Hezbollah from Lebanon has attacked Israeli posts, and tensions are on the rise at the border, with renewed shelling and firing. As the Israel war against Hamas extends into a multi-front battle, Israel is facing trouble along its northern border with Lebanon. Israel and Lebanon have been involved in clashes along the border for the past few days, deepening unease over the possibility that the conflict will escalate. There has been trepidation among the people of Lebanon as they fear another war with Israel. Pray that the conflict will not escalate and the Lebanese will have a sigh of relief. Pray for them to receive the grace of God for new beginnings by their faith in Jesus Christ (The Bible, Job 8:7).
While traditional or historic Christian communities are left in relative peace to worship God, it is challenging for people to convert to Christianity from Islam. Muslims who convert to Christianity faces the threat of harsh Sharia law. Pray for this underground community of Jesus’s followers to know His presence as they quietly stand on their hidden faith. Prayer can be a powerful tool to protect and guide new Christian Believers on their spiritual journey. Let us pray and ask God to connect them with other like-minded Christians in fellowship, so that they may grow and thrive in their faith. (The Bible, 2 Corinthians 13:14).
