Israel Strikes Syria: Israel carried out airstrikes on Syria on Wednesday. Syrian reports say that Israel struck a convoy transporting missiles and also struck a research center. Though not unexpected, this could lead to further escalation between Israel and Hezbollah or Syria. Iran has also warned that they will take such strikes seriously. Please pray for God’s protection over Israel and that He will thwart the enemy’s plans. Please also pray for the innocent civilians caught in the middle in Syria, that they will know God’s peace and comfort. Lastly, please intercede for Israel to recognize their Messiah and that their protection comes from God alone. For more, see Israel Strikes Syria

Iran Threatens to Increase Uranium Enrichment: After a blast supposedly damaged an enrichment site, Iran has threatened to increase their uranium enrichment by installing more centrifuges. They claim this is only for nuclear energy purposes, though many are concerned that this could be used to come closer to building a nuclear weapon. Please pray that God would continue to keep Iran from achieving any goals that involve violence against innocent civilians. Please also pray for the innocent civilians both in Iran and in Israel, as well as anywhere else that could be threatened by a nuclear weapon, that God would place a shield around them. Lastly, please pray for God’s restoration of Israel, which will bring revival and peace to the region. For more, see Iran Uranium Enrichment

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! Shabbat Shalom…

The Hope for Israel Prayer Team
