Since her founding in 1948, Israel has faced many threats. War and terrorism have taken their toll, and the price for her continued independence and freedom has too often been paid in Jewish blood.
But, despite painful losses, Israel has always prevailed. And I am convinced that one of the main reasons for this is that her righteous friends have been quick to raise their voices in prayer to God, the One who watches over Israel and "neither slumbers nor sleeps" (Psalm 121:4), for the welfare of the State of Israel and the Jewish people.
This Sunday, January 28, on The Fellowship's 2007 International Day of Prayer and Solidarity for Israel, you have an opportunity to unite with Christians worldwide in raising a chorus of prayer to God for Israel's security, well-being, and protection.
