This week many Palestinians gathered outside the Damascus Gate in Jerusalem in protest at the discrimination they face living under occupation by Israel. These protests come in response to the previous weeks’ demonstrations of hundreds of far-right and anti-Palestinian Israeli activists.
• Lord, we pray for justice and peace in our troubled city Jerusalem. We give thanks to all who continue to speak truth to power and protest the unjust policies
of the decision makers.
Lord, in your mercy…hear our prayers.
