U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken is in Israel today to discuss the possibility of a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas to release hostages.

On Tuesday, in Doha, Qatar, the secretary of state discussed a temporary cease-fire and more humanitarian aid for Palestinians with Qatari and Egyptian leaders.

Secretary Blinken said, “We will be working as hard as we possibly can to try to get an agreement so that we can move forward with not only a renewed but an expanded agreement on hostages and all the benefits that would bring with it.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for Secretary Blinken as he discusses the possible ceasefire-for-hostage deal with Israeli officials.
  • For the president and his foreign advisors as they seek to influence Middle Eastern leaders.
  • For the peace of Jerusalem and for discernment for the ministers and governing officials of Israel.
