This week’s Kumi Now initiative focuses on the work of Al-Quds University in Jerusalem. The university helps its students to come to grips with the prejudice and the challenges they face under the occupation of the Palestinian Territories by Israel. The Palestinian people are made up of Christians, Samaritans, alongside a majority of Muslims. The Western media will often portray all Palestinians as Muslim terrorists, and this undermines global support for their struggle for justice.
- Lord, we thank you for the work of Al Quds University and how they are trying to help young Palestinians to gain insight into the prejudice they face. We pray for the students that they may rise to the challenge of overcoming obstacles and hold onto their hope for the future. Lord, in your mercy…hear our prayer.
