EAPPI Prayer Vigil

Please use the prayer vigil schedule to pray each month for our brothers and sisters in the Christian communities in and around Jerusalem, for all those who are suffering in the Holy Land, for Israelis and Palestinians, and for peace in the Middle East.

The prayer vigil began on the First Sunday of Advent 2000 and will continue until the violence ends and we can celebrate a just and lasting negotiated resolution to the conflict.

The vigil is coordinated by the US program of the World Council of Churches' Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel.
