Abba Father, as your children called to be peace makers (Matt. 5:9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God”), we speak peace into these divisive issues of identity and nationhood; between Palestinians and Israelis.
Help us not partake in inflammatory and divisive arguments surrounding the above issues.
We pray for mercy, compassion and generosity being extended to Palestinian refugees by those who have the ability to provide aid and real opportunities in all areas of living.
We pray for Palestinian refugees to resist the extremism of hatred.
We pray that you protect Christian Palestinians from political factions but rather remind them to keep their eyes on Christ alone, who is “our wisdom from God–that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption” (1 Cor. 1:30).
Please heal all those who have suffered and still suffer from injustice, prejudice, violence and exploitation.
Thank you for those who desire to help Palestinian refugees. Give them discernment so that they do not unwittingly fund terror factions within this people group.
