Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem – Oct 7, 2018

It was so wonderful to see some good friends serving with Eagles Wings. The event televised on God TV was Eagles Wings biggest event of this kind ever. The worship was amazing and the speakers were really good. I especially appreciated the heart of Michael Oren that came through as he shared some of his own story. The venue at the Haas Promenade was perfect, with a nice breeze and scattered clouds covering us until sunset. As I mentioned to some of you, I am volunteering for the next few days in support of their support of Israel.

The past few days were spent mostly “resting” in the Lord. I was blessed to visit the Narkis Street congregation and visit with a few friends there which I had not seen the week before. I have been rising early in the morning to greet the day at sunrise– many of you know I am not a morning person, so this is a special treat for me! And I had the opportunity to devour the book, True Stories of the Miracles of AZUZA STREET and Beyond by Tommy Welchel and Michelle P. Griffith. Wow! Beyond reading of testimonies of the miraculous, these stories are of mostly teenagers that were a part of the revival. Not just witnesses, but participants as God used them to heal others while they experienced the anointing of the leaders of that revival and the Shekinah glory cloud and fire. It’s powerful. Youth leaders would offer their young people a great gift to hear these stories and plant seeds for them to seek God’s visitation again, as prophesied for this day.

God continues to direct my steps. I met a young lady yesterday that is involved in a volunteer program for assisting harvesting in the north of Israel. I haven’t got the link for that one yet. I had signed up to volunteer for this a couple years ago, but was not able to come to Israel at that time. It was interesting, she approached me to ask if she knew me. Kindred spirits greeting one another in Jerusalem. I love it!

Thank you all for your continued prayers. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem– every day, as often as you can. Yes, there was a terror attack in the North of Israel yesterday, and the crazy fighting at the border of Gaza is still escalating. Many days I hear the jets flying over head to their destinations around Israel to patrol, and keep peace. But we know there can be no real man made peace, as hard as some men try to bring it to pass. Only God can give peace to Jerusalem, to Israel, and to all men. Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14:27
