IDF Soldier Murdered in Arab Village:  Tomer Hazan, a 20-year-old soldier from Bat Yam, was murdered by an Arab co-worker.  The two worked at a restaurant together, and apparently, the Palestinian man lured Hazan back to his village under the pretenses of friendship.  The soldier’s body was found close to the man’s village and he was buried Friday afternoon.  Please pray for the young man’s family in their time of grief, that they will find their comfort in the LORD, the Prince of Peace.  Please also pray for the Palestinian man’s salvation.  Lastly, please pray that such attacks will not become prevalent, especially as tensions between Palestinians and Israelis are on the rise.  For more, see IDF Soldier Murdered

Former Syrian General Admits Assad Ordered Gas Attack:  A former Syrian General who defected earlier this year because he refused to gas the Syrian people, admitted that orders to attack with deadly Sarin gas came straight from the top of the regime.  The General, who has sought asylum in Jordan, replaced harmless diluted bleach in place of the Sarin gas in multiple attacks earlier in the civil war.  The situation in Syria continues to worsen as Russia is now heavily involved in a “deal” that would allow Assad to rid his regime of their chemical weapons, but is only buying time to transfer them to terrorist groups in Lebanon.  Please pray that Assad will be held responsible for the attacks that have killed so many people in Syria.  Please also pray that the world will not be fooled by his tactics, nor bullied into staying passive spectators as he murders his own people.  For more, see Syrian Gas Attack

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…
