Palestine Projects

About CPT Palestine

CPT Palestine is a faith-based organization that supports Palestinian-led, nonviolent, grassroots resistance to the Israeli occupation and the unjust structures that uphold it.  By collaborating with local Palestinian and Israeli peacemakers and educating people in our home communities, we help create a space for justice and peace.

We maintain a project in the southern West Bank city of Hebron (Al-Khalil in Arabic).

Prayers for Peacemakers 6 September 2018  Palestine (Part II)

Please hold Palestinian children who live in the H2 Old City area of al-Khalil/Hebron in your hearts as they pursue their educational hopes and dreams for the new school year that began on August. Many Palestinian children have to pass through intimidating Israeli checkpoints on the way to and from school where they often face delays and Israeli Border Police sometimes search their bags.  In their first week of school many children have also been subjected to the presence of Israeli military vehicles and soldiers who lob sound grenades and tear gas near their schools. Every school morning the CPT Palestine team monitors checkpoints near several schools in the Old City where school children face such frustrating or traumatizing obstacles to receiving an education.

Pray for the people of the South Hebron Hills who have suffered from Israeli military home demolitions, Israeli settler attacks and soldier invasions of their villages during the last couple weeks.  Pray for a change in the hearts of the occupiers and for shepherds and farmers of the South Hebron Hills to find the strength to continue resisting.

Let us hold the Palestinian people in the light.

 

(Inspired by the Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi)

God, make us instruments of your justice,

Where there is a false and untenable peace

let us sow dissent;

Where there is injustice, fury;

Where there is oppression, hope;

Where there is false fluorescence, profound darkness;

Where there is social depression, life;
