March 26th – Sunday

But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, not be troubled. – 1 Peter 3:14

President Jimmy Carter served as the witness for the signing of the Egypt-Israel peace treaty in Washington, D.C., on this day in 1979. Fierce conflict between the two nations had been ongoing since Israel’s creation in 1948 and, after many territorial disputes and bloody battles, Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin began signaling that they were ready for peace in 1976. Intense negotiations began between the two leaders, which would continue for two years. When the agreement was finally ready, they called upon President Carter to serve as the official witness for the signing of their peace treaty. Finding solutions to conflict and division is a difficult task, pray today for the officials in the U.S. government as they seek to bridge the disputes and opposing ideologies at home and abroad.

As the Lord leads, pray with us…

  • For the president and his ambassadors as they seek to strengthen relationships with international leaders.
  • For discernment for Secretary Antony Blinken as he oversees diplomatic efforts and addresses concerns with other countries.
