Israel

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Lord, bring the Christian Believers into the realization and convince them to exercise the authority in prayer over the situation in Israel. Let them know that whatever they bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever they loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Inspire the Churches to campaign in the name of Jesus Christ and declare the Word of God in agreement with others and ask the Lord to bless the leaders and the new government. Empower them to exalt Your mighty name over the legalistic groups blocking people to accept the Messiah who died for them on the cross of Calvary. Lord, keep Your mighty hand upon the new Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett to establish the right leadership in the region. Lord, guide Isaac Herzog the new president. Direct him as he pledged to heal deep divisions in Israeli society. You are the God who binds the wounds and heals the people with Your compassionate love (The Bible, Matthew 18:18-20).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Israel is a source of division and contention, both in the world and in the Church. Modern analysts can perhaps look to the deep-seated antagonism between Jew and Arab as an outgrowth of tribal hatreds born centuries ago, even reaching back to the children of the Patriarch Abraham. Christianity’s emergence from the root of Israel has led to a confusion of relationship that has shifted like sand through the years, ranging from love and respect to outright persecution. The founding of the State of Israel in 1948 was an astonishing fulfilment of Biblical prophecy and those events surrounding Israel are key to understanding the Last Days.
