Israel will respond to the increased attacks, and it's possibility the violence could ratchet up dramatically. Israel's Chief of General Staff has already warned that the situation is "very fragile and may deteriorate rapidly."
Israel can't allow terrorists from Gaza to continue launching attacks against its citizens. At the same time, an attack against Gaza could result in retaliation from Hezbollah in Lebanon. The situation is tense.
And that makes it a critical time for us to pray.
- Pray for wisdom on the part of Israel's leadership to know how best to respond.
- Pray for the physical protection of those who live under the threat of these terrorist attacks.
- Pray for the followers of Christ in Israel, Gaza, and Lebanon. Help them to be bold in their witness for Him.
