Resolution On Prayer For Release Of Hostages

WHREAS, There are many people being held hostage around the world in 1991: one now in his seventh year, another who recently celebrated his 60th birthday, and another taken hostage on a trip seeking release of other hostages; and

WHEREAS, Not only do the hostages suffer deprivation, but also their families and loved ones bear the agony of the loneliness and the pain of not knowing their loved ones’ condition; Now, therefore,

BE IT RESOLVED, That the messengers to the Southern Baptist Convention meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, June 4-6, 1991 be encouraged to pray for the release of the hostages, to pray for the captors to come to know the “peace that passeth all understanding,” and to pray for the families of the hostages.
