Intercession in Action
Please pray for the numerous campaigns presenting the Jewish messiah Yeshua Hamashiach to the Jewish people. There is a growing interest in those video clips and we keep on praying that many Israelis can become followers of Christ. Pray especially for the protection of life and limb of our messianic brothers and sisters who are confronted with death threats because of these campaigns.
Congregation "City of Life"
Please pray for the Beener family, the pastors of the congregation „City of Life“ in Sderot. They are experiencing heavy violence and assaults by the Jewish orthodox community who invaded the building of the congregation and filmed the rooms. Pastor Michael Beener reported them to the police and now the whole process has been reversed and the congregation has to face the option that they might not be able to keep the building. Please pray that the police and the judges do not take sides, but defend the rights of the messianic congregation neutrally.
Pray for the consequences caused by the lockdown in Israel and in the Westbank. Both are facing an economic crisis, because there hasn't been any tourism for almost a year. We heard of many families who are suffering from hunger; they cannot buy the food they need any more (especially in the Bethlehem region). Lord, have mercy!
