Pray for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
Please pray for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is coming to the U.S. November 7-9. His mission is two-fold: to meet with American Jewish leaders, and to meet with Vice President Joe Biden. In part, Netanyahu will be assessing the U.S. political climate in the wake of the electoral tsunami expected to hit Congressional Democrats on Tuesday. Important questions are yet to be answered. Will Congress be more staunchly and consistently pro-Israel? Will President Obama and his administration cease being so unfriendly towards the Jewish State? Will both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue take more decisive action to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons as they seek to hasten the coming of the Twelfth Imam? Or will it be business as usual with regards to Middle East policy?
At the same time, the Prime Minister will be assessing the threat of radical Islam to the Jewish community here. “The assembly [of Jewish communities in the U.S.] takes place this time with the background of reports of an attempted attack on the Jewish community of Chicago,” Netanyahu said Sunday. “It really doesn’t matter if the target is a synagogue in Chicago, a railway station in Madrid or London, or Mumbai or Bali. We are facing a growing wave of Islamic extremist terror.”
Please pray for the PM and his advisors as they arrive — for their safety, for wisdom and discernment, for the Lord to bless them and make them “sons of Issachar, men who understood the times and knew what Israel should do” (1 Chron. 12:32).
