International Justice Mission's Global Prayer Gathering in Vienna, VA, April 28-30

The LORD replies, "I have seen violence done to the helpless, and I have heard the groans of the poor. Now I will rise up to rescue them, as they have longed for me to do." (Ps.12:5)

 

As the Lord our God rises up to rescue the oppressed, our God calls upon us to be his instruments. Join IJM staff from around the world for the fourth annual Global Prayer Gathering. Hear victims themselves describe their stories of God's rescue; hear from the Word of God as it calls us to love and to seek justice; and join with other believers to pray. With persistence, perseverance, and strident hope, together we will come before God, the One who loves justice and rises up against injustice. Together our faith will be encouraged and the world will be changed as we seek the God who brings blazing light into the deepest darkness where oppression occurs.
