IDF Outpost Seized by Syrian Rebels:  Syrian rebels seized an unmanned IDF outpost in the Golan Heights. The rebels then came under fire from both Israel and Syria. This is yet another incident of fighting spilling over from Syria into sovereign Israeli land, and there’s concern that it may escalate.  Please continue to pray for the war in Syria, for the innocent lives at stake, and for the fighting to stop.  Please also pray for Israel’s protection from the war.  For more, see Syrian Rebels

Tires Slashed in Mixed Jerusalem Neighborhood:  The tires of Jewish residents of the Abu Tor neighborhood in Jerusalem were slashed by Arab extremists.  This is similar to the Price Tag attacks of Jewish extremists on Arab residents in Israel.  The tension is definitely rising between the two people groups and it is causing much concern within Israel.  Please pray for our Jewish and Arab brethren to know Messiah!  He is our only hope for peace.  Please also pray that Israel will diligently seek those responsible and make it clear that these kinds of attacks are not acceptable.  For more, see Abu Tor Incident

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…

The Hope for Israel Prayer Team
