• Praise God for the abundant rains (and snow) that fell in Israel in December, raising the water levels of the Sea of Galilee.
  • Pray for Ariel Sharon’s family, friends and close government workers as the former Israeli Prime Minister passed away recently.
  •  Pray for Israel’s leaders as they meet often with John Kerry from the US, who is trying to foster a peace agreement with the Palestinian Authority.
  • Pray for a reversal of their position by US academic institutions that have placed a boycott on Israel’s academic institutions, an act of antisemitism.
  • Pray for the safety of Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers who come under attack as they are on guard, on missions or wait for transportation.
  • Pray for wisdom and safety as Israel protects her borders against such dangers as the tunnels recently destroyed in Gaza that were being used to smuggle weapons into Gaza from Egypt.
