Remember Palestine at Christmas

PRAYER AND ACTION FOR PALESTINE THIS ADVENT & CHRISTMAS Praying for Palestine, Advent 2015

Prayer

  O sad and troubled Bethlehem,
we hear your longing cry
For peace and justice to be born
and cruel oppression die.
How deep your need for that
great gift of love in human form
Let Christ in you be seen again
and hearts by hope made warm.

(Wendy Ross-Barker, 2001)
