Prayers for Peacemakers 9 June 2021 Palestine

Our prayers are for a free Palestine.
Dozens of young people are in the street that is filled with smoke and tear gas. One person on the left holds a very large Palestinian flag. There are white stone buildings on the right, and festive lights strung above the street. There is a white car on the left in the foreground.
Palestinians take to the streets to protest the Israeli occupation

This week, we are praying for Palestinians who have been shot and injured by Israeli soldiers and shout out in pain from live ammunition, teargas, and rubber bullets. We pray for the people of Gaza who were injured by Israeli bombs but are unable to get proper healthcare as a result of the ongoing Israeli blockade. We pray for those who are arbitrarily detained, beaten, and arrested by Israeli forces for speaking out against apartheid and ethnic cleansing. We pray for the Palestinians in ‘48 [within the 1948 borders of so-called Israel] who are treated as second-class citizens by the Israeli government.

Our prayers are for a free Palestine.

Septermber Supper Fundraiser

Will you host a dinner party for CPT?

CPT really needs your support in raising $10k in September. Unfortunately, we are behind our financial targets and need your help. We want to dedicate the month of September to bringing people together around the dinner table. You can choose the date, who you invite and what you cook (though our teams have some great recipes prepared!) We’d love to hear if you’d be interested. 

There’s no commitment needed at this stage.
