Psalms Against Rockets

Since May 10th over 800 rockets have been fired so far towards Israeli cities targeting civilian population. Israel yet again faces the harsh reality of having to defend its self against enemies that wish to see it annihilated.

As red alerts sound across Israel even as we write this, we are preparing for a very tense Shabbat.

What does Shabbat look like under rocket fire?

In Hebrew there’s an expression Israelis use: “Tehilim neged tilim”, meaning: Psalms against rockets.

Many Israelis while seeking shelter from barrage of rockets and all throughout this military conflict find solace in prayer, specifically praying the book of psalms.

In Psalms is where we find an abundance of promises to lean on. It speaks of God being our protector, our shield and refuge. That is what Israelis pray when facing danger and rocket fire.

As believers and followers of Yeshua, trusting in His power and glory, while relying on the power of prayer, we can firmly stand on Psalm 91, proclaiming God’s word over our lives, even in the midst of life threatening situations.

“Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” — Psalm 91:1-2

As believers in Yeshua we know the power of His protection, because we have witnessed countless of His miracles in our lives.

Join us in prayer for the peace of Jerusalem and proclaiming Psalm 91 over the protection of Israel. Even in these difficult days, we have hope in Yeshua, we walk in the joy of the Lord knowing He is our protection and our life.

Yeshua is our protector because “we dwell in the shelter of the Most High”.

We also pray for you from Israel; whenever you gave challenges and difficulties in life, know Yeshua is your shalom — peace and shelter.

May God bless you and keep you, and may this Shabbat be full of the joy of the Lord, even in the face of trials.
