The following is shared with you to help you in your own praying and interceding.
These are prayer directions rather than prayer points.
We want to leave room for the Holy Spirit to lead you and your group to pray as you are led.
If you would like to receive these Prayer Directions regularly, or
If at any time you want to be removed from the list, please write us at:
Eph. 2:18 For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.
Eph. 2:19 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,
Eph. 2:20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone,
Eph. 2:21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord,
Eph. 2:22 in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
1Pet. 2:5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
The verses above clearly point to the way God sees His people (the believers in Messiah). They are His Holy Temple, they are His priests! This is the believer’s calling and purpose. To come near to God and serve Him, among other things, as intercessors.
The great need of Israel right now is for prayer and intercession
If ever there was a time Israel needed prayer it is now! Israel’s very nature and character as a state will be shaped by the next government. It is a critical time here in the land; what will the nature of the State be formed into in the next few years?
While some are celebrating Bibi’s win, most do not realize that the Orthodox parties also won in a big way; they significantly increased in power and influence and will be a deciding element in the next government.
While this is not the place to try to expound on the meaning of such a reality, we can at least mention that the agenda of the Orthodox parties is to force the religious law on the land. They want Israel not only to be Jewish but Orthodox! They will do their utmost to change the law to Halacha laws, (religious laws governing the state and life in general.) This is a bit like Sharia laws in Muslim countries, which is increasingly influencing western countries.)

by Jacob Shapiro: The Age of Bibi
This is the time to pray! As coalition negotiations begin, heads of parties are going to exact a heavy price for their support of Bibi. Each leader will want a ministry in which he could best influence the nation and shape it according to his party’s vision, and to use the nation’s resources to reach those goals.
Praying for the Body of Messiah in the Land
There has never been more of a need in this nation for the Body to come into its true call to be a Spiritual House for the Lord and to be a priesthood.
Personally, I have been deeply moved by the Lord to stand on, and pray from the verses given above for the Body of Messiah.
I am sure that if you look at your own congregation wherever you live, you will see the need of the Body! Most of the Church doesn’t have a clue as to its calling and purpose. So much of church life revolves around ‘what God can do for me’ and not ‘What does God want me to be and do for Him’!
May God awaken you to the need of the hour and may you respond by giving yourself to Him to pray, seek His face and intercede for His own agenda, so clearly spelled out in His Word.
May the Lord help you and us and may we be found faithful!
Blessings from Jerusalem,
