Terror Group Targeting Israelis Overseas: Israel’s Counterterrorism Department has warned that Iran’s Quds Force and Hezbollah are planning attacks on Israelis overseas during the holiday of Passover. The Sinai, Turkey, Nigeria, and Azerbaijan are all areas that are especially at high risk. They also emphasized that many terror attacks have been thwarted around the world. Please pray for protection over Israelis both around the world and within Israel during the holidays. Please pray that any plans to harm would be thwarted and that God would open the eyes of terrorists and bring them to repentance. Lastly, please pray for the upcoming holiday to be one in which many Israelis would come to know their Messiah and His redemption. For more, see Terrorists Targeting Israelis

Netanyahu Still Struggling to Form Government: Time is running out as Netanyahu is struggling to form a coalition that would make up the new government. Two of the largest parties as well as one of the smaller parties have formed a bloc to pressure Netanyahu. Yesh Atid, Habayit Hayehudi and Kadima all are demanding the Foreign and Finance Ministries with the agreement to support Netanyahu for a full 4 years if they receive these posts. Please pray for wisdom among the leaders as they form the next government. Please pray that God would place the right people in the right positions for the challenges that Israel is facing. Lastly, please pray for Israelis to begin to look to God more than to the government as their Provider and their Protection. For more, see Coalition Building Stalled

Golan Heights Peacekeepers Held Ransom By Syrian Rebels: As the Syrian conflict continues to edge closer to Israel, 21 UN Peacekeepers posted along the Syrian-Israel border were seized and are being held captive by Syrian rebels.

Please pray for believers in the region to continue to stand strong and be a source of stability amidst the instability. For more, see Peacekeepers Seized in Golan

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! Shabbat Shalom…
