President Trump and the Middle East

This coming Sunday, President Trump goes to the Arab, Islamic, and American conference in Saudi Arabia. Next day he goes to Israel. He has been methodically trying to lay the foundation for a peace deal since his election, by meeting with many Middle East leaders.

All the anonymous leaks, the shrill witch hunt in the press, I am coming to suspect is spiritual warfare. There is clearly an effort to damage Trump and impede his efforts for peace.

Meanwhile Trump has done so much good. Unemployment is the lowest in ten years. Over half a million jobs have been created. Think about it–half a million families with income on which to build hope and a future. The Fed just released economic figures for the last quarter–4.1% growth rate when annualized. Incredible.

But these successes are ignored.

I ask you to pray for President Trump’s protection and to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Press in.

Psalm 122:6-9 (NASB)
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May they prosper who love you.
“May peace be within your walls,
And prosperity within your palaces.”
For the sake of my brothers and my friends,
I will now say, “May peace be within you.”
For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
I will seek your good.
