Russia Seeks to Sponsor Conference on WMD in the Middle East: As Russia tries to take a more active role in the Middle East, it is pushing for a conference on Weapons of Mass Destruction in the Middle East.  The USA criticizes the move, as it will most likely lead to heavy criticism of Israel, which is the only supposedly nuclear-armed country in the region.  Israel has neither confirmed nor denied it possesses nuclear weapons.  Please continue to pray for Israel as she becomes increasingly isolated and criticized throughout the world for taking decisive measures to protect and secure her borders.  Please also pray for great wisdom for Israel’s leaders, and her allies, as they navigate these scenarios.  For more, see Russian Conference on WMD

Potential Conflict with Lebanon on the Horizon over Natural Gas:  Israel recently discovered that Lebanon is encroaching on its maritime border in efforts to drill for natural gas.  When confronted by Israel, Lebanese Minister of Energy & Water warned Israel that it is “playing with fire” for considering encroaching on Lebanon’s supposed maritime border and oil rights.  The maritime border between Israel and Lebanon has been under dispute since Israel discovered a huge natural gas field off its shores in recent years.  Please pray that this issue will not lead to a further tense situation, but also that Israel will be treated fairly and without bias in seeking to settle the situation.  Please also pray that Israel will continue to find more natural resources to help boost its economy and to bless the nations as a result.  For more, see Lebanese Maritime Border

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…
