God is giving his people the prayer strategy for this pivotal time in the history of mankind.
Prayers for Israel
Prayer 1 for the Relationship of Israel and America
Father, in the name of Jesus, I bring before you the tenuous relationship between the United States and Israel. It is my prayer that we in America will always stand by this nation and pray for the peace of Jerusalem! I call for a spiritual awakening for the leaders of America and the other nations you have assigned to stand by her, and pray that we will reinforce the security of Jerusalem. May peace be within her walls and security within her towers! For my brothers and companions’ sake I will say, “Peace be within you!” For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I will seek your good, O Israel.
Scripture Reference: Psalm 122
In the name of Jesus, I come before the Throne of Grace on behalf of the people of Israel to ask for mercy and grace to help in time of need. Father, show them your steadfast love and grant them your salvation. Let them hear what you, O LORD, will speak, for you will speak peace to your people, to those you have called to be saints; let them not turn back to folly. Surely your salvation is near to those who hear you that glory may dwell in their land.
Scripture Reference: Psalm 85:7-9
Prayers For the Middle East
LORD, I bring before you the Middle Eastern Countries. I pray that you will bless and keep these precious people from destruction. I thank you for those who are laboring with undiminished determination to bring peace between the nations. LORD, make your face to shine upon them all and be gracious to the people…lift up your countenance upon them and give them peace.
We pray that you will bless all the spiritual seed of Abraham. Reveal Jesus to the leaders so that they will know that He is the Son of the Living God. Show them the way of justice and mercy…the way of peace in the Strong and Powerful name of Jesus.
Scripture References: Numbers 6:24-26
