Prayers for Phoenix Witnesses to Love

As we did on Pentecost Sunday, let's continue to pray for the community in and around Phoenix, AZ. In addition to the campaign against The Fountains UMC in nearby Fountain Hills, Phoenix has faced armed demonstrations outside a local mosque. Fortunately, hundreds of Christians and others – possibly as many as 1,000 people – turned out to stand with their Muslim neighbors against the tide of hatred. Please send our courageous sisters and brothers in Phoenix all the spiritual support we can muster as they witness to the power of God's Love! And may we take their example as our model if and when hatred arises here in the Dallas area.
