Deal with Iran Close?  — the latest reports claim that a possible deal with Iran over limiting its nuclear program in exchange for lifting of crippling economic sanctions is near.  While Israel stands strongly against this kind of deal, the Obama administration is strongly pushing for it. In fact, President Obama has been heavily pressuring Congress to not pass additional sanctions in order to “give diplomacy a chance”.  The outcome of these sanctions not passing could be disastrous, especially since Iran has not shown good faith in slowing down or stopping uranium enrichment.  Please continue to intercede for this situation.  A nuclear-armed Iran will not only be dangerous for the entire Middle East, but also for the world.  Please pray that the LORD will frustrate their efforts to achieve this nuclear weapon.

Abbas to Israel: No Peace Without Right of Return – Abbas has made it very clear that there will never be peace with Israel without a “right of return” for thousands of Arabs who call themselves Palestinians.  This is a hotly contested issue, particularly because it will allow many hostile would-be Arab citizens into Israel who have no desire to live peacefully alongside Jewish citizens.  Please continue to pray for this difficult issue, as there is NO human solution.  As man continues to try to settle this age-old problem, the more damage is done.  Let us rely on the LORD’s wisdom and guidance!

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! Have a blessed week…
