West Bank

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Lord, convince the Israeli army to refrain from unilateral steps that exacerbate tensions and undercut efforts to advance a two-state solution with West Bank. Order peace as hundreds of Palestinians in West Bank protest President Mahmoud Abbas to leave and want the fall of the regime.  Grant wisdom to the Palestinian Authority established as part of the peace process in the 1990s and governs parts of the Israeli-occupied West Bank to act prudently. Inspire the Christian Believers in West Bank to gather in one accord to seek the intervention of God and fight against the demonic forces. For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. (The Bible, Romans 13:4).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

The West Bank is an area of land east of Israel. It is home to nearly three million Palestinians. Israel took control of it in 1967 and has allowed Jewish settlers to move in. In 1967, Israel fought a war and in six days routed the Arab powers, taking the West Bank and East Jerusalem from Jordan. Israel has controlled the West Bank since then. It’s home to many Jewish holy sites, like the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron. Unemployment soars as high as 30%, and only 17% have access to the available water resources.
