BMS World Mission
Please join us this week as we lift up the conflict in Israel-Palestine.
- Pray for all those responding to the ongoing crisis in Israel-Palestine, that God would sustain them through exhaustion and tragedy. Pray that more aid will be allowed into Gaza to reach those in need.
- Pray that Lebanon will not be drawn into the Israel-Hamas conflict, and that threats of escalation from Hezbollah will be contained. Pray for our partner in Lebanon as they prepare to respond in case the worst happens.
- Pray for the world watching Israel-Palestine. Ask that eyes would be opened to the injustices and violence happening there and that we would all pray for God’s liberation, justice and peace to be known by all.
