DAY 28: PRAYER POINTS
» Pray for Caring of the Needy, Elderly and Homeless in the Land
¤ In addition to Israel having to use so much of her financial resources for defense purposes, welfare recipients have increased because so many Jewish families now find themselves without a major wage earner because of either death or disability due to the bombings.
Israel also continues to take in not only Jewish people making Aliyah and Jewish people needing rescue from oppressive governments (like 14,000+ Ethiopians of Operation Solomon in 1991 from Ethiopia and 8000 Ethiopians of Operation Moses in 1984 from Sudan), but also growing numbers of non-Jewish refugees from surrounding lands like Syria, Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan.
¤ Christian persecution in these lands by Islamic Extremists like Muslim Brotherhood and ISIS has brought many Christian refugees into Israel seeking safety and freedom to worship.
» Pray for the caring and healing of the brokenhearted and those in need.
