State of the Middle East

It is simply a tragedy what is unfolding in most of the Middle East. 52 million people have been displaced from their homes as a result of the war in Syria. The issues of refugees is now hitting world headlines as those fleeing are desperately trying to reach the shores of Europe for refuge and safety. War and instability are wreaking havoc in almost every country surrounding Israel – Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and others. Yet, somehow, smack in the middle of this chaos the tiny country of Israel (a sworn enemy of most of these countries) remains protected and continues to thrive. It is amazing to think of the odds. It is also scary to think about the potential danger that is waiting on Israel’s doorstep. This is why we must pray without ceasing for the life and vitality of Israel and her people. Please pray for a hedge of protection on all borders and that the armies of God will defend this nation. Please also pray for the innocent lives of men, women, children and elderly who are subject to such horrendous outcomes of war and hatred spreading throughout the Middle East. May we intercede for a great harvest in the Muslim world.
