This week’s Kumi Now initiative focuses on the work of the Palestinian grassroots organization ‘Stop the Wall’. As Israel has been constructing its 700km wall it has annexed more and more Palestinian land. Over 85% of the segregation wall has been built on land belonging to Palestinians and this organization seeks to dismantle it. The International Court of Justice declared the construction of the wall illegal in 2004.
- Dear Lord Jesus, our Prince of Peace, you will one day raise a banner for all the nations and gather people from the four corners of the earth to you (Is11:12). Lord, we pray for an end to the segregation caused by the wall, longing for it to be dismantled and the confiscated lands returned to their rightful owners. Lord, in your mercy…hear our prayer.
