Two Jewish Men Attacked in E.Jerusalem:  Just days after the vandalism in Abu Ghosh by extreme right-wing Jewish group, two Jewish men were attacked by a group of Israeli Arabs in East Jerusalem.  Their car was violently attacked, and the men narrowly escaped to get help from police.  This is but another incident of attacks between Jewish and Arab citizens of Israel, causing great concern that tensions will only continue to rise between the two groups.  Please continue to pray for the safety of Israel’s citizens, and for those who commit crimes – Jewish or Arab – to be brought to justice.  Please also pray for great wisdom for Israel’s government as they navigate the situation.  For more, see Attack in East Jerusalem

Family of Israeli Diplomat in Cyprus Attacked:  The 15-yr old son of an Israeli diplomat serving in Cyprus was severely attacked by classmates, forcing the family to return to Israel.  This is one example of the rising anti-Semitism throughout the world, and the increasing attacks against Jewish and Israeli people.  Please pray for the boy’s complete healing, and for him to find his hope in Messiah.  Please also pray that those who attacked him will find salvation in Messiah, and turn from their hatred.  Lastly, please pray that as these attacks will inevitably increase as we grow closer to His return, that many will find their protection and comfort in Him.  For more, see Israeli Youth Attacked Abroad

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! Shabbat shalom…
