Israel

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards and Lebanon’s Hezbollah places were attacked by Israel. These target positions are in Syria. This kind of missile attack by Israel in Syria has been continuing for months. There has been a wave of terrorism in Israel in four of its cities four times. In recent years the Palestinian parties and militant groups are responsible for such attacks. More than five decades of occupation of the West Bank by Israel and its control over the sensitive religious sites in Jerusalem are challenged. Pray for the attackers and assailants to repent and stop killing innocent people. Pray for Israeli Christian Believers to proclaim the mighty power of God to everyone. Pray that they exalt Jesus Christ the Prince of Peace and the Savior of mankind who can forgive people of their sins (The Bible, Acts 5:31).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Israel is a republic with a president as head of state. However, the president’s powers are largely ceremonial; the prime minister holds the executive power. Isaac Herzog is the Israel President and Incumbent Naftali Bennett is serving as Prime Minister from 13 June 2021. Tensions between the nation of Israel and Palestine have existed for more than a century. Ever since the 20th century, the two nations have had to contest over land, especially in post-WWII in 1948 when Israel was established as a Jewish state in the area in which it surrounds today.
