Israel Declares War After Devastating Terrorist Attack from Hamas

Breaking news: shocking and cowardly attacks by the terrorist group Hamas have sparked an all-out war in Israel. 

Over 900 people (including 11 Americans) are dead, thousands are wounded and the terrorists are threatening to execute innocent hostages on TV. 

Israel has responded by formally declaring war and has vowed “mighty vengeance” on the terrorists responsible for this atrocity.  

This could spark the largest armed conflict in the Middle East we’ve seen.

Scary stuff. 

Our hearts are with the innocent lives caught amidst the turmoil overseas. 

Please join me in praying for our troops around the world, who defend our way of life and keep us safe. 

Leave a prayer, or your thoughts, down in the comments below. I'd love to hear from you.

Before I go…

I want to congratulate you once again on the rock-solid decision you made to invest in your preparedness education and gear. 

You saw what was coming and you took action. While other people feel adrift in a sea of uncertainty, you have the confidence and the peace of mind that comes from being prepared to take care of yourself and your family no matter what happens. 

Hats off to you. Thank you for being part of the 4Patriots family.

To your survival, 

Frank Bates

P.S. Rest assured, the 4Patriots team and I will do everything in our power to make sure that smart, patriotic Americans like you are supplied with the life-saving resources that give you peace of mind in these uncertain times.

    I was wondering if you could send solar generators, survival food, radios, flashlights, and other survival items to Israelis stranded in their homes near the border and also to IDF units patrolling hostile borders near Gaza.

    Whatever you can do would be greatly and wholeheartedly appreciated. Thank you.

    “Cry For the Children “
    Broken and weeping, in a dark place
    They don’t know who to trust, don’t know their way
    Your heart is breaking because you can’t get to them
    Cry out to Jesus today
    Jesus can get to them when no one else can
    Faith is strong, stronger than man
    Your faith is going to help them when all else fails
    Cry out to Jesus today
    Your family is your priority
    The world wants to steal them and take them away
    You must point them to Jesus, get them to Him to stay
    Cry out to Jesus today
    So keep your faith strong, as strong as you can
    Your faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God
    While you keep on believing and holding to His hand
    Cry for the children today….

    Who Is The Greatest?
    Who could be the greatest among us? Could it be our neighbor or a loved one? Could it be the president of the United States? Who could it be? Maybe an actor or singer? Who do you think the greatest person is?
    In essence the person that is the greatest is the least of us all. Being the most humble and the least educated than anyone. This person is completely dependent on someone else to survive.
    Maybe you question how could this be? The one that is the greatest among us is the least of all. This person has a tender and forgiving heart. This person is trusting and full of love, joy and faith. You can see the love in their face and eyes when they look to you. They love you no matter what you do.
    The greatest among us is the weakest and most innocent. This loving and trusting person, thinks you’re the greatest in the whole world and looks up to you.
    This person doesn’t know, they are the greatest in Jesus’ eyes. Most of the world doesn’t know it either.
    The greatest among us is a little child. A miracle from God. A child’s faith and love alone is an open road straight to the heart of Jesus.
    Take care of our children, America.

    Have you ever looked into a three year old’s face when they closed their eyes and bowed their head in prayer? Have you ever listened closely to the words they were praying? Jesus has.

    Red, yellow, black or white
    They are precious in His sight
    Jesus loves the little children of the world

    “No one has yet realized the wealth of sympathy, kindness, generosity and tender-heartedness hidden in the soul and heart of a child”

  • Sandra - October 16, 2023

    I pray for all mankind and especially for all families who lost loved ones. What just happened is evil. It must be stopped . This is not Gods way. The world needs peace and kindness towards each other. The devil must be destroyed! I pray that will happen soon. I pray all God loving people will stick together to destroy evil.. I also pray that soon we will have leadership back in our own country., Our wonderful country is a mess with this administration. We need change back to our freedoms this country is founded on. We need to believe and pray for peace and destruction of the devil.

  • Stanley Shalett - October 16, 2023

    I’ve been your satisfied customer for the past several months. Israel is a desert country now at war with Hamas. Under those circumstances, I think your solar generators and other related equipment would certainly help those who are without electricity, food, purified water, radios, and flashlights. It would be a great help to civilians and Israeli outposts patrolling hostile borders. I would greatly appreciate it if you could contact the Israeli authorities to see what could be done.

  • Sheryl Edlund-Herres - October 16, 2023

    I believe Biden came into Office with the intension of bankrupting this Great Country! Think about him 1) allowing illegal immigrants to enter w/o being vettied to assure we know who is coming into country, 2) the extreme amount of funds to have to feed, find housing, transport them to others cities, 3) stopping our gas line, from Alaska and yet we have to pay for gas from China and the.MiddleEast, etc.

    As a result, we have little to no financial resources
    to provide asstistance to Isreal.

  • Phyllis Cookie Everly - October 16, 2023

    I pray for all the innocent people in Israel and for their families who are wondering where they are as hostages. The innocent babies being beheaded and children having their parents being killed in front of them. How in the heck can a person do such things? They are full of the devil and they may have evil doings now but Hell has no doors. Also prayers go out to the leaders of our America. Do the right thing and quit arguing about who needs to be in charge!! I pray for all of Israel and all the people who are at lost to know what to do to be safe. God please put a end to this to this horrific onslaught. Amen

  • Gail - October 13, 2023

    May all Patriots with God’s guidance and power CRUSH the evil with NO MERCY!!

  • Kathy McBurnie - October 13, 2023

    The Lord has grafted us in to the Jewish people so my heart breaks for Israel. Pray for those who’ve lost loved ones, those injured, those captured and for Israel’s leaders to have wisdom in their decisions about what to do next. Remember the God of Israel never slumbers or sleeps and he will not let Israel be destroyed!

  • Ronald Waniewski - October 13, 2023

    The world was very peaceful under the Trump administration. The greatest, common sense leader, in my lifetime. “They” stole him from us in 2020!! This l have no doubt. He established “Peace, through strength “. He brought about the “Abraham Accords”. A truly, Nobel Prize winning feat. Even that Nobel prize committee/ board cannot be trusted. They give Onama one just for breathing. Trump was not even considered. Biden and seemingly, the democratic party, are instruments of the devil. When you promote abortion, perversion, and open borders, you are not protecting Americans, or anyone who values the word of God. Evil people in charge begets evil. No one fears biden (lower case on purpose). With this attack on lsrael, the dominoes will begin to fall. There is no election integrity. As evidenced from the 2020 election, where President Trump earned, deserved, and won the election by a landslide!! All l know how to do right now, and since living this nightmare since they cheated biden in the White House, is to pray! As often as l can, l pray for the salvation of our country. The protection of Israel, Taiwan, Ukraine, and the great Trump! We need to go back to our Judeo Christian beliefs and practices! Lgbtqbs, antifa, blm are all terrorists in our country. Rotting it from the inside out! God bless Israel. God bless America. God bless Donald Trump. President Trump is the only one who can get us back on track and protect our country and the other countries l mentioned. Mr. Frank, you asked for prayers for Israel and my thoughts. Thank you for the opportunity.

  • GRACE STEINFURTH - October 12, 2023

    My prayer has many requests. Prayers for Isreal to comfort the the living through this horrific, senseless, and callus attack by Hamas. Prayers for the parents who lost their children (especially parents who witnessed their child-children being killed … what a terrible, terrible thing that is etched in their souls forever. Prayers to all citizens of Israel, Prayers to people who were visiting Israel and got
    caught-up in this senseless, despicable horror of man’s inhumanity to man. Prayers to soldiers, police, medics, doctors who “stayed the course” and helped whenever and wherever they could. So many to help, so many to thank … What does one say to the grieving ?? It’s all so heartbreaking and for no reason! God’s thoughts are higher than our thoughts and often ,at times like this, it’s really, really hard to express our thoughts to Him. He does have a plan although we mortals have no idea what it might be. And that’s where our faith learns how to BELIEVE in God, in Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. Often God knows we can not find any words to talk with Him and that’s Okay. He knows we’re there and He’s there for us … Just rest in the silence and begin to heal.

  • Virginia - October 11, 2023

    Dear Lord, please bring healing to Israel. They have suffered much pain and hurt these past few days. Please bring peace, security, and healing into their hearts. I prayed Psalm 91 over Israel, In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen

  • Erin - October 11, 2023

    I pray Zephaniah chapter 2 over Israel and its people.
    I pray for protection and shalom over Israelis.

  • Nicholas Cherasaro - October 11, 2023

    Men can sit down and determine that “during the next War” we cannot use certain weapons. This alone tells us how stupid we as human beings are.

    The current conflict just may set off the event we have all been fearing, a Nuclear World War III. I surely hope not.

    From a famous song:

    Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me. Let there be peace on earth, the peace that was meant to be.
    With God our father, brother all are we. Let me walk with my brother in perfect harmony.

    I pray that we all start doing what this song suggests very soon.
  • Eugene 'Gene' Hayes - October 11, 2023

    An example of the mindset of the Hamas (Muslim) murderers: In 1987, I was a member of a USAF Advisory Team in IRAN. One of my additional duties was typical preventive maintenance of our team’s vehicles. I established a contract with a local Iranian vehicle garage for that purpose. One day, while having one of vehicles serviced, I was in the office with the owner and, in conversation, he told me that he can lie, cheat or even kill me because I was an “infidel”. That is one of the world’s MAJOR problems: there are too many GODs! Over history, many wars are due to conflicts because of our religious beliefs. That is what is happening now especially in the Middle East. So , who do you pray to?
    I honestly feel deep pity for the innocent people being slaughtered on both sides. So, please, consider who you choose for your leaders!

  • Kathryn - October 11, 2023

    Lord God, you are a God of miracles. I pray that you protect innocent of Israel please give Israel, the weapons she needs to defend herself. God will bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse her.

  • G. H. - October 11, 2023

    God bless Israel. I pray for peace.

  • Barb Arnett - October 11, 2023

    Prayers for all involved in this conflict, especially the troops fighting and the families of those lost already. Prayers that the hostages will be returned safely to their families.

  • Dudley mcKinlay, III - October 11, 2023

    Praying for Israel, God speed, God bless, may the Lord watch over all of Israel and its people!

  • Lucille - October 11, 2023

    Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. (Psalm 122:6)

    He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is Israel refuge and Israel fortress: Israel God; in him will Israel trust. Surely he shall deliver Israel from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover Israel with his feathers, and under his wings shalt Israel trust: his truth shall be the shield and buckler. (Psalm 91:1-16)

  • Beverly - October 11, 2023

    I am praying for God’s will to be done in all of the fighting that will happen. Especially I pray for wise decisions to be made by Israeli and America’s leaders. My focus must be on God and not the “horses and chariots” of the. countries involved. This is one of the times I feel personally in danger because of where this war may go.

  • Don White Sr - October 11, 2023

    Dear Lord, once again we have all fallen short of all our promises to follow your directions for our salvation. Now we all see clearly, what history has shown us time and time again over the past 3,000 years. Evil exists in this world, and left unchecked it grows, and eventually erupts in the barbaric,sadistic, butchery we now see in Islael. The only true path to peace and righteousness in this sick world, is thru our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I Pray for both.

  • Rose - October 11, 2023

    I pray protection over Israel and her people psalm 91.

  • Jolene Reith - October 11, 2023

    Let God arise and His enemies be scattered!! Lord squelch the pro Palestine movements around the world. Let the truth open the eyes of all peoples to the lies that have been told. Lord your word declares the borders for Israel so let your word manifest! Show mercy to all afflicted and cover other nations from any further attacks in the all powerful name of Jesus we pray. Comfort those who have lost loved ones in such a horrific way.
