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


 August 14, 2014


 


God of justice and mercy, we continue to pray fervently that a Gaza-Israel cease-fire will hold and the bloodshed will permanently end.  We grieve the loss of all human life. We worry for the wounded, the displaced and the traumatized.  We weep for the surviving families, many who lost multiple family members, who must now move through life with such heaviness in their hearts.  Lord in your mercy


As the international community debates their future, the people of Gaza yearn for the ability to trade, fish in their sea water, rebuild their homes, and leave to visit family or pursue education and work opportunities.  We pray, Lord, that the illegal blockade will be lifted and your people in Gaza will come to know the human rights that have been withheld from them for much too long by the powers that be.  Lord in your mercy


Lord, the massacre in Gaza has affected all of Palestine and Israel, exposing injustice and discrimination, and causing increased tensions. In the West Bank, at least 16 people have been killed by live fire over the last month from Israeli soldiers during protests in solidarity with Gaza.  God of love, we pray that these unjustified killings end so that violence does not spread further and some healing can begin again in this troubled land.  Lord in your mercy


The Middle East is in turmoil, Lord, with atrocities happening daily in Iraq and Syria, especially in minority communities.  Give your people there strength and protection, merciful God, and let your peace spread faster than hate and war. Lord in your mercy


God of grace, we continue to ask for your blessing on Sabeel staff and volunteers who work tirelessly for peace and justice.  Give them wisdom and insight as they plan programs and events during the coming months.  Lord in your mercy


We pray alongside the World Council of Churches for the countries of New Zealand and Australia.  Lord in your mercy


*Sabeels Wave of Prayer will take a break and resume on September 4, 2014.  During this time, please continue to pray for peace and justice in Palestine and Israel.
