Each Thursday at noon in Jerusalem, Sabeel holds a Communion service that is open to the community. It is a time to join together to discuss how the scriptures apply to our lives today, to pray for the needs of this region and our world and to share the Eucharist. Starting in the Pacific Islands, passing through Asia, Africa, Palestine, Europe, the Americas and on around the globe, we pray for peace with justice.



Sabeel Wave of Prayer

Loving God, we pray for all Muslims of
the world who are celebrating the end feast of Ramadan, Eid al-Fitr, this week.  Lord, with so much violence and injustice in
the Middle East, some of these celebrations are burdened with heavy hearts and marred
with cries for justice.  God, you taught
us that all people are created in your image; please grant those suffering the
most a life of dignity that all human beings deserve.  Lord in your mercy



We continue to pray fervently for the
people of Gaza who, in front of the whole world, have suffered devastating
destruction and unimaginable loss of life, sometimes to entire families.  Lord, as the world awaits a cease-fire and
breathes relief with each humanitarian pause, the steadfast people of Gaza wait
for something more lasting.  We pray, merciful
God, that Israel ends the unrelenting, illegal siege on Gaza so that Gazans are
free to live, and hostilities never return to this area.  Lord in your mercy



God of grace, we thank you for the many
people who came last weekend for Sabeels prayer service in Nazareth for Gaza.
We also lift our gratitude for our Friends of Sabeel chapters around the world who
have organized, protested, and advocated this week to end the massive operation
on Gaza with unwavering commitment for peace and justice in Palestine and
Israel. Lord in your mercy



God of mercy, we pray for the safety of
the people of Palestinian neighborhoods in East Jerusalem who are experiencing
a new phenomenon of violence from Jewish settlers living in nearby illegal
Jewish settlements all of which is exacerbated by the lack of police
protection of these Palestinians.  Not
only do these violent incidents stir up fear and anger, they add to the difficulties
Palestinians experience living under occupation.  Lord in your mercy



God of mercy, we continue to pray for
the Christians in northern Iraq who are being asked to deny their faith in
order to live in their homeland and escape death.  We pray that governments and leaders in this
part of the world help stop this injustice and speak up for minority religious
rights.  Lord in your mercy



We pray alongside the World Council of
Churches for all the countries of the Caribbean. Lord in your mercy
