Prayer Points: December 2021

Consider these prayer points as springboards into deeper prayer and intercession.

Give attention to your servant’s prayer and his plea for mercy, Lord my God. Hear the cry and the prayer that your servant is praying in your presence this day.

1 Kings 8:28

 

NEWS

Israel’s national budget passed

The national budgets for 2021 and 2022 were both approved by the Knesset during November.

Coronavirus

The number of new coronavirus cases continues to go down. On 2nd December there were 526 new cases and 116 serious cases in hospital. There are some cases of the Omicron variant in the country.

Foreigners have been temporarily banned from entering Israel during the first two weeks of December while the impact of the Omicron variant is investigated and understood. Returning nationals will have to go into quarantine.

Aliyah for Ethiopians

Due to the worsening civil war in Ethiopia Israeli Ministers are drawing up plans to expedite the immigration of 5,000 Ethiopian Jews to Israel. The Cabinet has approved the travel of 3,000 within the coming weeks. These will be people who have first-degree relatives already living in Israel.

The remaining 2,000 will come later.

Preparations to stop Iran obtaining a nuclear bomb

Israel continues to prepare for the possibility of a military response and its consequences if negotiations, currently being held in Vienna, fail to halt Iran’s progress towards a nuclear bomb. Iran is already very close to having enough weapons grade uranium for this purpose.

Tel Aviv the world’s most expensive city to live in

Tel Aviv has been ranked the world’s most expensive city to live in thanks to the rapid rise in inflation that has pushed up the cost of a whole range of goods and services across the world in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Israeli city climbed five spots in the past 12 months to take the unwanted title away from last year’s joint winners of Paris, Hong Kong and Zurich. Tel Aviv’s surge up the table was partly due to the strength of the national currency, the shekel, against the dollar, as well increases in prices for transport and groceries.

 

Praise & Prayer

  • Pray the Lord’s protection over Naftali Bennett and his government so that the curses of the Ultra-Orthodox will be ineffective.
  • Praise the Lord that the government can now function properly following the budget approval.
  • Pray for the safety and security of Israel and its people. Pray that the Lord will make known the plans of its enemies so that they can be thwarted before they can be carried out.
  • Praise the Lord for the number of people that have made Aliyah this year and for the plans to bring more Ethiopian Jews to Israel. Pray that this will happen very soon.
  • Pray that it will be easier for Messianic Jews to make Aliyah to Israel under this government.
  • Pray for genuine and lasting reconciliation between the various groups in Israel. The divisions that surfaced in May will take much work and prayer to resolve.
  • Pray that the love and commitment to unity shown by Messianic and Arab Christian Pastors will be a beacon of light in the darkness.
  • Pray that eradicating poverty will be a priority for the government.
  • Pray against the rise in Anti-Semitism being witnessed throughout the world.
  • Pray that tourists will soon be able to return to Israel in large numbers and that the tourism industry can be rebuilt safely.
  • Pray that those negotiating with Iran will be given God’s wisdom and will not be taken in by false promises aimed at reducing sanctions.  
  • Pray that Israel does not have to take military action to prevent Iran obtaining a nuclear bomb. The consequences for the people and country would be very severe.

 

Save your people! Bless Israel, your special possession. Lead them like a shepherd,

    and carry them in your arms forever.  Psalm 28:9 (NLT)
