Bethlehem is seeing lots and lots of visitors! Unbelievable! Great atmosphere! Most visitors are from abroad, things are quiet at the moment so more and more people are visiting which is really good!
May the peace of the Lord fill your heart now and forever more!
We saw various photos online of Bethlehem’s Christmas lights switch-on in Manger Square and heard of a church-sponsored music festival there (19-21 Dec) to promote peace and tolerance. In view of all this activity, we asked Grace for some prayer topics.
And then the snow arrived…
It is snowing heavily in Bethlehem! Unbelievable!
*Pray that people would draw closer to the Lord this Christmas and not be distracted by any of the festive celebrations.
* Pray for peace to reign in Palestine and the rest of the Middle East.
*Pray for freedom of movement for Palestinians at this time and beyond.
*Pray for an increased vision and commitment amongst Christians to serve one another and the community.
