Prayerline-May-31-2016-01

INDIA

Please pray for small-land holding farmers, who are disproportionately impacted by changes in the climate. Pray for their families, communities and crops which make up their livelihoods, as they do their best to provide for their needs. India is still home to one-third of the world’s poorest people. The vast majority of the rural population lives below the poverty line, driving large numbers to migrate to cities in search of a better life. As communities abroad, may we remember the impact of our own actions upon the climate, environment, and community which have a huge impact on the lives of those across the globe. Please pray for relief from extreme heat as well, as many are dying due to heat stroke in the hottest months of the year in the country.
