US Shutdown Affects Israel:  Due to the shutdown of the US government this week, Israel will not receive its promised military aid from the USA.  Israel was supposed to receive $3.2 billion for the 2014 fiscal year on October 1st.  Israel depends on the aid to support its high defense budget due to the constant need to defend its borders from hostile neighbors.  Please pray that God will provide for Israel in other ways, and that Israel will depend on her God alone!  Please pray that the American government will regroup and get up and running as this shutdown is very hard on many people throughout the world, mostly the American people.  For more, see Delayed Aid

September – Spike in Terror Attacks:  The Israeli Security Agency, Shin Bet, reported that there was a sharp rise in terror attacks in September.  While most of the attacks occurred in the disputed Judea & Samaria region, there were more attacks in Jerusalem, where Jews and Arabs interact on a daily basis.  Please continue to pray for God’s protection from terror attacks.  Please pray for the salvation of both Jewish and Arab peoples, for Yeshua alone is our hope for peace.  For more, see September Terror Attacks

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! Shabbat shalom…
