Trouble in the Middle East

The Israeli military is preparing for a possible large-scale incursion in Gaza, in response to rockets that have been fired at Israeli settlements in Gaza and towns inside Israel by Palestinian militants. Israel will not launch the offensive in Gaza if the Palestinian Authority prevents further rocket attacks. Please pray that the Palestinian Authority is able to stop further attacks against Israel and its settlements in Gaza, and please pray that the Israeli military will not launch its incursion into Gaza.
