CMEP: Day of Prayer and Fasting
Join Churches for Middle East Peace (CMEP) and our member communions in a Day of Prayer and Fasting on Friday, October 27th. Joining in partnership with Christians of all denominations and other faith traditions, we are heeding His Holiness Pope Francis’ call to pray for peace in the Holy Land. We will be gathering online for a prayer vigil to pray specifically for a ceasefire, an end to the horrific violence in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories, a return of all hostages held by Hamas, an end to the blockade and bombing campaign on Gaza, for the occupation and human rights abuses in the region to be brought to an end, and for lasting peace between Israelis, Palestinians, and all people in the Middle East and the world.
We will be lead in prayer by pastors, bishops, heads of communion – including the Rev. Dr. Karen Georgia Thompson, General Minister and President of the United Church of Christ, and the Rev. Teresa “Terri” Hord Owens, General Minister and President of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), among others.
Friday, October 27, 2023, 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm Eastern, on Zoom
