Sabeel aims to strive towards theological liberation through instilling the Christian faith in the daily lives of those who suffer under occupation, violence, injustice, and discrimination. This includes advocacy, awareness building, building unity through implementing community projects, and bringing people together to study the Bible.
Sabeel's Wave of Prayer is a great way to engage with their work. It provides a news update on life in Palestine, and a prayer to say together with thousands of others who are praying for peace in the Middle East.
