I’m back! I’m happy to report that both the move and my surgery went smoothly. Thanks to all who were praying … I felt the prayers covering my wife and I throughout.

I don’t have much to say in this first post back, other than to direct my reader’s attention to Psalm 122:6 and suggest that this might be a good time to heed its directive.

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.”

Chosen People Ministries — a mission to reach Jewish people with the Gospel — has reminded people in a recent newsletter that peace in the Middle East is possible with prayer. They quite rightly suggest that knowing more about current Israeli and Palestinian leaders can help us pray more effectively for them.
