Solidarity and Prayer: A Message from the Nazareth Trust

We would like to extend our sincere thanks to all those of you who have sent us messages expressing your deep concern and prayer support for the staff and institutions of the Nazareth Trust following the horrific violence and destruction of life we have witnessed over the past days. These very tragic events have deeply traumatised both Jewish and Arab communities in Israel and Gaza and we share in their pain and sorrow at this very challenging time for all of us.

Our prayerful desire is that the Nazareth Hospital EMMS will continue to provide a ministry of healing, hope and hospitality in Jesus name to all those who come to us in their hour of need (as it has during past wars and conflicts in the Holy Land). We also pray that the entire campus of the Nazareth Trust (including the Doctor’s House, the Nazareth Academic School of Nursing and the Nazareth Village will provide a place of peace and refuge to all our service users and visitors during the current conflict.

Please join us in continuing to pray for the following needs in the days and weeks ahead:

  • God’s comfort and consolation for all those grieving the loss of loved ones from the horrific violence of the past few days.
  • Healing for those who have been wounded and are recovering in hospitals across the country and in Gaza and for the hospital staff treating them.
  • Healing of hearts and minds from the deep trauma that people have and continue to suffer.
  • A speedy end to the current hostilities and that it will not escalate and expand to other areas.
  • God’s peace and protection for all our staff and their families and for the safety and security of all the facilities of the Nazareth Trust.
  • Wisdom and grace for the leadership of the Nazareth Trust as we provide leadership and direction to the staff and stakeholders of the Nazareth Trust during this conflict.
  • God’s provision for the financial and other resources for the various entities of the Nazareth Trust in this unprecedented time of upheaval in the economy and security of Israel.

With our thanks and gratitude for your prayers and support during this difficult time.

God bless!

Richard Mayhew
CEO of the Nazareth Trust
