Prayers for Peacemakers, October 19, 2016
Pray for the young men of Hebron, Palestine who wish to worship in the Ibrahimi Mosque on Friday. The Israeli military has banned men between the ages of fifteen and thirty-five from attending Friday noon prayers.
Prayers for Peacemakers September 28, 2016
Pray for the people of Grassy Narrows. A recently published report by Japanese scientists noted that almost everyone they tested in the community, young and old were showing some sign of mercury poisoning. Additionally, Health Canada is withholding the results of blood tests they performed on newborns in Grassy Narrows for mercury poisoning between 1978 and 1992. Pray that those with the power to address this environmental racism will find it unacceptable.

Give thanks for the people currently undergoing training for Christian Peacemaker Teams in Europe. Pray for their endurance, good humour, energy and attentiveness. Pray that harmonious relationships and strength for the work to come arise from this month.
Prayers for Peacemakers, August 24, 2016 Indigenous Peoples' Solidarity
Pray for the 3,000 indigenous protectors of the land and water at encampments in North Dakota who are preventing the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. The North Dakota Homeland Security Director has cut off their access to drinking water today. Pray that the media will cover their courageous nonviolent witness and that people will respond to their call to stand in solidarity with them.
