On Monday 8th April, Sabeel will hold their annual walk along the Contemporary Way of the Cross with the Palestinian community, in preparation for the Holy season of Easter. This walk joins together the suffering of Christ on the Cross with the suffering of Palestinians at present, and connects the stations of the Cross with contemporary issues of injustice within Israel and Palestine.
- God, we ask that you be with those attending this year’s walk. Send your Holy Spirit to guide them as they remember the suffering Christ experienced as he was being led to the cross, and as they link the present suffering of the Palestinian people to it. Remind them too, God, that the joy of Easter Sunday follows the pain of Good Friday, and so too the present injustices in the world will end and you will have the final victory. Lord, in your mercy…hear our prayer.
