Prayers for the Pittsburgh Jewish Community
With heavy hearts in the aftermath of the barbarous terrorist attack of Tree of Life – Or L’Simcha Synagogue on Saturday morning, Olive Tree Alliance reaches out in love and with sympathy to the Jewish community of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
We pray for the grieving families and friends of the eleven victims. We pray for the complete healing of the six who were wounded. We unite our hearts in prayer for the Jewish community nationwide and across the globe who feel the pain of this heavy loss. May the memory of those who lost their lives be a blessing. May their families be comforted.
Olive Tree Alliance condemns all hateful anti-Semitic acts of violence, especially in the sanctity of a place of worship. We strongly encourage Christians to reach out and demonstrate solidarity with local Jewish communities during this difficult time. Olive Tree Alliance pledges to stand against anti-Semitism in all of its ugly forms.
Standing in support of the Jewish community and Israel,
Charles E. McCracken
The Lord is near to the broken-hearted, and He saves those of crushed spirit.
