Amidst raging violence in CAR, one Pastor from Bangui urged Christians to view the situation as Jesus would, and appealed to walk in His way by forgiving the militants. In a letter to his prayer supporters, the Pastor expressed deep regret over death of a rebel who tried to kill his team, saying that the militant’s soul was precious in God's sight. “I could not rejoice at the news, as his soul was too precious in God's sight,” he said.
Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.
Thanks be to You, our Lord Jesus Christ,

Most merciful Redeemer, Friend and Brother,
may we know You more clearly,
love You more dearly,
and follow You more nearly,
day by day.
