Prayers for Peacemakers. 7 June 2017

More and
more people are becoming aware of the consequences of the industrialization of
our world. The pollution of the air, soil and water resources has increased
notably because of the so called development. Extremely dry seasons, prolonged
cold winters, numerous floods and landslides are just some examples of the
impact of the massive industrial production, global scale transportation and abuse
of natural resources. For this reason, the country representatives signed an
agreement to continue working for and supporting the development while
decreasing the pollution and the global warming. But we need to understand that
it’s the consumption and production of things that we perceive we need that
takes away or destroys what we all truly need: healthy and sufficient food and
water, clean air and respect for life.  

Let us pray
for our world, for clean air and water. Let us pray for those who struggle to
protect what is left and to regenerate what is lost. Let us pray for those who make
decisions that will impact not only our present but also our future and the future
of the life on Earth. Let us pray for each one of us to learn more, to care
more, and to do more. We all deserve a better planet and many of us bear responsibility
for the disasters that take place not only where we live but also in other
parts of the world. So help us God.

Say among the nations, “The LORD
reigns.” The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved; he will
judge the peoples with equity. Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
let the sea resound, and all that is in it; let the fields be jubilant, and
everything in them. Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy; they
will sing before the LORD, for he comes, he comes to judge the earth. He will
judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in his truth.

Privilege of movement

Basic freedom of movement in Palestine—walking to the grocery store, driving to visit family, or flying internationally—depends on your nationality, race, and religion. As a Palestinian, you are denied these rights as others in your country move freely.
