Like many Americans and especially Christians, I was glued to the television for the latest news from Israel over the weekend. I am heartbroken at the loss of innocent life in Israel because of the attacks by Hamas in the last few days.
The Bible says Christians are to “pray for the peace of Jerusalem.” My personal family, my church family and our AFA family are praying for wisdom, courage, and unity in Israel so that this threat to the country’s existence can be dealt with swiftly.
As we pray that Almighty God will preserve the nation of Israel and its people, we know that Islamist groups like Hamas, Hezbollah, and the Taliban also oppress the many Christians who suffer under their radical ideologies. Please also pray for these dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
I want to encourage you to join with other believers in praying for the nation of Israel. Pray for the safety of the families who are facing danger at the hands of their enemy and the enemy of God. Pray for the leadership of Israel, that God will grant them His wisdom in protecting their nation and people.
I've also asked our team to keep the latest updates on Israel on our American Family News website. You can check it anytime at www.afn.net.
