Hamas, the militant group that controls Gaza, took responsibility late Tuesday for having fired up to 40 long-range rockets, some of them intercepted over Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. The Israeli government approved the call-up of 1,500 reservists, mainly Home Front Command and aerial defense units, and said later that it had authorized the military to mobilize as many as 40,000 additional reservists if necessary for a possible ground invasion.
Ministries such as Maoz Israel have asked for prayer.
Please PRAY for God to protect all of us – civilians and soldiers. Pray for wisdom and courage for our leaders. Pray against pressure from the international community on Israel to stop the operation, by this [sic] allowing terrorists to re-arm.
Thank you for your prayers.
