Pray for Christians Targeted by Ultra-Orthodox Jews

[223] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Messianic Jews.

Messianic Jews are requesting prayer after a meeting center and some congregants’ homes were targeted by ultra-Orthodox Jews recently in south Israel. On May 4, protesters connected with the anti-missionary organization Yad L’Achim created a disturbance outside the meeting center and later continued their protest outside the homes of the center’s founder, Albert Knoester, and another member. The protesters broke windows and caused other damage, frightening children who were in the homes during the attacks. Pray for the protection of Messianic Jews in south Israel and for the children who were frightened by the attacks. Pray for justice in this situation and that the protesters will acknowledge their guilt and turn to the Lord.
