Gaza Strip

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Lift Gaza from their ruins and rubbles as the bombardment caused as much as $380 million in damage, according to a joint report by the United Nations, the European Union, and the World Bank. Meet the dire needs of 62 percent of the population of Gaza in food insecurity because of the bombing campaign. Save the people in Gaza described to be an area “unlivable”. Supply the crying needs of Gaza’s two-million populations already with an unemployment rate of 48 per cent and poverty rates above 50 per cent before the attacks. Command the authorities to immediately make arrangements for medical equipment and medicine to reach the wounded and hospitalized. As the weapons manufacturing site in the Gaza Strip was hit again, bring Hamas under control to avoid sending the arson balloons and stop further escalation of the conflict. May the Gazan Churches cry out “Do not gloat over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness, the LORD will be my light. “(The Bible, Micah 7:8).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

The Gaza Strip is a narrow strip of land along the Mediterranean Sea in the Middle East, bordered by Egypt to the southwest and Israel to the north and east. Mahmoud Abbas is the president and Salam Fayyad is the Prime Minister in Gaza. The CORONAVIRUS found its way into the impoverished Palestinian territory, just as Israel was tightening its blockade in a standoff with Gaza’s militant Hamas rulers, and a strict lockdown has confined everyone to their homes. An outbreak could be devastating in the crowded, impoverished area, which only has 97 intensive care unit beds and ventilators, according to the charity Oxfam.
