MICHIGAN INTERFAITH COALITION FOR PALESTINE

Friends –

The Michigan Interfaith Coalition for Palestine is requesting that communities of faith and goodwill designate the week of March 27 to April 2 as a time of prayer, meditation and reflection for a just peace in the Holy Land.

This week has been chosen because it includes Land Day, March 30. This day is an occasion on which Palestinians celebrate the life-sustaining gifts of the earth and mourn the loss of their livelihood and freedom of movement as a result of occupation. Most importantly, it is a day on which Palestinians invite people around the world to join them in working for peace with justice in the Holy Land.

Please ask for prayer, meditation and reflection for:

 People living under occupation, especially Palestinians in the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza who are seeing their homes seized and/or destroyed, their lands confiscated, and their mobility limited by walls and checkpoints placed inside Palestinian territory.

 Palestinians who are engaged in the nonviolent struggle for freedom, justice and human dignity, along with their Israeli and international counterparts.

 Israeli and Palestinian leaders in the search for a just and peaceful end to this 44-year occupation and the violence it has wrought.

 Our own elected officials, that they may be imbued with wisdom, courage and integrity as they make decisions that impact the future of Israel/ Palestine.

Thank you for joining with us and the people of the Holy Land in seeking peace and justice. May all who thirst drink from the ever-flowing stream.
