“I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted.”
This is a momentous week in Israel. Tomorrow is Yom HaZikaron, Israel Memorial Day, a solemn time to remember the soldiers killed in wars throughout Israel’s history as well as all Israelis who have died in terrorist campaigns against the Israeli people. The day after the mood will change dramatically with Yom HaAtzmaut, Israel Independence Day, when Israelis will celebrate the 70th anniversary of her founding. Yom HaAtzmaut especially reminds us that what God says, He will accomplish – a truth that should offer us shalom, peace, no matter what we’re facing.
Praise God for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for Israel’s existence and safety over the years – as well as for family and friends who are still grieving these losses. And praise God for Israel’s 70th anniversary this week, a fulfillment of divine prophecy. “I will bring you from the nations and gather you from the countries where you have been scattered – with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm … ” (Ezekiel 20:34).
On the heels of another chemical weapons attack on civilians in Syria, please pray for God’s mighty hand of protection on the countless Syrians in the line of fire. And pray for world leaders responding to this ongoing and bloody civil war. “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10).
Over the past several weekends, thousands of Palestinians on the Israeli-Gaza border have been rioting and protesting the existence of Israel. Pray for an end to the violence and for the protection of the Israeli people. “But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you” (Psalm 5:11).
Pray for the loved ones of Jeremy Dahan, the Jewish man who was recently murdered in his Paris apartment, the second violent attack against Jewish people in France in recent weeks. Pray especially for Dahan’s wife, who is pregnant with their first child. “Keep me safe, Lord, from the hands of the wicked; protect me from the violent, who devise ways to trip my feet” (Psalm 140:4).
After the recent announcement that an Iranian drone that entered Israel’s airspace earlier this year was carrying explosives, pray fervently for the protection of Israel and her people. “My God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior – from violent people you save me” (2 Samuel 22:3).
