Prayer to Mark 50 Years of Occupation

We have witnessed the Israeli occupation of Palestine
and in this 50th year we pray for jubilee.

June 2017

Canadian Friends of Sabeel (CFOS) invites our Canadian supporters and partner contacts to take time this June to mark the 50 long years of occupation of Palestine.  As small groups or as individuals, reflect on the glimpses of the occupation you have witnessed in Palestine, pray for liberation, and renew your commitment to action.

Here are some suggested resources you can use:

We want to share with our Palestinian partners that Canadians are still committed to working with them in the struggle for liberation.  Please send CFOS an email at info@necefsabeel.ca if you participate in this call for reflection and prayer, if you wish you are welcome to sign this sample letter to partners.

Renew your commitment to action:

You shall hallow the fiftieth year and you shall proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you: you shall return, every one of you, to your property and every one of you to your family.  That fiftieth year shall be a jubilee for you… Land will not be sold absolutely, for the land belongs to me, and you are only strangers and guests of mine. You will allow a right of redemption over any ancestral property. (from Lev. 25)
