Special prayers over Israel's drought answered as the heavens opened up with a downpour of rain on Israel
After several years of shrinking water levels, drought stricken regions in Israel finally receive rain-confirming answers to prayers by Christians for the condition in Israel. Concerned parties called on government to take measures to avoid irreversible damage to the sea of Galilee, the Jordan and other sites as Christian pilgrimage and tourism could be adversely affected on the event of such damages. The out pour of the rain after a long period of drought as well as government's moves towards replenishing the Sea of Galilee and others are positive signals of better days ahead. Environmentalists and Christian faithfuls welcome the move of the government but skeptics say with Israel's preparation for the general elections in 2019 along with an expected raining winter, the Galilee can be neglected again.
