Verse of the Day: Isaiah chapter 41:10 - The Lord says fear not, for I am with you. Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. I will help you. I will uphold you is my righteous right hand. 

Prayer Request:
Praying for the people of Israel that they would call out to their God, that they would call out and ask him for help and for mercy. We're asking for mercy for our hostages, that the Lord would set them free, that he would set them free physically, spiritually, emotionally, in every way, Lord, that they would bring them back, and he would restore them to life, to their families.
Pray that the believers there would also be strengthened to keep on serving.
