“The LORD is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid?”
Acts of terror around the world seem to be occurring at an increasing rate. Mention cites like Paris, London, and Manchester and one of the first things to come to mind is the recent tragedies in these locations. While it would be easy to give in to fear and despair, as people of faith we know our God is bigger and more powerful than those whose goal is destruction and death. Let us cling to our sovereign God and the certain hope He offers us as we lift these requests in prayer.
On June 3, three radical Islamist terrorists rammed a van into a crowd of pedestrians in London and then went on a stabbing spree. All told, 8 people were killed and another 48 were injured. Pray for those grieving these unthinkable losses and for the recovery of those wounded. “Say to those with fearful hearts, ‘Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you’” (Isaiah 35:4).
A Hamas terror tunnel was recently discovered under a school run by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA). Thank God that it was found before it was used to carry out acts of terror, and pray that God continues to protect the people of Israel. “I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed” (Psalm 57:1).
At the request of Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas, Israel has agreed to decrease the electricity it supplies to Gaza, which is ruled by the terrorist group Hamas. In response, Hamas has warned of “disastrous and dangerous” consequences. Pray for God’s shalom, peace, to reign in this tense situation. “‘Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,’ says the LORD, who has compassion on you” (Isaiah 54:10).
Praise God that the U.S. Justice Department recently arrested two men tied to the terror group Hezbollah who had been plotting attacks against Americans and Israelis in the U.S. “The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him” (Nahum 1:7).
Pray for the smooth transition of the brand-new Israelis who have arrived in the Holy Land on recent Fellowship Freedom Flights from Russia, France, Melilla, Venezuela, and Uruguay. “Therefore say: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will gather you from the nations and bring you back from the countries where you have been scattered, and I will give you back the land of Israel again’” (Ezekiel 11:17).
