Prayers for Peacemakers, April 10, 2013

Prayers for Peacemakers, March 13, 2013

Pray for all connected to grids of power, that we may learn from the excluded, threatened and expelled how to overcome apathy, indifference and collusion as powers and principalities target land, air, sea, life. May we welcome, not dread, God's new thing.

SOUTH HEBRON HILLS: Eight villages face expulsion in Firing Zone 918

Imagine that your neighborhood was declared a firing range. You are threatened with forced evacuation. Demolition orders are issued for your home, your church and the school your children attend. Your land will cease to belong to you, and your livestock will be removed.
