News & Prayer Points: August 2020

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


For the Lord will not reject his people;
    he will never forsake his inheritance. Psalm 94:14



Annexation - This issue has gone very quiet and no announcement has been made.


Covid-19 Pandemic - Concerns continue over the rise in infection rates and 3,000 IDF reservists have been called up to help with the fight against the virus. As of 3rd August 541 people in Israel have died of the virus. The Knesset has been torn between the need to restart the economy and keeping the virus under control.


Lebanon Border tension - Tensions remain high in the North after the IDF thwarted a Hezbollah terrorist attack on 27th July near Mount Dov along the border with Lebanon. The IDF is concerned Hezbollah might still carry out an attack against them. A Hezbollah cell, which numbered between three and five operatives, crossed the border, also known as the Blue Line, several meters into sovereign Israeli territory and was identified by the IDF, which opened fire on them causing them to flee back into Lebanon.


Syria Border tension - On 3rd August the IDF thwarted a four-man team from Syria who tried to lay explosives along the border.


Gaza Missile - The IDF made retaliatory strikes in Gaza several hours after a rocket was fired from northern Gaza towards Sderot on 2nd August. The Iron Dome missile defence system successfully intercepted the rocket – the first fired from Gaza in almost a month.


Prayer points


  • Pray that the Lord will give great wisdom to the political and military leaders to know how to respond to the challenges inside the country and in the surrounding countries.
  • Pray that the IDF personnel protecting the northern border will be kept safe especially from any kidnap attempts. Pray also for the civilian population living near the border.
  • Pray that the Covid-19 virus will be kept under control and that a good balance can be found that will allow the economy to recover and allow people to get back to work.
  • Pray for all those who are struggling to survive, unable to pay their rent and utility bills and put food on the table. Pray that the government will have a heart for their predicament and provide them with support.
  • Pray that the Lord will help those whose job it is to protect Israel’s borders to stay alert and vigilant to repel any incursions.



"Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?”  2 Chronicles 1 : 10
