Prayer for Israel…

Prayer for Israel…

8th October 2023

Dear Friends,

It is heart-wrenching to see what is happening in Israel since this new wave of terrorism started yesterday. We are in contact with friends in the land who are describing horrific scenes – especially in the southern towns nearer to Gaza.

At times like this we can have such a desire to pray but wonder “how should I pray?”. So, we asked some of our friends in Israel to give us first-hand prayer points which we will be using as a team and wanted to share with you too.

Here are the prayer points:

  • Please pray for the peace of Jerusalem. (Psalm 122:6)
  • Please pray for the terrorists to be caught and stopped.
  • Please pray for God’s protection for civilians and army. For God to be their shield, rear guard, and a wall of fire around them. Please pray for the faith of believing soldiers to be strengthened. (Psalm 91)
  • Please pray for protection and rescue the hundred or more who have been kidnapped by Hamas. (1 Samuel 30)
  • Please pray for protection within communities in the South who have been infiltrated by Hamas terrorists.
  • Please pray for protection from the 1000s of Hamas rockets. (Psalm 44:4-8)
  • Please pray for the salvation of Jews and Arabs. (Romans 11:26-27, 2 Peter 3:9)
  • Please pray that God would rescue His people and that the nations will know He is Lord. (Psalm 83, Psalm 2)
  • Please pray for courage, hope, peace, strength for the people – that God would bring his help with the trauma and fear impacting so many. (2 Timothy 1:7, Romans 15:13)
  • Please pray for the families of the soldiers lost and for recovering soldiers and civilians.
  • Please pray for the Israeli governmental leaders to make wise and God-directed decisions. (1 Timothy 2:1-2)
  • Please pray that Christians around the world would fully wake up to the reality of rising, demonically inspired anti-Semitism. That as God’s people we would commit to bless the Jewish people and pray for God’s purposes for Israel to be fulfilled.
