All members of the US Congress and the Senate, as well as members of the White House, received an ecumenical statement form Global Ministries on November 14th. The statement has sixteen signatories form different churches. It voices dismay over the US support for Israel over the concerns of the Palestinians, since President Trump took office in 2017. The statement outlines in detail how US policies are designed to ‘punish’ Palestinians and to ‘take away their human rights, dignity and hope’.
Lord we pray that those in authority in the US may be challenged by the statement from Global Ministries and may reflect on the harm their policies are inflicting on the Palestinians. Lord in your mercy… hear our prayers
