I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we thank You for the House of Representative's strong response to Iran and support for Israel. We pray that our nation would bravely and boldly stand by Israel at this time.

In response to Iran’s recent attack on Israel, the U.S. House of Representatives has passed several pieces of legislation. Here’s a more detailed look at each one:

  • Resolution on Antisemitic Slogan: This resolution condemns the slogan “from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” as antisemitic. The slogan has been interpreted by some as a call for the elimination of the state of Israel.
  • Holding Iranian Leaders Accountable Act: This act would require the U.S. government to produce a report detailing the financial holdings of senior Iranian officials. The goal is to increase transparency and accountability within the Iranian government.
  • Iran Sanctions Accountability Act: This act is designed to prevent Iran from evading sanctions. It likely includes measures to tighten enforcement and close loopholes that may allow Iran to circumvent existing sanctions.

  • Strengthening Tools to Counter the Use of Human Shields Act: This act would impose sanctions on groups that use civilians as human shields, a practice considered a war crime under international law.
  • Illicit Captagon Trafficking Suppression Act: Captagon is a synthetic stimulant drug. This act would impose sanctions on groups involved in the production or distribution of Captagon, aiming to curb its illicit trafficking.
  • No Technology for Terror Act: This act would permanently prohibit the export of U.S.-made technology to Iran. The goal is to prevent Iran from using U.S. technology for potentially harmful purposes, including terrorism.
  • No Paydays to Hostage Takers Act: This act would prevent sanctioned Iranian officials from entering the U.S. for United Nations meetings. The aim is to deny these officials any potential benefits from such visits.
  • Solidify Iran Sanctions Act: This act would make certain sanctions on Iran permanent, reinforcing the U.S.’s stance against Iran’s actions.
  • Resolution on Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps: This resolution urges the European Union to declare Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization. The goal is to increase international pressure on Iran.

While these measures have been passed by the House, it’s important to note that they are not yet law and are still subject to further legislative process in the Senate.

Lord, You alone are God, and we appeal to You LORD God Almighty to show yourself strong. No weapon formed against us shall prosper.
We must stand by Israel. I pray that all this is passed, In Jesus name – so be it!
