The LORD is my strength and my shield;
heart trusted in Him, and I am helped;
my heart greatly rejoices,
with my song I will praise Him. Psalm 28:7
The members of Christians United for Israel
rejoice with the Shalit family as they welcome their son, Gilad, home after
more than five years of captivity under the terrorist arm of Hamas. The Psalms
sets forth the enduring pattern of turning to the Lord during our time of
trouble. The Lord is our rock, our fortress and our deliverer. We give
thanks to the Lord for He is good and His mercies endure forever.
We continue to pray for the safety of all
Israelis who live under the looming shadow of terror. May Zion be delivered
from those who wish to harm her and may the Almighty’s right hand continually
shelter her inhabitants.
I want to personally
thank the hundreds of thousands that have joined us in praying for Gilad’s safe
return and I ask that you continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
