Prayers for Peacemakers, 8 October 2019 Palestine


Soldiers standing doorway of Beit Kahil family home

Please pray for justice and peace in Al-Khalil/Hebron. Hold the Palestinian people before God for healing and comfort.  The Israeli military occupation is a form of psychological terror and the toll it takes on Palestinians is staggering.

Pray for members of the Atafra/Zahur family in Beit Kahil near Hebron who have suffered home raids with police dogs in the middle of the night, the arbitrary arrest of 14 family members, and threats of home demolition. Their children are experiencing nightmares and trauma-induced incontinence as a result of the home invasions. Israeli authorities are denying permits to other village residents that allow them to cross into Israel, causing financial hardship.

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.
