Prayers for Israel and the region

 

  • Commit the political situation in Israel into the Lord’s hands. Pray that God will have His perfect way to appoint His chosen leadership to guide Israel in His perfect timing. Pray that Israel will get the government and leadership it needs at this time.
  • Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the peace of Israel. Pray that the Lord will keep the people and the land safe from outside attack, from missiles and incendiary devices. Ask God to put a shield around Israeli communities on the border with Gaza, providing His supernatural protection from the missiles and fires that the enemy is using to destroy land and property.
  • Pray for the families and children that are being traumatised by the constant need to rush to bomb shelters, the sleepless nights and the fear of being killed or injured.
  • Pray for the ordinary people of Gaza who live in desperate conditions and also suffer as the IDF responds to the missiles, mortars and incendiary balloons by attacking Hamas and Islamic Jihad infrastructure.
  • Pray for an end to the stabbings, shootings and car rammings. Pray for the family and friends of those killed and for a swift recovery for all those injured.
  • Pray for God to thwart Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Pray that Iran’s destabilising activities in the region will not spill over into a much greater conflict.

 

Lord, how many are my foes! How many rise up against me!

 Many are saying of me, “God will not deliver him.

 But you, Lord, are a shield around me,
    my glory, the One who lifts my head high.”

Psalm 3:1-3
