A month after the destruction at Tent of Nations, we are still in prayer for Daoud. For those not yet familiar with this event, please see our previous post, here.
We are grateful for Jeremy Rodgers, a friend, filmmaker, and advocate for peace, who traveled to the Holy Land and created a short film on the events that occurred. This video allows Daoud an opportunity to share this struggle with his brothers and sisters in Christ.

Let us continue in prayer for Daoud. That he may have perseverance, hope, and the love that only Christ can give as he continues his ministry and seeks to protect his land. Let us also pray for all people of the Holy Land, Muslim, Christian, and Jew, that they might enjoy a life free of violence, fear, and want.
Book of Common Prayer, Prayers and Thanksgivings, 33. For Cities
Heavenly Father, in your Word you have given us a vision of that holy City to which the nations of the world bring their glory: Behold and visit, we pray, the cities of the earth. Renew the ties of mutual regard which form our civic life. Send us honest and able leaders. Enable us to eliminate poverty, prejudice, and oppression that peace may prevail with righteousness, and justice with order, and that men and women from different cultures and with differing talents may find with one another the fulfillment of their humanity; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
