PA Officials Head to DC to Pressure Obama Administration: Several Palestinian Authority officials are on their way to DC to pressure the Obama administration to insist that Israel freeze all settlement building and release Palestinian prisoners. Obama will be visiting Israel next month and is expected to try to restart the stalled peace process. Please pray that God would give Obama wisdom and that his eyes would be opened to the truth. Please also pray that God’s plan for the region would triumph and that any plans of the enemy would be thwarted. Lastly, please pray that both Israelis and Palestinians would seek His peace rather than a worldly solution. For more, see Palestinians Head to DC

Battle Between Syrian Rebels and Hezbollah Near Israel Border: A battle near the Israeli border resulted in casualties to both the Syrian rebels and to Hezbollah. Hezbollah is aiding the Syrian regime and attempting to take control of Southern Lebanon. Several Syrian rebels were treated in Israeli hospitals. Please pray that God would change the hearts of those fighting on both sides of the Syrian civil war. Please also pray that God will protect Israel regardless of the outcome and would draw both rebels and those assisting the regime to Him and that they would repent from their violence.

Negotiations Continue for Israeli Coalition: Negotiations are continuing for the formation of a coalition that will represent Israel in the government. This is a very complicated process with a lot of bargaining and maneuvering for positions. Please pray that Netanyahu and those making coalition decisions will do what is right for Israel rather than only seeking interests in the process. Please also pray that those with integrity and justice would be given a place in the coalition and that all such decisions would be made in an honest way. Lastly, please pray for Israel’s next government to have wisdom in this crucial period. For more, see Detangling Israel’s Election Results

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…
