 I cannot endure solemn assemblies
with iniquity…
Wash yourselves;
make yourselves clean;
remove the evil of your doings

Prayers for Peacemakers, 7 August 2013

Ask that God support the people of Hebron, who were unable to celebrate fully one of their most important holidays, Laylat-al-Qadr, this year at the Ibrahimi Mosque, even though it is one of the holidays for which the Israeli military guarantees them access to the mosque.
