“The Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in people who are trustworthy.”
Proverbs 12:22

This week has been another week where lies have been spread about Israel and there has been a need for Christians to defend God’s people with Truth.

Unfortunately, the lies being told go further than simple mistakes or misunderstandings. Out of the mouth the heart speaks and the lying lips highlight that hearts have been turned against the things of God. The institutions that proclaim themselves to be defenders of human rights and upholders of international law are now neglecting their own principles and duties in favour of attacking Israel.

The Bible warns against people who call evil good and good evil. This is exactly what we are seeing in our world today. We must all stand up for God’s truth. We must stand up for the things God loves. God loves Israel, and even if the world is against her, we will always stand on Israel’s side just as God is always on their side.

• Pray for us here at Christians United for Israel, that we will have discernment and wisdom when tackling these lies. We want to be “people who are trustworthy” as the Scripture above says. Pray also that our posts will not be restricted online as this is happening currently and we are finding it harder to reach people due to social media restrictions.

• Pray for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). This week they put their lives on the line to defend the Jewish people from the threat of terror, and they did an exemplary job in difficult circumstances, keeping civilians safe on both sides. Sadly, one Israeli soldier was killed in Jenin, and another was killed by a Hamas terrorist who carried out a shooting attack. Pray for the families of these fallen soldiers and pray for the protection of all IDF personnel.

• Pray for the families affected by the horrific terror attack in Tel Aviv this week. Seven Israeli civilians were injured when they were struck by a vehicle and then stabbed by a terrorist. Some of those who were injured are currently in a critical condition. Sadly, a pregnant Israeli woman lost her baby in the attack. Please pray for healing to the victims, both physical and emotional.

Thank you for praying with us this week. We pray that next week will be one of peace for Israel.
