“And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed (descendents) after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God. (Genesis 17:8)
Dear Praying Friends,
This one thing we are certain of….we know beyond a shadow of a doubt what Israel’s future is because the Word of God does not hide it but makes it plain for all the world to see. Regardless of the UN vote on the Palestinian’s bid for statehood, the only vote that truly matters is the one the LORD cast long ago in the covenant He made with Abraham and re-affirmed by the prophets down through the ages. 
STILL, as Watchmen we are commanded to PRAY for Israel.
Yesterday, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu left for the USA  where he will address the United Nations ahead of the anticipated vote on the Palestinian Authority’s bid for recognition as an independent state.  During the course of the past several months there has been much jockeying/pleading behind the scenes in an effort to persuade the PA to stop their bid.  All to no avail.  However, we know that the LORD is a Master Strategist Whose moves are always perfect (remember PHAROAH!).  Nothing good will ever come of efforts whose purpose is the destruction of Israel.  The LORD has a plan!
*Please pray that the Spirit of Divine Wisdom and Truth would come upon PM Netanyahu and that he would be filled with boldness and authority as he addresses the UN assembly and that he would simply be a mouthpiece to speak ‘what thus saith the LORD’ concerning Israel. 
*Pray that there would be a “hand-writing on the wall” moment and that everyone present would be filled with the fear and awe of the One True Living God…the God of Israel.  
*Pray that Israel’s borders would be safe from all breaches and attempts of infiltration from without and terror attacks from within.
*Pray that the nation of Israel would see clearly and acknowledge openly where their help comes from and that it is not from allies and friends.   
Thank you for your Faithfulness to keep Israel ever on your lips before The Throne of Grace.
Blessings from Jerusalem,
