The Israeli response comes at the height of movement of goods, funds and building materials for the rehabilitation of the thousands of homes and buildings damaged or destroyed during the summer fighting. It “joins” the closure of the Rafah crossing on the Egyptian side, and is in practice totally disconnects Gaza from the rest of the world. Hamas has already asked Egypt to open the crossing on its side, in order to prevent a humanitarian disaster. – YNETNEWS; All crossings closed, Gaza is totally isolated from the world
My prayers tonight go out to my Christian brethren, and all the people of Gaza. The enemy desires to see this part of the body totally destroyed: Did you know some of the earliest Churches in Christendom were/are located in this part of the world? I don’t believe God will permit the enemy to wipe-out this part of Jesus’ body, but they are suffering terribly, and have been for over 60 years. If that knowledge doesn’t touch you deeply and drive you to pray, you need to check yourself, to determine if you are truly abiding in Christ.
(A prayer for deliverance from Psalm 143)
Hear my prayer, O Lord;
give ear to my supplications!
In thy faithfulness answer me, in thy righteousness!
Enter not into judgment with thy servant;
for no man living is righteous before thee.
For the enemy has pursued me;
he has crushed my life to the ground;
he has made me sit in darkness like those long dead.
Therefore my spirit faints within me;
my heart within me is appalled.
Make haste to answer me, O Lord!
My spirit fails!
Hide not thy face from me,
lest I be like those who go down to the Pit.
Let me hear in the morning of thy steadfast love,
for in thee I put my trust.
Teach me the way I should go,
for to thee I lift up my soul.
