Israel Under Attack!

Shrapnel found today

As I write this, over 700 rockets have fallen in Israel. Several have fallen near our home. Three Israeli citizens have been killed. A forest fire now rages in the forest outside of Jerusalem.

Our younger daughter and I were caught in the rocket-fire while out for a walk and had to take shelter in a building for almost 1/2 hour while the rockets were shot down above our heads by the Iron Dome. Some rockets were not shot down and landed on a home and also a highrise apartment building not far away.

The IDF closed a number of roads near the Gaza border and instructed farmers to stop all work near the border on Monday afternoon. Additionally, train traffic between Ashkelon and Beersheba and to Sderot, Netivot and Ofakim was temporarily halted on Monday afternoon by order of security officials.

Please keep Israel and her citizens in your prayers!

    Rivka, you and your family have been on my mind and in my prayers since yesterday. i also held a special reading and prayer for Israel this morning in my Amidah prayer group of Beithlechem Messianic Congregation, CA. when i saw the name Ashdod i immediately startled thinking of you, so i am glad to hear from you now! so much hatred and evil wishing around, so many false stories and lies, so much ignorance and confusion…May our Lord be your shield and comfort, may this time be a spiritual awakening for many many people in Israel and may He lead Israel out of the Valley of death unto green pastures and there show Israel’s enemies who the Only True God, the God of Israel is! in continued prayer Ingrid

I pray for salvation for those people that donโ€™t know you. May they hear the good news about Your Son Jesus Christ. Father God please protect the innocent people around this war. In Jesus Christ name I pray Amen.
