Prayer for Fiji: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - May 22 (Day 143)

Today we continue with an island focus as we pray for Fiji. This group of islands has seen more than its share of political drama, with four coups in the past 25 years. Sadly, these coups are at least partly racially motivated, and the de facto state church has failed to condemn the racism. Fiji is a great place over which to pray Ephesians 2:14: For He Himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility. Please read pages 334-336.

My prayer for today: Lord Jesus, our peace, You died to bring us into oneness with You and each other. Ethnic hostility is contrary to the truth of the Gospel. We pray for You to bring the church leaders into alignment with Your Word in this area. Lord, we pray for the Indians who see the Gospel as being discredited by the actions of those who claim to know You. We pra for Fiji to have a spirit of freedom and equality, for repentance and true reconciliation. We pray for righteousness and justice to flow in Fiji. We lift up the churches to You and pray for strong discernment and authentic fruitfulness. We pray for Fiji to recapture the missions vision of the past and reach the world within its borders as well as those outside the island. Call many Fijian Christians to be missionaries, Lord. Let the church be a transformational influence on society. In Jesus' name, amen.
