Many thousands of Gazans have died, and there is much destruction to the infrastructure. The Hamas strikes in Israel triggered a catastrophic war in the region. Israel has now announced a complete siege of Gaza, effectively blocking electricity, food, and water supply. One can only imagine how life would be for residents of the narrow strip caught in the crossfire of warring powers. About three million people have been forced to flee their homes in the Gaza Strip as heavy Israeli bombardments continue to hit the Palestinian enclave, according to the U.N. Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to wipe out the Hamas group completely. Pray for a cease-fire in Gaza and Hamas to surrender and give up their arms. Pray that the refugees will get immediate aid and call on the name of the Lord Jesus for relief and protection (The Bible, Job 11:13).
