Called to Pray and the Latest From Joel C. Rosenberg

Often God will wake me up in the middle of the night to pray for various things. Night before last, unaware of what was happening in Israel (because I’ve been on vacation and unplugged from television and most social media), I woke up at 3 am. God nudged me to pray for Israel. This was a little out of the ordinary for me. I prayed. Then He nudged me again, so I prayed in more detail for protection and so on. The next morning, I saw where Yael Eckstein, a messianic Jew from Israel, had posted–at the very minute I was up praying– about the rocket attacks on Israel. God was urging me to pray for something I knew absolutely nothing about. I tell you this to stress the importance of intimacy with God–listening to His voice and following through! He sees. He knows. He cares. He will never leave or forsake us. Prayer is our greatest defense against any enemy attack (physical or spiritual) and ushers in rescue!

Normally, I don’t post about politics or current events, but considering the happenings in Israel, I’m re-posting Joel C. Rosenberg’s post for today to raise awareness. I invite you to read and join me in continued prayer for Israel.”I (God) will bless those who bless you (Israel), and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” Genesis 12:3
