Christians from the Holy Land are sharing a powerful worship song as a prayer for their war-ravaged homeland. It was shown on SAT-7 ARABIC program Today not Tomorrow as part of a special episode about the conflict in the Holy Land, and it is being played on local radio stations there – giving hope to listeners of different religions.
“Bless my Country” was produced by the Palestinian Bible Society, involving Christians from churches and choirs in different places, back in 2015, but it is being shared again now as a prayer for God’s grace, peace and blessing on the land in the midst of the devastating crisis.
“Our role as Christians is to be salt and light, to be tools in the hands of God to give out love and communication, to tear down walls between us and others. That’s our faith: to be like Christ during difficult circumstances,” Elias El-Najjar, from the Palestinian Bible Society, told Today not Tomorrow. He added, “Pray for the future generations in the Holy Land so they would have maturity, faith, steadfastness, and effectiveness.”
Would you please pause and pray for the following right now?
- Give thanks for the faith of Christians in the Holy Land, and pray for the Lord’s continued strength and encouragement.
- Pray that “Bless my Country” will make an impact in the hearts and minds of people throughout the Holy Land, and that the Lord will answer the prayers voiced in the song.
- Pray for all those grieving, injured, and suffering hardship as a result of the war. Pray for the Lord’s comfort, healing, and provision
