Israel, the apple of God’s eye. Such a tiny country, surrounded by enemies who want to eliminate her. Many of the countries surrounding her will try to destroy her, which was foretold in Ezekiel 38. The names may be different, but the names by which they are called today, you see in the news everyday. As well, there are other countries that have strained relationships with Israel or want to cause harm such as Iran, Russia, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine and Turkey. Hostility runs high. Just as in other countries around the world their people need food and shelter and peace from hate and war towards them.
- Pray for Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. That God will guide his direction for this little country.
- Pray for the people, whose lives are many times stopped, to find a place to hide, because the sirens are so frequent that children need to stop going to school or people going to work, for their safety from incoming rockets.
- Pray that God will deliver Israel once again from these threats, just as He has done many times before.
- Pray for pastors and ministers bringing Christianity and the Word of God to the people of Israel that they may come to know Jesus as their Saviour, who came, died, and rose again, that they may have life and have it more abundantly.
