On October 7, 2023, Hamas breached Israel’s border with Gaza, killing more than 1,500 people, injuring over 2,500, and taking over 100 hostages. Our hearts are heavy as we watch and pray. ARDF is partnering with CMJ-USA to bring aid and support to survivors of the conflict. You can support their work with a donation to ARDF.
CMJ-Israel is providing relief, spiritual care, trauma counseling, and coordinating housing for displaced families. Donate to support much-needed relief efforts, and please keep them and all who are suffering from this violence in your prayers.
Eternal God, in whose perfect kingdom no sword is drawn but the sword of righteousness, no strength known but the strength of love: Strengthen and protect those affected by the Israel-Hamas war, and so mightily spread abroad your Spirit, that all peoples may be gathered under the banner of the Prince of Peace; to whom be dominion and glory, now and forever. Amen. – Adapted from the Collect for the Peace of the World
Thank you for supporting our brothers and sisters in Israel!
