Prayers for Peacemakers, 7
August 2013

Ask that God support the people of Hebron, who were
unable to celebrate fully one of their most important holidays, Laylat-al-Qadr, this year
at the Ibrahimi Mosque, even though it is one of the holidays for which the
Israeli military guarantees them access to the mosque.
