Day of Prayer for Lucio Perez

Vicki Kemper

2/8/2019

Dear friends and colleagues in faith, Sacred scriptures are filled with stories of justice, liberation, and restoration. The exodus from Egypt to the Promised Land. Pharaoh’s defeat. The return to Jerusalem from exile, and to home and family from profligate living and rejection. We share stories of leaders who were imprisoned for their faith and how, after the fervent prayers of their communities, the dungeons shook, their chains fell off, and they were free to go. Hallelujah!   Lucio Perez, a ...

Andrea Ayvazian

12/5/2018
