Prayer Points: February – March 2018

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

"The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." James 5:16 (KJV)

Biblical Prophecy

As we are fast approaching the end time scenario in the Middle East, we urge you to pray for the fulfilment of Biblical Prophecy. Jesus warned of coming wars in the last days. Israel is preparing for war in the North as tensions have risen significantly.

  • Pray that Israel will look to God for their protection and turn back to Him and His Word; that they will call out to their Messiah and that the full remnant will be saved.

“Return, faithless people; I will cure you of backsliding … in the Lord our God is the salvation of Israel.”   Jeremiah 3:22,23


Iranian Drone incident and its repercussions

On 10th February an Iranian drone flew from a base in Syria and entered Israeli airspace before being shot down. Israel retaliated by attacking the airfield from which the drone took off, Iranian missile stores and manufacturing facilities in Syria and targeting Syrian anti-aircraft batteries destroying two thirds of them. One Syrian missile exploded alongside an Israeli F16 aircraft injuring the pilots who had to eject leaving the aircraft to crash in Northern Israel.

  • Pray that the border with Syria will remain calm as the dust from this incident settles.
  • Pray for the protection of the citizens who live close to the Syrian border.
  • Praise the Lord that the abandoned F16 aircraft landed in open ground and that no-one on the ground was killed or injured.
  • Pray for the full recovery of the two pilots who were injured and had to eject.
  • Pray for the situation in Syria which is extremely complex with various wars within wars being waged in different parts of the country.


"You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday." Psalm 91:5-6



Security fence bomb and missiles from Gaza

On 17th February a bomb detonated on the security fence between Israel and Gaza injuring four IDF personnel. Missiles were also fired into Israel with one landing on a house in the Shaar Hanegev region – the house was damaged but no-one was injured. Israel responded by attacking Hamas Observation towers, tunnels and weapons factories in Gaza.

  • Praise God for His intervention to prevent the missile that hit the house from exploding.
  • Pray for the protection of the citizens who have to live with these attacks.
  • Pray that the children will not be traumatised by having to live under these threats.
  • Pray for the full recovery of the IDF personnel who were injured in the bomb blast.
  • Pray that confrontations and tensions in the area will die down.


"O God, do not keep silence; do not hold your peace or be still, O God! For behold, your enemies make an uproar; those who hate you have raised their heads." Psalm 83:1-2


Amir Tsarfati’s Middle East Updates

If you would like to understand better what is going on in Israel and particularly in Syria we highly recommend that you subscribe to/watch Amir Tsarfati’s Middle East Updates. His update on 14th February 2018 gives detailed analysis and explanation of the drone incident and the current situation in Syria. Amir puts everything that is happening into a Biblical context.

This link will take you to the 14th February Update:


The citizens of Gaza

The ordinary citizens of Gaza are living in the most appalling conditions. There is very little drinking water and electricity, which has only been connected 4 hours-a-day, may soon stop altogether. The UN Middle East Envoy recently described life for the citizens of Gaza as “beyond humanitarian crisis and on the verge of total systems failure.”

  • Pray for these poor and desperate people. Pray that the Lord will change the hearts of the Hamas government to use overseas aid money to rebuild houses, hospitals, the infrastructure and the lives of these people instead of being obsessed with attacking Israel and the Jews.


“Do not grant the wicked their desires, O Lord; do not let their plans succeed … I know that the Lord secures justice for the poor and upholds the cause of the needy.” Psalm 140:8,12


The rain continues and the Sea of Galilee rises

Heavy rain has been falling in Israel in February and between 14th and 21st February the water level in the Sea of Galilee had risen by 14 centimeters but it is still 68 centimeters below the “lower red line” – the level below which the water quality starts to deteriorate and the ecological balance is damaged. 

  • Praise the Lord for His grace and mercy to His people.
  • Give thanks for the rain that has fallen.
  • Pray that God will send more rain and that the lower red line will be reached/bettered.
  • Give thanks for what is to come – a season of rain.


"The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad; the desert shall rejoice and blossom like the crocus."

Isaiah 35:1


 As Jesus said:

We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; night is coming, when no one can work.

John 9:4
