4-year old boy killed by mortar fire
An awful tragedy happened today in the south of Israel when a young boy was killed from a mortar rocket that hit the car of his family. Rockets have been pouring down throughout Israel since the ceasefire was broken. We ask for your prayers for the family of the young boy and all those affected by his death. Pray for the protection of innocent civilians who are simply trying to carry out their days as usual when tragedy suddenly strikes. God, have mercy on your people.
Pray for the Soldiers
10,000 new reservists were called up today in order to switch out the other reservists who have been serving and fighting the past several weeks, giving them a chance to rest. They will be stationed all over the country. Please pray for the protection of these men and women, that God will strengthen their bodies, minds and spirits. May their hearts trust in the Sovereign God of Israel to carefully watch over them.
Ceasefire broken and hostilities ignite once again
Since yesterday when three rockets were shot from Gaza into Israel, all negotiations have broke down and both Hamas and the IDF are up in arms once again. There have been at least 80 rockets shot from Gaza into several regions across Israel, even reaching Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. It is still unclear at this point exactly what will come of this round of fighting. Please stand with us and pray for the protection of all innocent civilians in harms way. Pray for Israeli soldiers fighting and for the Palestinians to come out from the grip of Hamas’ control. Pray Scripture with us, “That they [enemies seeking to destroy the people of Israel] may know that You alone, whose name is the LORD, are the Most High over all the earth.” Psalm 83.
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
