Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!
2 Corinthians 9.5

Today we pray for the Anglican Alliance for Development, Relief and Advocacy. We remember especially –

  • The Rev Rachael Carnegie and the Rev Andy Bowerman, Co-Executive Directors
  • Tagolyn Kabekabe, Facilitator for the Pacific
  • the Anglican Alliance’s Agents of Change distance learning programme which equips global Anglicans on the frontline of community development with skills and knowledge to facilitate development activities in their local community
  • all those communities helped by the Anglican Alliance this year

Lord Jesus Christ, Indescribable Gift to us from the Father, we praise you for the work of the Anglican Alliance for Development, Relief and Advocacy. We pray especially for their work in helping the Church to make preparations for disasters, so that when difficult times come, people can be helped quickly. May the Alliance’s trust in you shine out so that you may be glorified in good times and in bad. This we ask through you who, with the Father and the Spirit, are with us now and for ever. Amen.

A shared Christian faith underpins the unity of the Churches and agencies that come together in the Anglican Alliance to work for a world free of poverty, inequality, conflict and injustice. The Alliance’s vision is grounded in and shaped by our common understanding of God’s holistic mission and special concern for the poor. Those involved, including ABM, believe that we are all part of one global community, one creation in God’s image. We believe that the destruction of human dignity through poverty and powerlessness is damaging to the whole of creation. Rooted in this belief is our long tradition
of giving and service.
