Fares Abraham is a Palestinian Christian. He was born in the West Bank. His wife was born in Gaza—in the Al-Ahli Baptist hospital recently bombed despite the belief that a Christian hospital was the safest place to be in all of Gaza. How should Christians respond to the tragedies taking place in Israel and Palestine?
First and foremost, we must pray for peace—for all people. We are all made in the image of God and we must pray for both Israelis and Palestinians—for the Israeli leaders and even the leaders of Hamas who committed unspeakable atrocities. Let us remember that the Apostle Paul once persecuted—terrorized—Christians before his life was transformed by Gospel of peace. Pray that the Lord will raise up leaders who pursue peace and turn tragedy into triumph.
Fares Abraham has dedicated his life to fulfilling the Great Commission through the work of Levant Ministries which is committed to seeing “the Middle East healed and restored by the love and hope of Jesus Christ.” May we join him in prayer for the peace that surpasses all understanding and the renewal of all things.
