Pray For Mexico

Over the last few weeks the news here in Mexico has been such that one does not want to actually listen to it.  However, one can hardly ignore it.  It flashes across the T.V. news,  the radio, is posted on FaceBook and is talked about over drinks.  I am not sure if you hear about the things happening here but Mexico is in deep need of many prayers. It is so dark that many are saying PRAY PRAY.  

A message was sent to my phone by more than one group asking that I set my phone alarm for 8 p.m. every night to remind me to take a moment to pray.  My alarm goes off nightly.  What am I to pray for?  The situations that are ongoing.  

The biggest issue getting the most press is the disappearance of 43 students in Ayotzinapa, Mexico.  But this might just be the event that has lit the fuse. Ongoing kidnappings, assassinations, and widespread corruption seem to have brought things to a boiling point. Accusations abound, demonstrations are rife with emotions, and parents are begging for answers to their missing children.  

The violence is everywhere and people are afraid and unsure where the answers lie.  But the Catholic church called its people to prayer, Evangelicals are praying, only God can bring peace.

So, we ask you to join us in praying for Mexico and about the unrest that is ongoing, creating fear amongst her people.  Join me at 8 p.m. every night or just add this request to your daily prayers.
