Prayer Points: August – September 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)

 

Israel News

 

Baby boom: Hospitals in Israel are reporting higher than average numbers of new born babies. Israel currently has the highest fertility rate amongst the 34 member nations of the OECD.

 

Egypt to start importing natural gas from Israel: It is reported that Egypt has signed a 10 year deal to import natural gas from Israel starting early in 2019. The deal is estimated to be worth $15 billion.

 

The Nationality Law: The Nationality Law, which was recently approved by the Knesset, states that Israel is the Jewish people's nation state and establishes as law Israel's flag, symbols, the Hebrew language, and various other items mentioned in the Declaration of Independence. The law does not affect the rights of minority citizens in Israel. However, It has been criticized by PA officials. Former chief PA negotiator Saeb Erekat claimed the law “aims at destroying the two-state solution and replacing it with an apartheid regime.” The PA has asked the United Nations to expel Israel because of the law – their goal remains to wipe Israel off the map.

 

Drought: Israel’s drought is continuing into a fifth year. Israel is experiencing a hot dry summer with months to go before rain is due to fall again.

Praise & Prayer Points:

  • Praise the Lord for the blessing of children.
  • Praise God for the blessing of natural resources that will benefit the nation of Israel and its economy.
  • Pray that the PA will be unsuccessful in its attempts to destabilise Israel’s international relationships.
  • Intercede now for Israel’s coming rainy season (late October to mid-March). Pray that there will be abundant precipitation, providing for agricultural needs and the refilling of Israel’s lakes, seas and wells.

He provides rain for the earth; he sends water on the countryside.”   Job 5:10

  

Gaza

 

More than 70 rockets were fired into Israel from Gaza on 9th August raising concerns that full blown conflict could erupt. However, relative calm has returned . The weekly Friday demonstrations and riots along the border fence continue as do the incendiary kites. Israel has developed a system for tracking these devices which has reduced their impact but fires are still being started.

  • Thank the Lord for the few days of relative calm on the Israel–Gaza border. Pray that the Hamas-inspired violence will come to an end and a viable cease-fire will actually be put in place. Pray for the restoration of the land, vineyards, crops and income that have been decimated by incendiary terror.

 

Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem! Praise your God, O Zion! For he has strengthened the bars of your gates; He has blessed your children within you. He makes peace in your borders, and fills you with the finest wheat. Psalm 147:12-14

 

Russia, Israel and USA agree Iran must leave Syria

On 19th August the US administration said: “The objective of the United States, of Israel and Russia’s President Putin is to get Iran, Iranian forces, Iranian militias, Iranian surrogates out of the offensive operations they’re in both In Syria and Iraq, and, frankly, to end Iran’s support for Hezbollah.” Russia has already negotiated the withdrawal of Iranian forces to positions 85 kilometres/53 miles away from the Israel/Syria border. Russian military police now patrol the border and have requested the return of UN Peacekeepers who fled when the fighting got fierce.

  • Continue to pray for the safety and protection of this border by God and the IDF.

 

 “Indeed, He who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep,” Psalm 121:4

 

 

  

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
