The Sabeel Wave of Prayer
October 26th, 2017

Adverts highlighting the unjust Balfour declaration of 1917, when Britain promised a Jewish national home in Palestine, have been blocked by the Transport For London, on the grounds they are politically controversial.

·         Lord, there may be free speech in Britain on every issue, but not on Palestine. As the powerful, unsuccessfully, attempted to silence Jesus as he was considered religiously, socially and politically controversial, may the attempts to silence the cry of the Palestinians for justice end with failure. Lord in your mercy…

The Israeli army raided the offices of eight TV channels and production companies in the West Bank, confiscating equipment and closing some. Two Palestinian journalists were arrested.

·         Lord, the powerful attempt to silence us with violence. We pray that the inspiration, passion and energy of Palestinian journalists continue to raise awareness of the Israeli violations in Palestine. Lord in your mercy…

Israeli prime minister, Netanyahu, is pushing a bill that will stop the funding of Human rights organizations in Israel.

·         Dear Lord, we suffer suppression whilst being oppressed. We pray that justice continues to be spoken by our Israeli friends. Lord in your mercy…

Currently we are making final preparations for the Sabeel Witness Visit Nov.1st-Nov 9th on the theme of “Christian Zionism and Colonialism.”

·         Lord may your Holy Spirit be with us in our preparations. Lord in your mercy hear our prayer…

We celebrate with the Franciscan religious order 800 Years of their presence in the Holy Land.

·         We thank you Lord for their support of the Christian presence in the Holy Land, their Educational services, Health care, Housing and Humanitarian Projects.Lord in your mercy hear our prayer…
