“Stand by Me.” Not just a song, this is what the children of Israel ask of us as they go through this very sad, scary and difficult time. What will our response be to the pictures of the hostage children of Hamas, as young as 6 months old, that flash onscreen? Today, take your stand of faith for them. Intercede at the throne of God on their behalf. Stand with them for their freedom and safety. They need our support.
