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 at any time you want to be removed from the list, please write us at:
Rom. 10:3 For, being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness.
By far the biggest stumbling block for Israel is this very thing, that we have sought and are still seeking (actively searching) to establish our own righteousness. But mind you, we are reading this in Romans 10. Chapters 9-11 declare Israel’s restoration to God. There is Hope!
How will this be done? Zechariah 12:10-13:1 Read it and you will see it is by the Holy Spirit.
It is He who will come to our nation and by His mighty grace and power, will open our eyes to see God’s Son, and to turn to Him whom we have pierced. God the Spirit will come in person to reveal the Son of God, the crucified Messiah, the Lamb of God, to our nation! This is what the Holy Spirit does! He always turns the heart and mind of man to Yeshua. In that passage it is clearly seen: It will be personal, it will be national, it will be by the Holy Spirit.
- We prayed For the the Holy Spirit, to open the blinded eyes of the Jewish people to Messiah
- We prayed For the Holy Spirit to come in great heart-breaking grace and impart repentance to our nation.
- We prayed For the Lord to break the power of religion that has so gripped parts of our nation.
- We prayed for mercy and grace to be poured out like a flood on our people.
- We prayed for the relief that imparted righteousness brings and the joy that it gives to those who believe.
- We prayed for the same kind of revival in the Body as in the Land - to see Yeshua afresh
- We prayed for the bride’s heart to be turned again to His face, rather than His hand, or strength or His wealth.
- We prayed for revived faith in believers to walk after Messiah and to stop pursuing this world and its pleasures.
- We prayed For the real Holy Spirit to fill the Body and not another (see 2Cor 11:4)
- We prayed “Give us a heart for you, O Lord, only you and naught else.”
- We prayed for simplicity and a single eye
Regathering of Israel from the nations - a longing for Zion
Psa. 137:1 By the rivers of Babylon,There we sat down, yea, we wept When we remembered Zion.
The heart-desire of God for Zion echoed in Psalm 132:13-14 and in Zechariah 8:2-3, expresses itself as a great longing for Zion in his people. The Jewish people long for the Land and for God, the Christians in the earth long for the Kingdom of God and the heavenly Jerusalem (or so they should).
- We prayed for this great longing to be renewed in the hearts of all the Jewish people living in the diaspora (called exile in the Bible)
- We prayed for this longing to motivate the Jews to make Aliya (come back to the Land from whatever nations they are scattered through).
- We prayed For this same longing to come upon the hundreds of thousands of Israelis who have left the country permanently.
- We prayed for the Messianic Jews in the world to be deeply stirred by this longing to come to the Land.
Protection of God’s land and people in her time of restoration
Psa. 137:7 Remember, O LORD, against the sons of Edom The day of Jerusalem, Who said, “Raze it, raze it, To its very foundation!”
The Edomites, who became a rival nation to the east of Israel’s borders, came to the aid of the Babylonians when they came to destroy Jerusalem. This verse expresses their utter hatred for all of what Israel meant for the work of God on the earth. They became symbolic of all those who have a heart-hatred for Israel and for the purposes of God in restoring her.
- We prayed for the divine protection of the Lord over the land
- We prayed for the Lord to continue to build up Zion (Psa. 102:16 For the LORD shall build up Zion; He shall appear in His glory.)
- We prayed for our government and for our armed forces and for Israel’s security in various ways and aspects.
