This is a departure from the usual writers information I post on this blog. But Israel is on my heart. What better topic could any of us consider at this time? Pray about using your blogs, tweets, Facebook posts, and other to encourage prayer and support for Israel – however God leads you.
We are all only too aware of the unrelenting attacks on Israel. We know that in the last days all will turn on Israel. Are we seeing those storm clouds gather? And what can we do? Pray.
Pray for Israel. Pray for peace in Jerusalem. Pray for the men and women in Israel’s army. Pray for all the innocent people being put in harms way. Pray for Netanyahu to hear and obey God’s voice. Pray that as a nation we will stand with Israel. And pray for the people reaching out to help. One such group is Ministry to Israel. Michael and Gina Utterback, founders, has been dear friends of ours for many years. You can read about their ministry here. And I encourage you to “friend” their Facebook page to keep up on what is happening in Israel.
Here are some other links to help you keep up on what is happening and enable you to pray more specifically:

“Like a lion, Israel crouches and lies down;
like a lioness, who dares to arouse her?
Blessed is everyone who blesses you, O Israel,
and cursed is everyone who curses you.”
