Urgent Prayer request:

Violence feared in Tegucigalpa today

Please pray and sacrifice with me for the people of Honduras today (Monday). Mass demonstrations are expected in the capital city and throughout the country, and Zelaya has been inciting his followers to riot.

(Check the blog for a more detailed update.)

Our Lady Help of Christians, pray for us!

Zelaya has asked his supporters to take to the streets today (Monday) in what he says will be “peaceful” marches to commemorate the three-month anniversary of his removal from power. Since the zelayistas have proven themselves to be anything but peaceful, the Honduran government has issued a decree that temporarily limits certain civil liberties: unauthorized public gatherings have been outlawed, police have been given permission to make arrests without a warrant, and the pro-Zelaya television channel has been temporarily taken off the air.

Sounds to me like they’re doing what they can to keep the peace – but once again, the media have twisted the facts and focused all of their attention on the fact that Interim President Micheletti has issued a decree that infringes upon the essential civil rights of Honduran citizens.

Please pray with me… that God would spare the innocent people of Honduras and strengthen their faith, that He would give her leaders wisdom in these trying times, that He would convert the hearts of those who would resort to violence and forgive the sins of those who have turned away from Him.

“Arise, O Lord; O God, lift up your hand; forget not the poor! … O Lord, You will hear the desire of the meek; You will strengthen their heart, You will incline your ear to do justice…” (Psalm 10:12, 17-18)
