Finally, after the 2010 Mavi Marmara incident, Turkey is willing to normalize ties with Israel. There has been a great deal of stress over the severing of relations between the two countries, and Turkey has been outrageously demanding of any Israeli attempts to normalize the relationship. Now that both countries stand to profit from natural gas reserves discovered in the Mediterranean Sea, diplomatic ties will normalize. Please pray for wisdom for Israel and its leaders in this deal, especially as Turkey is making some strong demands regarding Gaza and the maritime blockade that Israel has imposed in order to prevent the smuggling of weapons. Please also pray that this will be a renewed start between Israel and her neighbors, and that this will set precedence for future treaties with other Arab countries.
