Gilad Shalit’s 6th Birthday in Captivity: Pray for His Release!

It is important that we pray for Gilad Shalit, as he is in his sixth year of captivity.

Gilad Shalit is an Israeli soldier who was captured in a cross border raid on the crossing Kerem Shalom from the Gaza Strip by Gazan militants on 25 June 2006 and has been held hostage by Hamas ever since.
