Hello! Welcome to Prayerful Thursday. Today, I’d like to focus on God’s people, Israel. I had originally planned to pray today for The Chosen, the TV series I have been showing you all, but we’ll get to that next week. This week, we will be discussing some recent breaking news. This has to do with the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, announcing a temporary halt to the extention of sovereignty. Here’s the blog which, as I read it, moved me to by command of the Spirit change our plans from praying for The Chosen to praying for Israel. Les Lawrence, the writer of Elishavision, which I am posting below, gives us many links to articles which we can gather information I’ll just be posting the link to Les’s blog:
1. For our first point, I’ll be posting another link which informs us of God’s peace plan as recorded in Scripture. After you read this report, please prayerfully consider the Scripture which the report alludes to. Here it is:
2. Now, let’s pray pertaining to Yeshua’s statements when weeping over Jerusalem:
“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! See, your house is left to you desolate; for I say to you, you shall see Me no more till you say, (Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!”” (Matthew 23:37-39, NKJV).
Now as He drew near, He saw the city and wept over it, saying, “If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close in on every side, and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation.” (Luke 19:41-44, NKJV).
I noticed how much space posting it straight from the Bible app was taking, so I decided to type it out on the New King James Version this time, although we are speaking more out of a Jewish Context and although I like better versions.
3. I’d also like us to pray for all of Israel’s salvation.
And then God will bring all of Israel to salvation. The prophecy will be fulfilled that says, “Coming from Zion will be the Savior, and he will turn Jacob away from evil.” (Romans 11:26, TPT).
4. Now, let’s pray that our other Gentile brothers and sisters in Christ pray according to Ruth 1:16, and pray for ourselves if any of us have not felt the urge from the Spirit to do this as well.
5. Lastly, we need to pray for Israel’s enemies’ salvation as well, Turkey leaning more toward Iran and being one:
