Praying for Bishops

From The Anglican Cycle of Prayer

Monday 29-Oct-2007
Psalm: 131 Lk 12:35-48
Toungoo - (Myanmar) The Rt Revd Saw John Wilme

I don't know why the ACofP uses the the name chosen by the oppressive military regime and not the name that was used by the last democratically chosen government - Burma, but anyhoo, if any bishops need our prayers it is the ones in Myanmar Burma.

AnglicanCommunion.org has the following prayer on their main page today:
Loving and protecting God
you sent your Son to enable all to be free.
We hold before you the people of Myanmar.
Support those in that land who struggle for justice, for freedom from fear and for their nation's health.
Help your Church throughout all the world
To hear the voices of those who are suffering.
And do not let us stand aside. Amen.
And speaking of bishops - today is the birthday of the Rt. Rev. James Stanton, Bishop of Dallas.
