Prayers for Peacemakers 28 August 2019 Palestine

Please pray for the Palestinian people who have for generations lived in the Old City of Al-Khalil. Pray for their safety and wellbeing, especially when Israeli settlers come to assert their presence and take away their homes. Pray for the settlers that they may understand at least in part the wrongness of what they are doing.  Pray for God’s mercy and justice to be realized among all who live and work in Al-Khalil.
