Prayers for Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories on the 24th of each month

General Synod 2015 approved the Global Partnerships Committee motion that members of the Scottish Episcopal Church be encouraged join the Scottish ecumenical initiative, promoted by Christian Aid, in praying for Israel/Palestine on the 24th day of every month. This initiative was supported by a motion which called for the recognition and support of the Pope’s recent recognition of the State of Palestine and his call for reconciliation.
