We are reinvigorating the Ecumenical Prayer Vigil for Peace in the Middle East, in response to a call from the ACT Palestine Forum. This global ecumenical prayer vigil began on Dec. 24, 2012, and will continue across the globe, on the 24th of every month, until the Israeli occupation is dismantled, violence in the Middle East ends, and all can celebrate a just and lasting negotiated resolution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
Please sign your congregation or group up for the prayer vigil here.
You can find prayer resources here.
Many of you have actively participated in the prayer vigil since 2000 — please help us raise awareness about and bring energy to the new prayer vigil. Encourage people to pray together as a family, as office or parish colleagues, or as a congregation, on the 24th of each month as part of this vigil.
Please email Karin Brown (Karin.Brown@elca.org), Peace Not Walls coordinator, with any prayer vigil resources or ideas that you want to share with the wider network.
