I am coming to you with an urgent request to pray for Israel.

Israel is at the brink of a war. In the heaviest fighting since 2014, Israel and Hamas have been engaged in a bitter fight in the last few days.

After a secret Israeli raid that was exposed and the gunfight that ensued, a Palestinian anti-tank missile blew up an Israeli bus, seriously wounding a 19-year-old soldier. Israel has predictably retaliated with airstrikes and tank fire. Close to 200 Palestinians are said to be dead and thousands wounded. The fighting has threatened to disrupt peace talks that have been going on for several months now.

It may not be the right time to fix the blame. Now, is the time to calm the nerves, for tempers to be cooled down. Israel has the right to guard its territory. Intelligence, surveillance and raids to neutralize threats to its nation are Israel’s right just as it is for any nation.

Psalm 122:6 invokes us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Peace in Jerusalem is integral to the Middle East’s well being and prosperity. It may not be an exaggeration to say world peace hinges on peace in Israel. In the end days, just as it is prophesied in the Bible, the happenings in Israel would be pivotal to what is going to be unveiled to the peoples of the nations.

So, my dear prayer warriors pray for peace in Israel. Pray for the following points:

  • Pray for wisdom to prevail on both the Israelis and the Hamas terrorists.
  • Pray for an immediate cessation of hostilities.
  • Pray for the world leaders to intervene and restrain both from inflicting more damage.
  • Pray for the hand of God to be revealed in a supernatural way to protect His people.
  • Pray for the designs of the enemies to be thwarted. No weapon formed against Israel shall prosper. Amen.

  1. Amen. Yes the Lord commands to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Thank you for reminding us. Let us pray His will. Let us intercede with our Lord and Saviour who is seated at the right hand of the Father. Of the 5 points of prayer you’ve mentioned, in point No. 3, world leaders have often intervened, and of course if our Lord can use a donkey, He can use them. We pray He will use them for His plan and purposes. He never sleeps nor slumbers. He is forever on the throne and His will, will be done. Let us seek His will in prayer.
