Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! "May they be secure who love you! Peace be within your walls and security within your towers!" - Psalm 122:6-7
According to the Jerusalem Post, 420 rockets have been fired at Israel from Gaza since Wednesday when the Israeli military started Operation Pillar of Defense to remove terrorists.
The violence has started to escalate as both sides mobilize.
Fox News has reported, "The army said as many as 30,000 troops could be drafted. Military officials said the moves were preparations for a possible ground operation, but no decision has been made on whether to enter Gaza."
If a ground war is launched, there could be significant casualties so please join in me in praying for the following:
- Pray that civilian casualties will be minimal.
- Pray that people on both sides of this conflict will learn to forgive each other and come to know Jesus as Savior and Lord.
- Pray that government officials will make wise decisions.
- Pray for people injured in the violence to experience physical, emotional and spiritual healing.
