PLEASE … pray for the people of Zimbabwe

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells.  God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts. The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Come and see the works of the LORD, the desolations he has brought on the earth.  He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth; he breaks the bow and shatters the spear, he burns the shields with fire. “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”  The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.

I received this email yesterday – it truly ‘hurts’ me to think that we can be so ‘inhuman’ to each other …

Dear All, I have just spoken to ***** and it really is a miracle that they are alive… Its been a terrible ordeal… They do need your prayers… ***, ****’s Dad has been severely beaten round the head… **** says his head is huge.. He has had all his finger broken.. He is still concussed and is vomiting.. ****, ****‘s Mum.. has a broken arm.. they wanted her rings and were going to cut her fingers off because they couldn’t get them off… she told them if they got some soap and water they could take them.

****’s eye looks very bad.. he has been beaten round the head. They all have had their feet beaten badly… and kept having freezing water poured over them… They were all on the ground tied up so tightly that **** couldn’t feel his hands… and a chap had a revolver to their head and said he was going to kill them….

Then suddenly they were taken to the vehicle – thrown in the back and taken about 30 minutes. to ****… where they were thrown out on a side street.

With no shoes… very little clothing and they were all freezing cold as well. **** managed to walk to someones house and phoned. They are right now in the **** hospital and someone has found drips for them… (whole sentance removed as too sensitive) Please pray particularly for **** – he’s in a very bad way. **** and ****’s little pick up truck which they bought last year has about 40 bullets through it… and all the tyres are slashed… its been left on the road near ****…

**** got away with the children in a tiny little car which is about 25 years old.. and was hardly ever used… It worked.

**** is sure that it was when they were praising God – that the man with the revolver suddenly chucked them into the back of the truck and they weren’t killed. The war veterans said they are now going to their house… We believe that everything will be trashed or taken…and all those wonderful workers… what will happen to them…

Please hold them in your prayers tonight and in the coming days… as they face the enormity of what has happened

Be Still and Know that I am God… He is our Refuge and our Streghth… Our help in times of trouble… Psalm 46
