- O Lord, hear the voice of our pleas for mercy as we bring before you the Palestinian schoolchildren who endure trauma at such a young age. We pray that governments around the world would take action to ensure that the Israeli government complies with international law and guarantee that these children have safe access to education. Lord, in your mercy… hear our prayers.
