Chemical Attack in Syria:  Bashar Assad has reportedly used chemical weapons to attack a rebel stronghold in Syria.  Reports say that at least 635 people have been killed as a result.  This has serious implications for Israel, with whom Syria shares a border.  This may be the red line for the international community to get involved in the Syrian civil war, which would bring the Middle East into further turmoil.  Please pray for the healing of those injured in the attack, especially the children.  Please pray for great wisdom for Israel’s government as they decide what action to take in order to keep Israel safe from Syrian attacks.  Lastly, please pray that the Assad regime will be held responsible for the continuous assault on its people.

Iron Dome Deployed in Central Israel:  The anti-rocket Iron Dome battery was deployed in central Israel this week.  While the IDF did not comment directly on the reason, it seems it is just a precautionary measure amidst increasing tensions within Israel.  Please continue to pray for God’s protection over Israel, especially as the situation deteriorates around us.  Please also pray that any attempts to harm Israel will be thwarted.  For more, see Iron Dome

Please continue to pray for the Body of Messiah in Israel as the time of the tribulation draws near; 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! Have a blessed week…
