Four IDF Soldiers Injured in Terror Attack:  Arabs attacked an IDF jeep on Shavuot (Wednesday) near the village of Hebron.  The four soldiers were all wounded, two with 2nd and 3rd degree burns.  The other two soldiers were released from the hospital today.  This is yet another incident confirming fears that a 3rd Intifada is rising up, which will inevitably bring more deadly injuries to those on both sides of this issue.  PLEASE INTERCEDE FOR ISRAEL NOW!  We are facing increasingly violent times, all the while the world puts more pressure on Israel to make more concessions for “peace” that will ultimately threaten her ability to defend herself.  But we know He is our great Defender, and He will come to Israel’s rescue at her darkest hour.

Israel First in Poverty Level Among Developed Nations:  Israel has the highest poverty rate amongst developed nations according to the OECD’s latest report.  The widening gap between the rich and poor, as well as the high tax rate were among the reasons for the increasing poverty in Israel.  Many families simply cannot survive in today’s economy, and it’s very stressful.  Please continue to pray for God’s miraculous provision over Israel and her people.  Please pray that people will spend money wisely and that the government will use wisdom when it comes to social programs and the exceedingly high tax rate.  For more, see Israel First in Poverty

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…
