I just heard that the other Islamic countries are all applauding Egypt’s stand on this; so, when the rubber really hits the road, all the Muslim nations are going to march with the Palestinians.” Sudlow says as the tensions increase, so does the need for prayer. “Islam is really having a resurgence, and anybody who’s trying to deal with it politically and forgets that component is really missing the point. As Christians, we must pray for the peace of Jerusalem, but the full and lasting peace won’t come until the prince of peace returns.”
