A call to prayer from the streets of Venezuela

This week Venezuela woke up to the news of a civic and military uprising led by opposition leader Juan Guaido, recognized by over 50 countries as Venezuela’s legitimate interim president.  They called it Operation Liberty, a movement to remove the discredited president Nicolás Maduro from power.   Chaos and uncertainty spread through the streets of Caracas, with confrontations breaking out in various areas.

The government of Maduro claims to have put down the resistance and the final outcome remains uncertain.  But in the midst of the turmoil, Pastor Carlos Vielma, Vice President of the Union of Christian Churches of Venezuela, sent out an urgent plea for Christians everywhere to pray.
