the Edirisinghe family.

Thank you for your prayers.
