Prayers for Peacemakers,
October 19, 2016

Pray for the young men of Hebron, Palestine who wish to
worship in the Ibrahimi Mosque on Friday. 
The Israeli military has banned men between the ages of fifteen and
thirty-five from attending Friday noon prayers.

He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and
 regarded others with contempt:

“Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.
The Pharisee, standing by himself, was praying thus, ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people:
thieves, rogues, adulterers, or even like this tax collector.

I fast twice a week; I give a tenth of all my income.’
But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even look up to heaven, but was beating his breast
 and saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’

I tell you, this man went down to his home justified rather than the other;
 for all who exalt themselves will be humbled, but all who humble themselves will be exalted.” Luke 18:9-14
