World Week of Prayer for Peace in Palestine and Israel 2012

28 May – 3 June 2012
Pray, educate, and advocate for justice

The Palestine Israel Ecumenical Forum (PIEF) of the World Council of Churches invites member churches, faith-based communities, and civil society organizations to join together in 2012 for a week of advocacy and action in support of an end to the illegal occupation of Palestine and a just peace for all in Palestine and Israel. Congregations and individuals around the globe who share the hope of justice shall unite during the week to take peaceful actions, together, to create a common international public witness.

During World Week for Peace 2012, from 28 May to 3 June, participants are encouraged to plan their activities around the following three principles:

  • Praying with churches living under occupation, using a special prayer from Jerusalem and other worship resources prepared for the week.
  • Educating about actions that make for peace, and about facts on the ground that do not create peace, especially issues related to displacement.
  • Advocating with political leaders using ecumenical policies that promote peace with justice.
