Obama Ends Visit in Israel – President Obama’s visit to Israel was met with mixed reviews. His primary speech given Thursday to an audience of university students and government officials was clear about his stance on promoting a Palestinian State, alongside an Israeli State. He made no mention, however, of Jerusalem in the process and this caused great concern for many. It does not seem that Obama has altered his view on Israel and the Middle East Crisis, causing concern that the next four years may be quite rocky for America and Israel. Please pray for America’s foreign policy regarding Israel, and for a miracle of the Obama administration to stop pressuring Israel to exchange land for “peace”.

Syrian Attack with Chemical Weapons – there are mixed reports about whether or not chemical weapons were used to attack a rebel stronghold in northern Syria earlier this week. This is obviously concerning for Israel, as we share a border with Syria, and concerns about the fighting spilling into Israel have been realized in a few incidents. Please continue to pray for this situation in Syria, that God would intervene greatly in this civil war, and that evil regimes will come to justice. For more, see Attack in Syria
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! Shabbat shalom…

We pray for the people of Israel during this Passover season and know that God is watching over his people. We find it most disturbing that President Obama chose not to address the governing body of Israel but rather a group of students. His message to the world is most alarming. We pray for the people in Syria and Gaza as well during this time.
We love and pray for Israel because HE placed it in our spirits. HIS words are mighty, powerful. It taught us to value every dot and tittle. HE gives us the passion to please HIM, to love whom HE loves and cherish as HE affirms obedience, love and compassion extends broadly in our hearts. Thank YOU, Yeshua Maschiach, defend YOUR
