Dear Partners and Friends,
I am emailing you today about an urgent matter of prayer.
This month the United Nations will vote on a resolution to recognize a group of people, the Palestinians, as a legitimate nation. If successful, the Palestinians will undoubtedly move to claim the West Bank as their homeland and Jerusalem as their capital.
This would be catastrophic for the nation of Israel!
It has long been the stated policy of Israel’s enemies to destroy God’s chosen people and wipe the Jewish state off the map.
Terrorists and dictators surround Israel on every hand. Yet Israel remains a true bastion of democracy, standing alone in the Middle East as the nations of the world gather against her.
I thank God that we witnessed the fulfillment of His word in 1948, when He brought the Jewish people back to their land and the State of Israel was formed.
We know the land of Israel belongs to the Jews as their inheritance, given to them by God in a covenant with their patriarchs: Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
As the prophet Ezekiel tells us: “I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king over them all; they shall no longer be two nations, nor shall they ever be divided into two kingdoms again.”
Today I am asking you, our dear partners and friends, to pray for Israel. Together, let’s ask God for these specific things:
- First, pray that the United Nations will fail in their attempts to divide Israel with the creation of a Palestinian state.
- Next, pray the promise of God that Israel will never be divided into two kingdoms again.
- Pray also that the United States will remain a strong supporter and faithful ally of Israel.
- Finally, pray for the peace of Jerusalem, as God’s Word instructs us to do.
Dear friends, God promises to bless those that bless His chosen people, and curse those who curse Israel. Let’s join our faith in prayer at this critical hour, blessing Israel and asking God to intervene on her behalf.
Thank you for your prayers. May God bless you and the nation of Israel in the days ahead.
Yours in Christ,
