Israel needs Another Chanukah Miracle—Pray for Rain!

Israel needs another Chanukah Miracle. If you have tuned into the news then you have heard that there is a raging fire in northern Israel. We had an extremely hot summer and the winter rains, which are usually in high gear by now, have not come. This is a fire is burning out of control. Already nearly 50 people are dead. We need rain. We need a miracle.

In between the time I sent out a cute Chanukah greeting this morning and the present, Israel has experienced her worst national disaster ever—and there is no end in site. The Prime Minister has declared a day of mourning for tomorrow.

“If we don’t get foreign assistance tonight, I doubt we will be able to control fire, and it will stop only at shores of the Mediterranean,” warned Haifa firefighter spokesman Hezi Levi. (jpost.com)

Take a moment right now and pray for rain in Israel. We know from scripture that rain is a blessing from heaven (Det. 11:14), and that when there is no rain, it can be a sign of judgment as in the days of Elijah and Ahab. Living in Israel, there is no question that as a nation we have forsaken the Lord. Now is the time for the Body of Believers to stand in the gap for her fallen elder brother, Israel. May your prayers not only bring physical rain, but spirtual as well. “And so, all Israel shall be saved.” (Rom. 11:26)

Lord, have mercy on Your people Israel.
