Egypt and Israel

July 31, 2011

From israel today Magazine:

Meanwhile, tensions between Israel and post-revolution Egypt are again rising after Muslim gunmen bombed the Sinai natural gas pipeline on Saturday, the fifth such attack since Mubarak’s ouster. . . . Israel receives about 40 percent of its natural gas from that pipeline, and having it out of order is setting the stage for an energy cost crisis in the Jewish state.

The latest pipeline attack has reignited the debate over whether or not Israel should continue to purchase natural gas from Egypt, considering that the Jewish state has recently discovered its own massive reserves.

Israel buys natural gas from Egypt as part of the Camp David Accords that brought peace between the two nations.

L&B’s own Torre Bissell was one of the intercessors the Holy Spirit used during the Camp David negotiations between Israel and Egypt. The destruction of the pipeline is a strike against peace.–JW

Today’s news events make me wonder if we are at a pivotal moment in history. The demonstrations across the Middle East, the US economy, the UN plans to vote on a Palestinian state, and the natural disasters are all evidence of a changing world.
You are our sure foundation. Our feet are grounded in praise. We testify to Your power and give thanks to Your name.
We pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Peace be within her walls and prosperity within her palaces. We say it again: Peace! Peace! Peace!

Romans 8:35-39

July 31, 2011

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? (Romans 8:35)
      Lord, none of these are able to separate us from your love for us. Help us to endure all things for the sake of your love for us.

As it is written: “For your sake we are killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” (Romans 8:36)
      Holy Spirit, it doesn’t matter what others think of us, help us to know ourselves through the eyes of Jesus love.

Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. (Romans 8:37)
      Father, please help us with Paul to be able to say: “Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:11-13)

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
      Amen, Lord Jesus. Amen.

A word received: Pray for my people to return to me — I AM the God of mercy.

Zechariah 8:16-17 (NKJV)
These are the things you shall do:
Speak each man the truth to his neighbor;
Give judgment in your gates for truth, justice, and peace;
Let none of you think evil in your heart against your neighbor;
And do not love a false oath.
For all these are things that I hate,’
Says the LORD.”

May it be so in Washington, D.C., dear Lord. Truth! Justice! Peace! Amen.

Wisdom for national leaders

July 30, 2011

Esther 8:15-16 (NKJV)
So Mordecai went out from the presence of the king in royal apparel of blue and white, with a great crown of gold and a garment of fine linen and purple; and the city of Shushan rejoiced and was glad. The Jews had light and gladness, joy and honor.

O Lord, grant our national leaders a mantle of manifold wisdom regarding the economy. O for light and gladness, joy and honor within the United States. Amen.

Psalm 76:7-12

July 30, 2011

You, yourself, are to be feared; and who may stand in your presence when once you are angry? (Psalm 76:7)
      Help us to have a holy fear of you, LORD, for we are sinners in your sight.

You caused judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared and was still, (Psalm 76:8 )
      Jesus, we know that you will be our judge — we plead with you for your mercy.

When God arose to judgment, to deliver all the oppressed of the earth. (Psalm 76:9)
      Father, have mercy on the oppressed in the land — move our hearts with your compassion.

Surely the wrath of man shall praise you; with the remainder of wrath you shall gird yourself. (Psalm 76:10)
      Lord, there is much wrath in the land and very little light — have mercy on us.

Make vows to the LORD your God, and pay them; let all who are around him bring presents to him who ought to be feared. (Psalm 76:11)
      Holy Spirit, help us keep our vows.

He shall cut off the spirit of princes; he is awesome to the kings of the earth. (Psalm 76:12)
      Jesus, move through the halls of Congress, the Courts, and the White House and display your awesome power there.
