for every day of the month
By Sandra Teplinsky
The Lord’s Prayer:
“Our Father in heaven, reveal to Israel Your loving, faithful and personal Fatherhood. May Your holy name be worshiped in Your holy land. May Your kingdom come in purity and power, and Your will be done in Israel, as it is in heaven. Give Israel the daily physical and spiritual bread needed to live for You. Forgive us Israelis our sin according to Your covenant promises. In Yeshua, we forgive those who sin against us. Do not lead Israel into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Yours is the kingdom, power and glory forever! (Mat. 6:9-13)”
The Peace of Jerusalem:
“Son of David, Jerusalem belongs to You, for it is the city of the Great King (Ps. 48:2, Isa. 60:14, Ps. 132:13-14, Matt. 5:35). Graciously saturate Jerusalem with Your peace (Ps. 122:6, Isa. 33:20; 40:2). You are the One restoring and building her up (Ps. 147:2). Though nations gather against the city to divide her, protect Jerusalem and make her an immovable rock (Zech. 12:3). Pour upon her a spirit of grace and supplication so she will recognize and surrender to You (Zech. 12:10). Let Jerusalem be a praise in the earth (Isa. 62:7). Fulfill her destiny to minister Your Word and truth to the nations (Isa. 2:3, Zech. 8:3, 22), dispensing righteousness and justice to the Gentiles (Jer. 33:16, Isa.60:3; 62:1-2, Ps. 122:5). Establish Jerusalem as holy unto You (Isa. 4:3; 27:13; 52:1; 66:20, Joel 3:17, Zech. 8:3; 13:1; 14:21). Make her the city of Your comfort, (Isa. 40:1-2; 52:9; 60:15; 62:2; 65:18; 66:10, Zeph. 3:14, Zech. 9:9), glory and splendor (Isa. 52:1; 60: 1, 7, 13, 19; 62:2-3; Ez. 43:1-2, Zech. 2:5). Protect, purify and empower believers, congregations and ministries in Jerusalem by being a wall of fire about us (Zech. 2:5). In Yeshua, amen.”
“King of Israel, we pray for all those in positions of human authority, that Your people may lead peaceable lives in godliness and reverence towards You (1 Tim. 2:1-4). The Israeli government is on Your shoulders (Isa. 9:6) and there are no authorities except those whom You appoint (Ro. 13:1). Hear our cry for Israel to be governed by leaders who rightly fear You. Give them supernatural protection, wisdom and strength to execute Your purposes, for the kings’ heart is in Your hands (Prov. 21:1). Provide a government founded on truth, righteousness and justice. Replace contention and confusion with unity and divine order. Expose and cleanse from the government corruption and lies. Enable the branches of Israel’s government to work in unity, according to Your will. We ask You also to raise up godly authorities in all spheres of Israeli society. Protect and anoint them to serve Your purposes. Thank You, in Yeshua’s name.”
“Heavenly Father, please protect, mature, strengthen and empower Jewish and Arab Israeli believers in faith, hope, and most of all, love (1 Cor. 13:13). Grace us with humility that leads to true unity. Give us boldness to share Yeshua in fiery love, truth, signs and wonders. Raise up shepherds after Your own heart to pastor Your flocks (Jer. 3:15). Summon more and more Israeli intercessors to stand in the gap before You in prayer for Your people (Ez. 22:30). Reconcile Arabs and Jews in Messiah. Bring right order and honor between male and female, that Messianic women might serve You free of unbiblical restraint (Gal. 3:28). Provide needed spiritual and material resources in Hebrew and Arabic for Israeli believers to reveal You effectively to our people. We praise You that You are growing Your Body and the gates of hell will not prevail against us (Mat. 16:18). To You be the glory!”
Israel’s Salvation: God’s Holy Love (Part 1/3):
“Loving Father, as You have long desired to do for Israel, would You “heal our waywardness and love us freely” (Hos. 14:4). Let the Jewish people hear You speak personally to their hearts: ‘Is not [Israel] My dear son, the child in whom I delight? Though I often speak against him, I still remember him. Therefore My heart yearns for him; I have great compassion for him’ (Jer. 31:20). ‘I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness’ (Jer. 31:3). Yeshua, You Who wept over Jerusalem, fulfill the yearning of Your heart to receive the worship and love of the Jewish people. Cause Your Word to be fulfilled: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord Your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength’ (Deut. 6:4-5, MEV). Thank You, in Yeshua’s name.”
Israel’s Salvation: Repentance (Part 2/3):
“Righteous Judge, despite our sin, please give Israel grace to turn humbly back to You. Restore us to righteousness for the sake of Your holy name (1 Sam. 12:20-22, TLV). ‘We do not make requests of You because we are righteous, but because of Your great mercy. O Lord, hear and forgive us!’ (Dan. 9:18-19) We proclaim the Word of the Lord over Israel: ‘Adonai longs to be gracious to you [Israel] … As soon as He hears you, He will answer you. Return, O Israel, to the Lord your God…Say to Him, “Forgive all our sins and receive us graciously”’ (Isa. 30:18-19, Hos. 14:1-2). Lord, let Your blessing, cover and anointing be on the Israeli Prayer Network of Messianic Jewish and Arab Christian citizens praying and fasting for revival, in Yeshua’s name.”
Israel’s Salvation: Outpouring of the Spirit (Part 3/3):
“Sovereign One, let a new and powerful outpouring of Your Spirit on Your people begin! Only by Your Spirit will the veil over Israel be removed and Messiah revealed (2 Cor. 3:14, Isa. 53). Cause the salvation and Spirit-fullness of the Gentiles to provoke Israel to jealousy for her Messiah (Ro. 11:11, 25-26). “O Lord, save Your people, the remnant of Israel” (Jer. 31:7)! “My heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they might be saved” (Ro. 10:1). Make Your salvation known to Jewish people living in the nations, as well as in the land. Let there be an unprecedented global harvest of Jewish people according to Your Word, in Yeshua’s name!”
One New Man:
“Creator God, we praise You for the creation of One New Man in Messiah. Would You graciously empower Israeli Jewish believers in Yeshua to bless Gentile believers humbly and meekly, in unconditional love. Enable Gentile believers from abroad to bless their Israeli Messianic brothers and sisters, as well as those Israelis who do not believe in Yeshua (Eph. 2:14-16, Ro. 15:27). Mature us as one, that we might be a testimony of Yeshua’s love to Israel (John 13:35; 17:21).
Mercifully reveal to Christians, including beloved Arab believers, the truth of Your everlasting covenant with Israel (Gen. 12:1-3; 28:13-14, Ro. 9:1-4; 11:1). Forgive the Church for its anti-Jewish, anti-Israel theologies, old and new, that have sought to replace or remove Your prophetic promises from Israel. Expose and overturn lies that still distance some Christians from Israel. Set them free from anti-Israel Palestinianism, humanism, globalism or unbiblical concepts of social justice. Rekindle love for truth in the Church!
Dispense grace for believing Jews, Arabs, and other ethnicities in Israel to genuinely reconcile in humility, forgiveness and love. Use us to renew within Israeli society brotherly love as flesh-and-blood, extended family members and children of one Father. Remind our people how good and pleasant it is when we dwell together in unity, for there You command a blessing (Ps. 133:1-3). Heal strife and enmity among political and other factions in society. Thank You, Father.”
Protection and Defense:
“Defender of Israel, let Israel declare … ‘Our help is in the name of the Lord’ (Ps. 124:1-8). O God, ‘keep us as the apple of Your eye; hide us under the shadow of Your wings from … deadly enemies who surround us’ (Ps. 17:8-9). Along Israel’s land, sea and air borders, would You dispatch angelic guardian hosts and warrior battalions. Protect her from enemies who seek to devour her. ‘Hide [Israel] in the secret place of Your presence from the plots of men…keep [her] secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.’ (Ps. 31:20). Bring the counsel of ungodly nations set against her to nothing, and their plans to no effect (Ps. 33:10). For You have declared, ‘There is no witchcraft that can succeed against Jacob’ (Numbers 23:23). Keep Israel from ungodly alliances with nations seeking to entrap her. We declare that Israel trusts in You for protection, security and deliverance. For Your glory, amen.”
“Defender of Israel, protect Israel’s mountains and northern borders from foreign invasion, for her fiercest enemies come from the north. Summon Your shields to cover the north, for ‘the shields of the earth belong to You’ (Ps. 47:9). Overthrow demonic thrones seeking to destroy the work of Your hands in Israel. Expose and neutralize plans of attack from air, land, underground, sea or cyberspace. Shine Your light into that which is hidden in darkness, especially Iranian proxies and their weapons caches near Israel’s northern borders. In Yeshua’s name, let any invasion from the north take place only in Your set time. If or when enemies invade from the north, ‘show Your greatness and holiness, and make Yourself known in the sight of many nations’ (Ez. 38:23). Prosper the many communities, farms, industries, and businesses of the north. Protect, strengthen and embolden Messianic believers in the north. Pour out Your Spirit in the north and reveal Your salvation.”
“Heavenly Father, would You bless, prosper according to righteousness, and protect Israel’s central region. Guard Israel’s coast from her enemies’ plans of destruction. Mercifully command evil schemes on or under water to be exposed and neutralized. Rule over the sea according to Your Word: ‘The voice of the Lord is over the waters…the Lord thunders over the mighty waters…the Lord sits enthroned over the flood…the Lord blesses His people with peace’ (Ps. 29:3,10-11). In the name of Yeshua, protect and prosper according to righteousness her shipping ports, media and business centers, military headquarters, and offshore gas and hi-tech hubs. Protect and prosper the cities, farms, businesses and industries in the center of the country. Protect, strengthen, ignite and embolden Messianic congregations and believers in the central region. Bring revival to the center of Israel!”
“Redeemer of Israel, over the south of Israel we declare Your Word: ‘The desert and parched land will be glad; the wilderness will rejoice and blossom…; it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy…They will see the glory of the Lord, the splendor of our God….Water will gush forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert. The burning sand will become a pool; the thirsty ground, bubbling springs….the redeemed will walk there.’ (Isa. 35:1-2, 6-7, 9) Bring to life the land and people of the Negev. Protect and prosper cities, businesses, industries, educational centers, and military facilities in the South. ‘Provide water in the desert and streams in the wasteland to give drink to … the people [You] formed for [Yourself] that they may proclaim [Your] praise’ (Isa. 43:20-21). Enhance peaceable cooperation with the Bedouin in the Negev, some of whom have uniquely blessed the Jews. Sustain and bless cooperative relations with Egypt and Jordan over shared borders and interests in the south. Send Your watcher and warrior angels to guard the port of Eilat.
Especially along Israel’s border with Gaza, extend Psalm 91 protection from terror, war or other forms of attack. Thank You for intercepting and miraculously re-directing projectiles shot from Gaza into civilian centers in the south. Grant peace and comfort to Israeli communities suffering from these attacks. Expose enemy hideouts, tunnels and schemes in the desert, for ‘the voice of the Lord shakes the desert’ (Ps. 29:8). Protect, strengthen and embolden Messianic congregations and believers in the south. Redeem the south with revival in the Holy Spirit!”
Judea and Samaria, aka the West Bank:
“God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, we present to You this ground where You established covenant with the patriarchs, promising their descendants this land forever. Let the ground be released and restored, by the blood of Yeshua, to Jewish stewardship, rightly and in Your time. Do not allow land You promised to Israel to be wrongly divided, for ‘You can do all things; no plan of Yours can be thwarted’ (Job 42:2). Protect Jews living in West Bank settlements from terror and other forms of military invasion. Expose and dismantle violent conspiracies, underground tunnels, and other hidden modes of attack. Expose lies condemning Israeli settlements as illegal. Draw Palestinians in the West Bank to faith in Jesus and an embrace of Your heart for Israel. Implement true and righteous justice between these two peoples. Protect, strengthen and embolden the Palestinian remnant following You in Spirit and in truth. Raise up Palestinian leaders who seek genuine peace, biblical justice, and operate with wisdom. Mercifully spare Israel from any false peace treaty with the Palestinian people. Protect, strengthen and embolden Messianic Jews and congregations in Judea and Samaria. Reveal Yeshua as Israel’s only Messiah to the many spiritually hungry Jews in Judea and Samaria.”
“Giver of Life, thank You for showering mercy on Your land. Supply from heaven the rain needed to sustain life, and for which we depend on You. Protect Israel from any dangerous floodwaters which can result from overabundant rain. Let it rain where strategically needed, over Mt. Hermon and the Sea of Galilee. Thank You for water saving technologies You have enabled Israel to develop and share with the world. Despite these technologies, our hope is in You, for ‘the Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of His bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands.’ … ‘He will also send rain for the seed you sow in the ground and the food that comes from the land will be rich and plentiful’ (Deut. 28:12, Isa. 30:23). Thank You, Lord, for watering the planting of Your hands, the nation of Israel You are restoring for Your glory.”
“Restorer of Israel, call each of Your Jewish people living in the nations back to the land of Israel at Your appointed time. ‘In that day the Lord will reach out His hand a second time to reclaim the remnant that is left of His people and gather the exiles of Israel…from the four corners of the earth’ (Isa. 11:11-12). Strengthen with joy new immigrants as they settle in the land. Help them overcome cultural differences and difficulties, learn Hebrew, financially support their families and absorb into society. ‘It will … be said, “As surely as the Lord lives, who brought the Israelites up out of the land of the north and out of all the countries where He had banished them.” For [You] will restore them to the land [You] gave to their forefathers’ (Jer. 16:15). Raise up Gentile believers who will aid in the Jews’ return and absorption. ‘See, I will beckon to the Gentiles, I will lift up My banner to the peoples; they will bring your sons in their arms and carry your daughters on their shoulders’ (Isa. 49:22). Overturn current Israeli policies and political strongholds that restrict or refuse aliyah to Messianic Jews, and in so doing, further open the gates to Yeshua, our King of Glory.”
“Creator of Life, convict us of murdering tens of thousands of unborn Jewish babies every year. Forgive us for providing low or no cost legal abortion to Israeli women practically on request, and particularly to female soldiers. We confess that our land is soaked with innocent blood. We cry out for the blood of Yeshua to heal Your holy land. Let the power of ancient, child sacrifice to Molech (Jer. 32:35) be broken in Israel in Yeshua’s name. Graciously supply all needed spiritual and physical resources to Israeli pro-life organizations. Expand their reach and effectiveness. Reveal biblical truth about abortion to rabbis, medical workers and political leaders. Soften and convict the hearts of women who are pregnant with babies they did not plan to have, for children are a gift from You (Ps. 127:3). Turn the hearts of fathers and mothers, sons and daughters back to each other (Mal. 4:6). O Lord, have mercy!”
“Abba, pour out Your Spirit on Israeli children, youth and young adults. Graciously protect them from worldliness, sexual immorality, family dysfunction and the traumas of terror and war. (Ps. 102:28). Secure their childhood and identity in Your love and shalom. Teach them Your ways. Cause Israeli youth to hunger for true spirituality found only in Messiah Yeshua. Heal the children of Israeli believers from any wounds they may have sustained in congregations. Please call back the prodigals. Mercifully ‘turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers’ (Mal. 4:6). Be a father to the fatherless in the land (Ps. 68:5). Grow a righteous remnant for the next generation and future leaders who worship You in Spirit and truth.”
“Prince of Peace, bless Israeli Arabs with Your overwhelming love. Reveal Jesus as Savior to multitudes of Israeli Muslims through dreams, visions and anointed preaching of the Gospel. Protect, prosper, mature and embolden Israeli Arab Christians who genuinely follow Jesus. Use them to provoke not just fellow Arabs, but also Jews, to godly envy for relationship with Israel’s Messiah. Prosper and reward Israeli Arabs who are loyal citizens (Lev. 19:34). Protect those fighting faithfully in the Israeli Defense Forces. Convict and bring to repentance Israeli Arabs who seek the Jewish state’s destruction. Mercifully expose and overturn terror cells and lone wolf attacks before they occur. In the Israeli Body of believers, release forgiveness and loving reconciliation between Messianic Jews and Arab Christians (John 17:21). Where genuine injustice against Arabic speaking minorities exists, give wisdom and strategy to Israeli authorities for peaceable and righteous correction and restitution (Ps. 89:14).”
“El Elyon, Most High God, You are sovereign over Iran and Israel. Magnify Yourself in both nations. You tell us to love and pray for our enemies, so we ask You to shed Your salvific light of life over Iran (Mat. 5:44) Expose deception and darkness over that nation. Set the Iranian people free to worship You. Protect, strengthen and empower the fast growing, underground church of Iran.
We declare in the name of Yeshua that any apocalyptic war against Israel involving Iran or other nations shall occur only in Your prophetic time, for Your purposes, that You may be glorified (Ez.38:1-39:24). Begin now to prepare Israel, and especially Israeli believers, for that time.
Concerning any present day working of the “prince of Persia” (Dan. 10:13) or Haman-like strongholds (Esther 3:5-6) over Iran, release Your Word: ‘Let all who hate Zion be turned back in shame … Praise be to the Lord my rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle. He is … my shield in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me. … Deliver me and rescue me from the hands of foreigners whose mouths are full of lies… When Your enemies rage against You, rebuke them and say, “I have installed my King on Zion, My holy hill. … Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth [and] serve the Lord with fear” … O God … see how Your enemies are astir, how Your foes rear their heads. With cunning they conspire against Your people; they plot against those You cherish. “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more. … Let us take possession of the pasture lands of God.” Make them like tumbleweed, O my God…pursue them with Your tempest and terrify them with Your storm. … May they ever be ashamed and dismayed; may they perish in disgrace. Let them know that You, whose name is the Lord – that You alone are the Most High over all the earth’ (Ps. 129:5-6; 144:1-2, 11; 2: 6, 10-11; 83:1-4, 12-18).”
(Lawfare is warfare fought in legal arenas, usually to overturn laws that are based on traditional Judeo-Christian principles.) “Author of Truth, thank You for defending Israel from the onslaught of lawfare against her. When nations attack her as an illegitimate state in the UN, International Criminal Court and other global venues, arise O God, and scatter Your enemies (Ps. 68:1). Expose lies against Israel with Your truth. Let schemes of darkness to de-legitimize or dismantle her as a Jewish state be broken by the blood of Messiah. Replace anti-Israel lies with fresh passion for biblical justice and truth. Concerning any evil forces driving some nations against Israel, ‘Let them be caught in their pride. For the curses and lies they utter, consume them in wrath’ (Ps. 59:12-13). We praise You for restoring Israel in our day despite the opposition of lawfare, for ‘the plans of the Lord stand firm forever’ (Ps. 33:11).”
The Poor and Needy:
“YHVH Yireh, our God who Provides, thank You for the miraculous prosperity with which you have blessed Israel. Yet we need Your mercy and wisdom, for although wealth greatly increases for some, poverty increases for others and Israel’s middle class shrinks. We cry out to You for economic justice. Give wisdom to Israeli policymakers and lawmakers for economic reform. Release revelation of Your Word: ‘There will always be poor in the land. Therefore I command you to be open handed to your fellow Israelites who are in the land. (Deut. 15:11). Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and He will reward them’ (Prov. 19:17). ‘Do not exploit the poor because they are poor … for the Lord will take up their case’ (Prov. 22:22-23). Show Israeli believers how to serve in greater ways as conduits for material blessing and justice. Give wisdom and discernment to both Jews and Christians from the nations in aiding the poor and needy in Israel, for You know the nuances are complex. Especially bless needy Israeli widows and orphans with Your protective care. Thank You for holding them close to Your heart and drawing them to the love of Yeshua.”
“Restorer of Israel, thank You for the miraculous growth of Your nation in 71 years. While Israel has had to focus much on national defense, her internal, domestic problems also need intervention. We ask You to heal her socialized medical system and instruct her education system according to Your ways. Would You raise up leaders gifted with godly wisdom to revamp these key infrastructures. Stir the hearts of intelligent and caring young people to pursue careers once again in medicine and teaching. Protect, strengthen and anoint current medical and educational workers. Give Israel wisdom and resources to provide much-needed, additional hospital facilities, clinics and schools. We also ask for wisdom, resources and leadership to update Israel’s housing policies and transportation systems. Guide and restructure agricultural policies and practices consistent with Your Word. We present these requests in Yeshua, and may all be to the glory of His name. Thank You that You have said, ‘I will build you up again, and you will be rebuilt, O virgin Israel’ (Jer. 31:3-4).”
“Loving Abba, You have blessed us beyond measure by creating humankind for the purpose of love relationship with You. Let Your prophetic Word come to pass quickly over Israel: ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul and all your strength’ (Deut. 6:5; Matt. 22:37). Forgive us Israelis for seeking You according to ritualistic traditions of men which are void of Spirit and truth. Let there be a move of Your Spirit in Israel over the religious strongholds which saturate society and shape Jewish mindsets. Give revelation of the futility of human based efforts to obtain forgiveness of sins. Open our eyes and hearts to the once-for-all atonement of Messiah. In Yeshua’s name and by the power of His blood, shake religious, anti-Christ strongholds over Israel, especially in ultra-Orthodox Judaism. O God, set Your people free, that we might worship You in Spirit and in truth! (John 4:24)”
“Holy God, You have set Israel apart as a nation and You are jealous for her love. Yet we and our fathers continue going after the gods of other nations. Would You forgive us and cleanse our land for the sake of Yeshua, the power of His atonement, and His kingship over Israel. Have mercy on the many Israelis pursuing Buddhism, Hinduism, Shinto, Wicca and related systems of false belief. We cry out to You to expose the futility of “new age” spirituality. Meet our spiritual hunger in the power of Your love and truth. We proclaim Your Word that Israel ‘shall have no other god before You’ (Ex. 20:3). Use more and more Jewish and Gentile believers to provoke Israelis seeking foreign gods to jealousy for relationship with the one true God through Yeshua, according to Romans 11:11. Thank You for the gracious and glorious work You are doing to turn us back to Yourself.”
“Captain of the Armies of Heaven, please surround Israeli soldiers with Your defending, warring angels. Most of them are teenagers; give them wisdom and divine discernment beyond their years, especially in the heat of battle. Strengthen, encourage and protect every believer in the army, navy and air force. Give each believer grace to testify of Messiah to their units.
Please provide accurate intelligence and clear communications to Israel’s armies. As in ancient times, reveal divine strategies of both defense and attack. May the soldiers value righteousness and may You shield them from physical, spiritual or emotional harm. Let them wholeheartedly say, ‘With Your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall…He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze. You give me Your shield of victory … You armed me with strength for battle; You made my adversaries bow at my feet. You made my enemies turn their backs in flight, and I destroyed my foes’ (Ps. 18:29, 34-35, 39-40). In Yeshua’s name, amen.”
Laborers for the Harvest:
“Lord of the Harvest, as Yeshua told us to do, we ask You to send workers to Your harvest fields in Israel. We praise You that both Jewish and Arab fields are ripening for harvest (Luke 10:2). Ignite, embolden and empower Israeli believers to share the good news of salvation. Ignite, embolden and empower believers from the nations to do the same when they visit the land. Raise up evangelists gifted by the Spirit to provoke Israelis to jealousy for intimate relationship with You (Ro. 11:11, 13-14). Raise up Spirit filled teachers, pastors, and others to shepherd and nurture the people in Messianic faith. Provide the resources needed for Hebrew Bible study, discipleship and leadership training in Israel. We present this request with thanksgiving in Yeshua’s name.”
Covenant Restoration of Israel:
“Covenant-keeping God, restore Israel according to Your Word, physically to the Land and spiritually to You. ‘Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, proclaim it in distant coastlands: He who scattered Israel will gather them and will watch over His flock like a shepherd’ (Jer. 31:10). We in the nations declare Your Word that You are regathering Israel.
Fulfill Your covenant promise: ‘It is not for your sake, O house of Israel, that I am going to do these things, but for the sake of My holy name…I will take you out of the nations; I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back into your own land. I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put My Spirit in you and move you to follow My decrees and be careful to keep My laws. You will live in the land I gave your forefathers; you will be My people, and I will be your God’ (Ez. 36: 22-28). Despite international opposition, bring to glorious completion the process of Your miraculous restoration. To You be the glory.”
“Sovereign God, You alone determine Israel’s set times and seasons. According to Your Word, we declare in Yeshua’s name that Your enemies cannot upset the timing of Your prophetic plans (Dan. 11:27, Ps. 33: 9-12; Matt. 24:36). Revive and prepare Israel to welcome Your return, for You have said, ‘You will not see Me again until you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord’ (Matt. 23:39). Purify the Israeli Bride according to Your Word: ‘The wedding of the Lamb has come, and His bride has made herself ready’ (Rev. 19:7). Empower her to stand firm in love and truth in times of trouble or severe hardship preceding Yeshua’s return (Dan. 11:32, Matt. 24:8, 12-13; 25:31-46). Give Israeli believers divine wisdom and prophetic insight concerning the end of this age. Ignite them with boldness to share the good news of salvation and follow the Lamb wherever He goes (Rev. 14:4). Maranatha!”
“King of Israel, You shake what can be shaken, so that what cannot be shaken will remain. (Heb. 12:26-27) In the shaking, we ask You to provide government in Israel through which You can best move to accomplish Your purposes at this season for Your people (Prov. 21:21). You are the One who raises up and takes down leaders, so we cry out to You to raise up leaders who will align with the purposes of Your heart (Ps. 75:6-7; Dan. 2:21).
We declare over Israel Your Word from Isaiah 9:6-7: ‘…The government will rest on [Messiah Yeshua’s] shoulders…Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end…The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this.’ Let anti-Messiah strongholds in the government be replaced by those that will open wide the gates and ancient doors to the King of Glory, that He may come in (Ps. 24:7,9).
Graciously expose truth from false accusations concerning Israel’s government. Reveal genuine corruption and give wisdom to restore justice and righteousness, for these are the foundation of Your throne (Ps. 89:14, 94:20). Protect Israeli politics and elections from spiritual forces of globalism, international manipulation or witchcraft, for ‘there is no witchcraft [effective] against Jacob’ (Nu. 23:23). Move on the hearts of the Israeli electorate to align and vote according to Your will. As the government experiences birth pains preceding Messiah’s return (Mat. 24:8), break through political stalemates and hindrances, for You are the God of breakthrough (2 Sam. 5:20).
Individual Israelis You Know:
We do not include a scripted prayer today so that you might lift up individual Israelis you personally know or support. If you do not know any, we ask you to pray for us at Light of Zion. We are always in need of grace, strength and protection to finish the course the Lord has set for us. Please pray for us as we mobilize intercessory prayer among indigenous Messianic Israeli believers. Thank you!
Thanksgiving for Answered Prayer:
“Gracious King, You tell us to present our requests before You with thanksgiving (Phil. 4:6). We thank You, Sovereign Lord, for answering the prayers we have prayed this month for Israel in accordance with Your Word. Your Word is certain and settled in heaven. Thank You for calling us to intercession on behalf of Israel. Thank You for the joy You give us in return: ‘Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad for her, all you who love her; rejoice greatly with her, all you who mourn over her’ (Isa. 66:10, NLT). As You promise blessing to those who bless Israel, we thank You for the greatest blessing You give in return, which is more of You in our lives.”
