PM Netanyahu and President Abbas

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Abbas briefly met and shook hands at the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris today, shaking hands for the first time in five years. This was not a diplomatic meeting to discuss peace talks, but it is a good reminder for us to be praying for these two leaders. They have not been on speaking terms for over a year and sit down talks even longer than that. The division between the two leaders is also representative of the relationship between the two populations which are growing more and more divided. Please join us in prayer for true reconciliation between these leaders and the people they represent – the kind that can only be realized through the power of God.
