Prayer request for peace in Palestine and Israel as the threat of annexation looms – Please pray for peace in Palestine and Israel in the coming days, when Israel’s government has announced it will begin annexing significant parts of the Palestinian territory of the West Bank. The Palestinian people, including Christian partners of Mennonite organizations, are concerned that this violation of international law will further deepen the dire human rights abuses, land expropriation, and economic injustice they have experienced under Israeli military occupation since 1967. Pray for Israelis, Palestinians and advocates around the world who are promoting a durable and just peace, with equal rights and dignity for Israelis and Palestinians alike, using what Palestinian Christians call “the logic of love.” –Mennonite Church Canada and MCM Palestine and Israel Network
“God of peace and justice, you have created all people in your image to serve both Creator and creation in love. We lift up the people of Israel and Palestine on the eve of the threatened annexation in the West Bank. May all recognize that the “earth is the Lord’s” (Psalm 24:1), and that the forced acquisition and use of the land by one people at the expense of another is far from your will. Strengthen and give courage to those who speak your truth to the powers of this world. Protect the weak and the dispossessed. May your people shine the light of your love and care for this troubled but “holy” land. In the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace, Amen.”
