Prayer Points: March 2021

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

 

Hear my prayer, Lord;   listen to my cry for mercy.  When I am in distress, I call to you,
    because you answer me. Psalm 86:6-7

 

Israel General Election 23rd March

 Opinion polls are suggesting that small parties may decide the outcome of the upcoming general election. Benjamin Netanyahu and Gideon Sa’ar the leader of the New Hope Party are running neck and neck in opinion polls as to who would make the best Prime Minister.

The Coronavirus crisis in Israel

 The country’s lockdown was eased ahead of Purim but large gatherings over the holiday could lead to a new lockdown. On 1st March the reproduction rate has gone back up to 1 and there were 742 seriously ill in hospital of whom 232 are on ventilators. Ben Gurion Airport is closed until at least 7th March and visitors are not expected to be allowed in before Passover (23March-03April).

3.3 million people have had both doses of vaccine and another 1.4 million have had their first dose, which means that over half the population (8.75M) have had at least one dose. The government is debating whether schools should reopen soon.

 Attack on Israeli owned cargo ship

 On 25th February an Israeli owned commercial cargo vessel was attacked with mines/missiles near Oman. The ship did not sink and the crew were unhurt. The attack has been blamed on Iran and Israel responded by attacking Iranian interests near Damascus in Syria.

Praise & Prayer

  • Pray that the Lord will give Israel a fully functioning government following the election.
  • Pray for a more responsible attitude amongst the population towards combatting the virus, especially the Jewish religious groups and the Arabs.
  • Pray for all those who have contracted the virus, especially those in areas where the medical facilities are struggling to cope and lack the needed resources to fight the virus.
  • Pray for all those who are struggling to feed their families and pay their rent and other bills as a result of losing their jobs or being laid off on unpaid leave.
  • Pray for all those organisations that are reaching out to the poor and needy at this time.
  • Father God, we ask that you stand by the people of Israel and see them through this dark time.
  • Pray against the rise of Anti-Semitism in whatever form it takes.
  • Lord, we pray that you will heal the land of Israel from poverty. Provide food and clothing for the hungry and use MMT and its supporters in response to the cry of the poor.

 

The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry. The face of the LORD is against those who do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles.


Psalm 34:15–17
