Stop and pray with us for the continued conflict in Israel and Gaza:
God of all nations, we pray today for Israel and Gaza.
1. We pray for those grieving the sudden loss of loved ones, captives, and those whose homes have been destroyed.
2. We pray for a miraculous de-escalation of this conflict, asking for reason to overcome rage and revenge. We also ask that other nations will be restrained from escalating this situation further.
3. We pray for effective international peacemaking, seeking diplomacy over warmongering on all sides. Blessed are the merciful and the peacemakers. (Matthew 5:7, 9)
This prayer has been adapted from Pete Greig’s prayer which was originally posted on social media on Sunday 8 October.
