" Pray for Israel" Community Unites in prayer for Israel Tuesday evening at Harp Commons

BEDFORD - OCTOBER 11, 2023 - A prayer vigil for Israel was held Tuesday evening at Harp Commons organized by the Sherwood Oaks Christian Church.

This comes after the country has come under attack over the weekend. Many have referred to the attacks as Israel's September 11th.

About 20 people showed up to offer prayers for the country, residents, and military fighters who are defending the country. This included the Americans that are in danger, and many already killed by the conflict.

Bedford resident Tim Thompson has traveled to Israel in the past . Some Bedford residents have planned trips this year, however due to threats and issues and rulings by the Beit HaMishpat HaElyon put those plans on hold. This is Israel's Supreme Court.

Other political unrest was higher than normal before the surprise attack.

Pastor Warren Crawford read the following scripture from Psalms 91:

91 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

14 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.

15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

Those attending plan to continue to pray until some kind of resolution to the current conflict can be reached. However, as commanded by the bible prayers are offered daily.
