Prayer for Arab woman who received kidney from Jewish man killed in Middle Eastern clashes 
PC: Maya Alleruzzo, AP

Almighty God, we pray for Randa Aweis, as she recovers from a kidney transplant that should inspire us all. Lord, we see the irony in Aweis’ story: that a Jewish man killed amid clashes between Arabs and Jews in Israel’s mixed city of Lod would donate his kidney to an Arab woman. As the conflict in the Middle East continues to unfold, we pray that this story would become symbolic to those who rage. We pray that people would choose peace and sacrifice, hope and reconciliation. We pray that the ceasefire would hold. And, Lord, we pray for the loved ones of Yigal Yehoshua, the Jewish man who lost his life amid the chaos and conflict. May those he leaves behind trust you. May they experience the peace that passes understanding. May they serve as beacons of light within their communities. We also pray that Aweis would fully recover from the transplant and develop a meaningful relationship with Yehoshua’s widow. Give her a fruitful life, adding immeasurable value to her family, community and beyond. We humbly pray, amen.
