Join Churches for Middle East Peace (CMEP), FCNL, and other CMEP member communions in a Day of Prayer and Fasting on Friday, Oct. 27.

Joining in partnership with Christians of all denominations and other faith traditions, we are heeding His Holiness Pope Francis’ call to pray for peace in the Holy Land.

We will gather online for a prayer vigil to pray specifically for a ceasefire, an end to the horrific violence in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories, a return of all hostages held by Hamas, an end to the blockade and bombing campaign on Gaza, for the occupation and human rights abuses in the region to be brought to an end, and for lasting peace between Israelis, Palestinians, and all people in the Middle East and the world.

We will be lead in prayer by pastors, bishops, heads of communion, and others.
