As we prepare for our time of ministry in Israel, I found my heart resonating with Paul’s words, “My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power so that your faith might not rest on men’s wisdom, but on God’s power”. (1 Cor. 2: 4, 5). There is such a sense of urgency that these words of Paul be true for the whole ministry team. We desperately need the POWER and PRESENCE of the Lord to flow into us and into our Israeli and Arab sisters. Thank you for agreeing with us in prayer that the Holy Spirit:
- Will come to us in His power to heal, deliver, restore and redeem.
- He will bring healing and transformation through His Word (Lord let revelation and understanding come as we study your Word).
- He will give us a baptism of joy and laughter. (There is so much tension, fear and oppression in the land).
- He will give life-giving relationships to both the Arab and Israeli sisters (pray for unity and trust to be established).
- He will give us divine appointments and strategic connections with His people in the land.
- He will give to all of us divine health, protection and safety (Psalm 91).
- He will give travelling grace to all of us on planes, cars and buses.
Thank you, thank you for being our prayer covering. Recently as I was watching some footage on World War II, I realized that as the Body of Christ, those who pray are like the air coverage in a battle. The air coverage was strategic to the effectiveness of the troops on the ground. As our team goes to Israel, we are the troops on the ground, but those of you who pray and intercede give us the strategic cover in the spiritual realm. I know that as you wait upon the Lord, He will give you other issues to pray about.

“… As you help us by your prayers, then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious FAVOR granted us in answer to the prayers of many” 2 Cor. 1:11.
Thank you, and may His blessings abound in your lives. (Gen 12:1).
Joy and love,
Pastor Dotty Schmitt
