editor - 16 November 2023

Pray for Israel with the words of Psalm 27

“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? (…) Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident.”

Pray for the commanders of the IDF

The war has been going on for more than three weeks now and is expanding. Pray that the commanders will make the right decisions. That civilian casualties will be minimized and that Israeli soldiers will be able to defend the people in the best way possible. Pray that the terrorist organization Hamas will be eliminated as effectively as possible.

Pray for the hostages

That they may put their hope in God, that no harm will be done to them and that they will be released soon. You can also pray by name for the hostages.
