Collective prayer: Justice and love will prevail over the ISA
About a hundred people turned up for the Mass to pray for ISA detainees this evening at the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Pulau Tikus, Penang. It is the latest in a series of Wednesday ISA services that is likely to continue until the ISA is repealed.
Parish priest Fr Marshall Fernandez pointed out that prayer is a powerful means of advancing the kingdom of love and justice and peace. It was also important to have hope, he said.
He asked the congregation to focus their prayers on three areas: the ISA detainees and their families, Parliament and the Cabinet – the latter two so that there will be a change in the present oppressive situation.
God is deeply concerned about justice and he will listen to the pleadings and earnest prayer of his people especially when two or three are gathered in his name.
