Tensions High in Jerusalem

Over the past two weeks, tensions between Israeli police and Muslim worshipers at the Al Aqsa Mosque have been very high. Tensions are now spilling into other parts of Jerusalem, namely the Old City, where Jewish organizers plan to hold an Israeli flag march in predominately Arab neighborhoods. Hamas & Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) have threatened to attack with rockets if such a “provocation” takes place. The overlapping of Passover and Ramadan have also created higher tensions than usual. Please continue to pray for peace in Jerusalem! Please also pray that police will be able to keep the calm guided by the Lord’s wisdom. Lastly, please continue to pray for a peaceful Passover and Ramadan season in Israel!
