*According to Jerusalem post: http://www.jpost.com/Arab-Israeli-Conflict/Initial-report-Stabbing-attack-in-Jeruaslem-terrorist-subdued-423793

Certain roads into Jerusalem from particular Arab villages have been closed off.

Please we ask for urgent prayer. The city of Jerusalem is in chaos and Israelis across the country are in fear over the events of this past week. It seems that today’s attacks could have been planned. News and updates are still coming in. We know that God is in control. Please pray for the peace and healing of this nation who is being strongly attacked. We need the prayers, support and strength of the nations who stand for Israel.
