Churches of Christ have historically had a strong connection to Zimbabwe. Whilst we may feel personally helpless to stop the slide of Zimbabwe into anarchy, we do, however, know the power of united prayer. Churches of Christ National Council and Global Mission Partners (GMP) are urging our churches to use these background and prayer point documents to pray for Zimbabwe in the week of Monday, June 16th - Sunday, June 22nd. We are encouraging each of our churches to set aside time in their services on that Sunday to publicly pray for the people of this beleaguered nation. That Sunday will be the one that precedes the controversial presidential election in Zimbabwe on June 27th.
