Ceasefire in Effect
An Egyptian-brokered ceasefire went into effect Tuesday evening. Residents of the south still carry doubt that this will be an end to the rocket fire, while Palestinians in Gaza run to the streets shouting victory. Seemingly this is the close of Operation Protective Edge there is still much to be in prayer for. Pray for the recovery of families in Israel who have lost homes and loved ones and for their lives and health to be restored. Also for the innocent Palestinians in Gaza who suffered severe losses, pray that they will hold their leaders accountable for the destruction. Pray that hatred and wickedness will be uprooted from within and that the Hope of Yeshua will be found.
Wednesday and Thursday clashes occurred between Syrian rebel fighters and Assad’s regime soldiers in a fight to take over the border crossing between Syria and Israel. It is believed that Syrian rebels, some connected with al-Qaeda, took over the area near the border crossing. Two Israeli’s, a soldier and a civilian, were caught up in the crossfire and injured. Please pray for the protection of Israel’s northern borders. Many of Israel’s neighbors seek the destruction of Israel. Pray that God will guard and protect Israeli’s living in the area of the Golan Heights.
BDS- Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions
The BDS movement is a global initiative aimed at using economic leverage to place political pressure on Israel as a way of supporting the Palestinian cause. Governments, companies, and organizations are boycotting the buying and selling of goods, products and services from Israel. This campaign also encourages individual consumers to boycott buying any Israeli goods. Lately, we’ve seen protests aimed at preventing commercial boats carrying goods from Israel from docking in the U.S. ports. Please be praying against this movement that places a burden on Israel’s economy and businesses. Pray for the governments and individuals making these decisions to boycott Israel, that they would not see Israel nor the God of Israel as their enemy.
Within a very short amount of time, this new militant terrorist group ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) has swept through large territories in Syria and now northern Iraq. They have reached headlines worldwide for their brutal force and killings of different minority groups in Syria and Iraq. It is their aim to establish an Islamic state in the Levant region under strict Islamic law. War is raging all around Israel and Islamic nations are growing in power. Please stand with us and on God’s word which says, “You shall not be terrified of them, for the Lord your God, the great and awesome God, is among You.” Deuteronomy 7:21
