We thank you, friends and intercessors, for committing time and effort to pray Israel’s needs. As you are a temple of the Holy Spirit, your prayers are heard in Heaven (1 Corinthians 6:19−20).
Threats from Iran’s direction
The Iranian leaders are determined to destroy Israel and her people. They do not realize that Israel with the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is a challenging target to any enemy. Intercede for Israel, proclaiming: “Rescue me, and deliver me out of the hand of aliens, whose mouth speaks deceit and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood” (Psalm 144:11).
Circle of enemies
Since the Romans besieged and destroyed the ancient Jewish city of Gamla on the Golan Heights, the current enemies of Syria, Iran and Russia may find it tempting to attack Israel by capturing first Gamla, the Northern Masada─named after the Dead Sea Masada fortress.
Sincerely intercede for Israeli leaders and recall that,
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD and whose trust is the LORD. For he will be like a tree planted by the water” (Jeremiah 17:7−8).
Gaza border challenges
Israeli soldiers of the age of your sons and grandsons face daily dangers from thousands of hateful Gazan Arabs who run to the border in order to rush through to kill any Jewish man, woman or child they find. Soldiers must stop the invaders and keep them on the Gaza side. Take your prayer shawl and fervently pray for peace and calm over the Gaza-Israel border.
“I cried out to Thee, O LORD, I said, ‘Thou art my refuge, my portion in the land of the living’” (Psalm 142:5).
Hardly a day goes by without the UN condemning Israel or the international media broadcasting outright lies to damage Israel, yet to promote Hamas and other Arab groups’ violence. Go to your prayer closet and pray for God’s promises over Israel.
“Do not be afraid of them, for the LORD your God, who brought you up from the land of Egypt, is with you” (Deuteronomy 20:1).
“Whatever the LORD pleases, He does, in heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps” (Psalm 135:6).
