Israel Needs Your Prayers...Right Now.

As of the time of writing, Ariel Sharon finds himself in a critical condition whilst the doctors fight to save his life. Israel Radio Channel Two is playing slow ballads - never a good sign.

This man, like him or not, has caused an earthquake throughout the Middle-East. His decision to disengage from Gaza and then from the Likud will cause reverberations that will be felt for many years to come. I’m not sure whether any of those at the top have really thought about what would happen to the country were the Prime Minister to become incapacitated, either through natural or unnatural causes. I damn well hope some plans have been formulated.

The Palestinians elections might or might not take place and then no-one knows what will happen if Hamas wins the majority vote. Meanwhile, Iran is making dangerous noises and the Hezbollah is rearing its ugly head in the north of the country.

If ever there were a time to get in touch with the Big Guy Upstairs, now is it.
Whoever you are, wherever you are, please add a special prayer for Israel because, right now, our beloved Israel needs as much Divine help as she can possibly get.
