Bombs Blast on Children's Bus in Baghdad
A group of Iraqi children were on their way home after attending First Communion lessons when their bus was caught in a series of bomb blasts. “It is simply a major miracle that nobody died or was more seriously injured,” said Andrew White, the vicar of the Anglican St George Church in Baghdad.
After spending two months in prison in the Aceh providence of Indonesia, Christian workers, Roy Tyson Kalbulan and Ribur Manulang, walked out of jail at 10 p.m., on July 30, 2012. Praise God!
Father, we grieve the violence and subsequent pain and death that Nigerian Christians have faced, and we ask for a divine intervention; that Your Spirit would touch those who have been affected and bring healing and restoration to their hearts and bodies, filling them also with Your Spirit of forgiveness toward those who have brought this hurt upon them. Father, we together give You all the praise and honor for sparing the children on the bus in Baghdad and for the release of the Indonesian prisoners Roy Kalbulan and Ribur Manulang. Thank you Jesus! And Father, for the youth in Palestine, we ask that they are given opportunities to fulfill their dreams as they live out their lives according to Your will. Lord Jesus, in this final week of Ramadan, strengthen your flock so that their lives bear witness to Your Holy Name, drawing those who do not yet know You into a saving grace found only through repentance and a relationship with You. Amen.
Praying with you,

Acts 21 Now they have been informed about you that you continually teach all the Jews who live among the Gentiles to turn back from and forsake Moses...Therefore do just what we tell you. With us are 4 men who have taken a vow upon themselves. Take these men and purify yourself along with them and pay their expenses [for a temple offering],...Thus everybody will know that there is no truth in what they have been told about you, but that you yourself walk in observance of the Law of Moses.
