Cyber War Between Hackers and Israel: Hackers have been targeting Israeli websites over the weekend, including the Holocaust museum, Yad Vashem’s website. The hacker group Anonymous is said to be behind the attacks. The attacks were said to be an act of solidarity with the Palestinians. Yad Vashem apparently came under a fairly massive attack by Anonymous, lending question as to the hackers real concern for justice. Please pray that these attacks would not cause any lasting damage to Israelis or Israeli organizations. Please also pray that these hackers would have their eyes opened and that God would thwart plans for harm. Lastly, please pray that many would see the truth of the situation in Israel and not buy into populistic propaganda. For more, see Cyber War

Hamas Linked Terror Cell Arrested: Israel’s Shin Bet security service arrested 5 Palestinians from the East Jerusalem refugee camp, Shuafat, for their involvement in a Hamas linked terror cell. The cell apparently was behind attacks at the Temple Mount, including throwing Molotov cocktails at security forces. Please pray for safety and wisdom for all of Israel’s security forces and IDF officers and that they would handle these situations justly. Please also pray for God to protect all innocent civilians so that no one would be harmed by such plots. Lastly, please pray for Israel to look to their Savior for their defense and not only physical armies or security forces. For more, see Terror Cell Arrested

Holocaust Remembrance Day to Begin at Sundown: Holocaust Remembrance Day will begin at sundown today and last until sundown tomorrow. This is a solemn day in which we remember the 6 million Jews whose lives were taken from them in the worst crime against humanity in history. Please pray for the Jewish people, that they would turn to their Messiah and find security in Him. Please pray that they would turn from hopelessness and a sense of victimhood to realize that they have victory in God and that there is hope. Lastly, please pray that this would be a holiday in which many Israelis can begin to truly consider God and the restoration that He has given.

Please continue to pray for the Body of Messiah in Israel as Israel is facing uncertain times; please pray we will be a great source of blessing to all Israel and that through our witness, many in Israel will come to know their Messiah.  Please pray for strength, courage, gentleness, and boldness in our witness to our neighbors who do not yet know Yeshua.

Thank you for praying and standing with Israel! Shevuah Tov…
