I, Matthew, extend my full support to the State of Israel. When the children of Israel were faced with annihilation in ancient Persia, Esther accepted the challenge to stand in the gap for her people:
"For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your
father's family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?" (Esther 4:14).
The Jerusalem Prayer Team is calling on believers worldwide to petition G-D Almighty for a shield of protection over the House of Israel and the Jewish people that are in harms way. I will pray that the armies of Heaven will hold the powers of darkness at bay. I pray a prayer shield of protection over Israel and the Jewish people today. I pray that G-D will give you
the same strength, knowledge, understanding, and wisdom with which He fit Kings and Prophets of old for battle. I pray for the peace of Jerusalem according to Psalm 122:6, and for the safe return of the young men held captive by Hezbollah terrorists, and for their families.
