Today, six world powers — including the governments of U.S., Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China– reached a nuclear arms deal after many tiring months of negotiations. Israeli PM Netanyahu says it is a mistake of historic proportions. The details of the agreement are being revealed in bits and pieces, all of which will be given to the U.S. Congress for a vote of approval or disapproval here in the near future. We know that the agreement doesn’t entirely remove Iran’s nuclear program. It has agreed to reduce it dramatically, giving a one-year window notice in case Iran decides to break its agreement. Negotiators also failed to meet the standard of ‘anytime, anywhere’ access to Iran’s nuclear sites as demanded by the U.S. Congress. If Iran abides by the terms, the UN has agreed to release its sanctions, freeing up approximately $100 billion worth of frozen assets to the Iranian government. This is just the beginning of developments in Iran. The world is optimistic that diplomacy as such will bring peace to the world. We cannot read the future, but we do know the author of time and the One in control of all things. Please pray for steady hearts and minds that are fixed on the Lord in light of all of these world events. Pray for peace and protection of Israel who is close neighbors to Iran. Please pray that God’s will will be done as a result of or in spite of what the world is seeking to accomplish.
