Last week, during an Israeli military raid in Ramallah, Israeli forces fired tear gas, live ammunition, and stun grenades into a fruit and vegetable market. Consequently, the market caught on fire and Palestinian firefighters battled with the flames for several hours. At least one Palestinian was injured in the attack. This attack is symbolic of the destruction people experience regularly across the West Bank.

Divine creator, you entrusted us to be stewards of your good creation. Lord, help us fulfill our responsibilities by resisting the empires who are reckless with their power, destroying anything in their path. We remember that the, “One who is wise is cautious and turns away from evil, but a fool is reckless and careless” (Proverbs 14:16). Lord, sober up the powerful and give us wisdom as we fight for justice.

Lord in your mercy… hear our prayer
