Prayer about rioting in Kfar Kassem

Lord, we pray about the rioting taking place in the Arab-Israeli village of Kfar Kassem right now. With at least one person already killed and several police officers seriously injured, we are anxious for security forces to defuse the situation as soon as possible. May not only the security forces, but also the most influential people among the demonstrators choose to de-escalate the situation, rather than harm more people and destroy more property. Lord, may peace arrive in Kfar Kassem quickly. When the drama deflates, the wounded are tended, and the damage is assessed, may the village leaders address the root problem of escalating violence in the area. May the villagers do their part to contribute positive efforts in solving the community’s problems. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
