Please Pray


Maoz Partners and Precious Friends,

Abbas in the UNThis is an urgent prayer request.  In order for a Palestinian state to come into being, it must get nine votes out of 15 in the Security Council.  Secondly the resolution must not be vetoed by any of the five permanent members - the U.S., Britain, France, China and Russia.
The U.S. has declared that it will veto such a resolution if nine or more members vote for a Palestinian state.  It will be much better for the U.S. if there are less than nine votes - as the the U.S. would then not have to use its veto - which will further alienate the Arab and Moslem world.
So far, these nations have declared they will vote for a Palestinian state:  China, Russia, Brazil, India, Lebanon, South Africa.  Now Nigeria and Gabon have just announced they too will vote for a Palestinian state.  That makes eight states.  The nations that have said they will vote against the UN declaring such a state are the U.S., Britain, France, Germany.  That leaves three states: Bosnia, Colombia and Portugal undecided.  If the Palestinians can get one of those three to vote for them, they will have the nine votes - a serious blow to the U.S. and Israel, and the Western countries.
When we see these close battles - where one or two votes could change history - we can know there is a fierce battle in the heavenlies.  And we are commanded of God to stand in the gap.  We can have a part in God's purposes by praying His Will be done.  And we know in this issue from hundreds of Bible verses that God has given this land to Israel.
Please pray specifically that Bosnia, Colombia and Portugal will NOT vote for a Palestinian state.

No one knows when the vote will take place in the Security Council.  It could be a matter of days or weeks.
       
PLEASE PRAY,

God knows the desires of your heart (2)

God is really amazing. He amazes me every time. I was planning to buy myself a laptop, because I really needed one. I have a PC which I used and which was very faithful to me :) As I started my Master's Degree I needed a laptop, because I had to go to the city where I'm studying every weekend.

I know (because I've experienced it) that when you need something then you have to sow a seed first, on which God can turn water. So my sister who had to write her diploma paper and needed a laptop to work on Photoshop, Web design, etc. more than I needed it then. I really wanted to help her, so I took the opportunity to bless somebody with the exact thing I need and let God take my wish over. Thus I decided to give her some money. She bought a Dell and she wrote an awesome diploma paper and still uses it with such a blessing. She is a very talented "Photoshopist", web designer, journalist, etc. I was very happy for her and I knew God knows the time when I'll have my lap…

Jesus is coming soon, be prepared

The previous week I was so overwhelmed with my tasks at the university and the exams. I'm a "born" perfectionist and I always like to do everything the best way I can. I was so busy that I didn't have time to do my homework the way I wanted to do them and it was such a big burden. I didn't sleep enough and I was always thinking how to work everything out. I was burnt-out at the end of the week when I had to go to the courses and exams. My sisters tried to encourage me, but I was exhausted. God each and every time gave me encouragements, but I still felt the pressure of these things. As I was taking a bath, I listened to a sermon on my cell phone (I usually like to do that... hihi). Through that sermon God spoke to me and I was really touched by what the preacher said about grace. A sentence caught my attention, it was like this: "The Christians should hang on a rope upon the hell for a few minutes to see and realize what God rescued us from." He also to…
