New Government to Be Announced This Week: After weeks of very difficult negotiations, it appears the new government will be formed this week. It appears that progress was made Saturday night with between Netanyahu’s Likud-Beitenu party and Lapid’s Yesh Atid and Bennett’s Bayit Yehudi parties. Please pray for the right people to be placed in the right positions and that they would govern justly and with wisdom. Please also pray that God would convict the hearts of those who are corrupt or who are seeking their own interest. Lastly, please pray that the new government would help lead Israel to a place where believers can shine as a light and bring many to their Messiah. For more, see Coalition Negotiations

Egyptians Riot After Court Convicts Soccer Fans: Egyptian riots grew after a court ruling convicted 21 soccer fans in the deaths of 70 people after a match. Many felt that those who were truly guilty, the Islamists, were let free because of their connections to the government or police. Many Egyptians are losing faith in the Muslim Brotherhood government. Israel continues to monitor the situation for fear of instability spreading. Please pray for Egyptians to see the shortcomings in Islam and to turn to the Prince of Peace. Please also pray that the instability in Egypt would not spread and that the rogue Islamic groups in the Sinai would not grow or threaten Israel. Lastly, please pray that Believers in Egypt will continue to be strengthened and to be a witness to those around them. For more, see Egyptian Riots

Locusts Continue to Enter Israel: Swarms of locusts continue to enter Israel from Egypt. Egypt experienced a devastating swarm of locusts that devoured many crops within a few hours and descended on markets. Israel was prepared for the threat and so has not experienced the devastation that Egypt experienced but has still had some crops damaged. Please pray that God would protect Israel’s crops from any further damage. Please also pray that there would be no ill effects from the insecticides being sprayed in the south.

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! Shevuah Tov…
