Palestinian residents of the village of Kafr Qaddum, near the city of Qalqilia, face daily attacks from Israeli settlers. On the 1st of January, 18 villagers were injured when the Israeli army used bullets and tear gas to disperse their protest against Israeli settlement expansion.
- Lord, we pray for all Palestinians as they continue to protest against the theft of their land for Israeli settlements. Lord, you are ‘a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble’, (Ps.9:9). You promise, Lord that ,‘the needy shall not always be forgotten and the hope of the poor shall not perish forever.’( Ps.9:18). Lord, in your mercy…hear our prayers.
