It’s a very sad day in the world. Families are being removed one by one from the Gaza and West Bank areas of the Holy Land. They are being torn away from the Land which Hashem has promised them, and by their own people. Although there has been little actual violence, there has still been some. One woman even set herself on fire in order to resist. Please pray for the People of Destiny. Today a very sad day indeed.

The rabbis are asking all who would pray with and for Israel to pray Psalm 20 and Psalm 91 during these difficult times, especially today. I have them printed here for your convenience.

Psalm 20
For the Leader. A Psalm of David.
The LORD answer thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob set thee up on high;
Send forth thy help from the sanctuary, and support thee out of Zion;
Receive the memorial of all thy meal-offerings, and accept the fat of thy burnt-sacrifice; Selah
Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.
We will shout for joy in thy victory, and in the name of our God we will set up our standards; the LORD fulfil all thy petitions.
Now know I that the LORD saveth His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven with the mighty acts of His saving right hand.
Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will make mention of the name of the LORD our God.
They are bowed down and fallen; but we are risen, and stand upright.
Save, LORD; let the King answer us in the day that we call.

Psalm 91
O thou that dwellest in the covert of the Most High, and abidest in the shadow of the Almighty;
I will say of the LORD, who is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust,
That He will deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
He will cover thee with His pinions, and under His wings shalt thou take refuge; His truth is a shield and a buckler.
Thou shalt not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flieth by day;
Of the pestilence that walketh in darkness, nor of the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
A thousand may fall at Thy side, and ten thousand at Thy right hand; it shall not come nigh thee.
Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold, and see the recompense of the wicked.
For thou hast made the LORD who is my refuge, even the Most High, thy habitation.
There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy tent.
For He will give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
They shall bear thee upon their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Thou shalt tread upon the lion and asp; the young lion and the serpent shalt thou trample under feet.
‘Because he hath set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he hath known My name.
He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him, and bring him to honour.
With long life will I satisfy him, and make Him to behold My salvation.’
