Week beginning 4 February

Living lightly

The earth is the LORD’s and all that is

in it, the world, and those who live in

it. Psalm 24:1

Give thanks for Christian Aid

partner the Association for Building

Communities (ACC), working to help

pastoralists in Angola to continue

their nomadic practices. Pray

that the Nyaneka community (the

woman pictured below is from this

community) in south-west Angola

continue to get access to the pasture

and water that they need.

In the last 15 years or so large areas of

fertile land have been stolen by a new

wealthy class of landowners, who are

often either connected to or part of

the government.

With help from ACC, communities in the

area worked together to fight the land

grabs. As a result certain illegal fences

have been taken down – Praise God!

God of heaven and earth,

protect those who live lightly

on the land.

Protect those who defend their rights

to be there.

Protect the earth from

greedy extraction.

Protect us from apathy and

complacency.

Amen.

the earth by joining the
