Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
Today, let us take a moment to pray for our brothers and sisters in Zimbabwe who are facing oppression and injustice. It is a difficult time for them, and we must lift them up in prayer as they face fear, anger, and a longing for justice.
In the face of oppression, it is easy to feel fear. Fear of what might happen, fear of the unknown, fear of not being able to provide for ourselves and our families. But let us remember that God is with us always, and He has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).
We must also acknowledge the anger that many Zimbabweans feel in the face of injustice. It is understandable to feel angry when we see innocent people suffering and being treated unfairly. But let us not give in to the temptation to lash out in anger. Instead, let us trust in the Lord and allow Him to be our avenger. As it says in Romans 12:19, “Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, ‘Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.'”
But as we trust in the Lord’s justice, we must also do our part to seek justice for our brothers and sisters. As it says in Proverbs 31:8-9, “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.”
Let us pray for Zimbabweans who are facing oppression, that they may find peace in the midst of their struggles, and that justice may prevail. May they feel the love and support of their fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, and may we be inspired to do our part in seeking justice and defending the rights of the oppressed.
In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
