Iran Close to “Red Line”:  MK Yuval Steinitz said this week that Iran is close to crossing the “red line” that Prime Minister Netanyahu set forth as the marker for Israel attacking Iran.  As the world continues to impose sanctions and talk with Iran, Iran continues to enrich uranium necessary for a nuclear bomb.  Steinitz reported that Iran seeks not just one nuclear weapon, but an arsenal of them.  This is terribly concerning for Israel, as Iran seeks to “wipe off Israel from the map”.  Please continue to pray for God’s intervention in the Iranian nuclear program.  Please also pray for Israel’s protection, as only He can protect us from such evil.  Lastly, please pray for courage and wisdom for Israel’s leaders as they grow closer to making difficult decisions regarding Iran.  For more, see Israel’s Red Line

 Israel Cannot Rely on UN Peacekeeping:  PM Netanyahu said that Israel cannot rely on the UN’s peacekeeping forces to protect Israel.  This came in light of Austria’s recent decision to withdrawal 380 troops from the Israel-Syria border buffer zone, leaving only 620 troops.  As the situation in Syria has worsened exponentially recently, often spilling into Israel, it’s clear that Israel may need to intervene soon in order to protect its borders.  Please continue to pray for Israel’s protection from the Syrian civil war, and that God will protect Israel from any chemical weapon attacks from Syria and Hezbullah.  Please also pray for a quick end to the war in Syria, and that the many thousands of innocent people who are affected daily will know the salvation of the LORD.  For more, see Israel-Syria Conflict

Please continue to pray for the Body of Messiah in Israel as the days of tribulation grow closer; 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! Have a blessed week…
