Prayers for Peacemakers, January 30
the people of Iraqi-Kurdistan and Palestine, this winter has been particularly
hard and there are thousands of people living in refugee tents under extreme
weather conditions. Pray for a more gentle weather for all of them. Pray also
for the Palestinian children in Al-Khalil, who returned to school last week.
During the month of December, the Israeli Army threw 172 tear gas bombs and 19
stun grenades to children while they were walking to school. The Israeli
occupation and its violence are threatening Palestinian children’s right to education.
Pray for these two nations.
