GOVERNMENT & ECONOMY PRAYER: The Church’s meeting with the Belize PM Dean Barrow on the gender policy has been postponed again & again since July. Now it appears the main participants won’t be here to come together until late September. In the meantime BAEC is planning three nights of corporate prayer to take place just before the final set date of that meeting. It’s called Operation Stand in the Gap. It will happen in all six districts plus Belmopan. But that will only be the climax of our prayers. Till then let’s do what we’ve been exhorted to do, in Pastor Scott Stirm’s words: Join hands and worship and pray over the Belize PM, Chief Justice, and all our national leaders. Pray the fear of the Lord over and in their hearts. Continue doing this every time we gather until we hear from the Chief Justice!
And pray for BAEC & BCC leaders to speak in unity & divine authority that can’t be denied.
Tues. 29 July at 6:30 pm
