With all that is going on in Israel the past two weeks, here are seven key ways we can pray:
- Pray for peace
- Psalm 122:6 reminds us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem
- Pray for protection
- Pray for comfort
- Pray for the furtherance of Gospel
- Pray for the repentance of the terrorists
- Pray for hostages
- Pray for leadership and wisdom
Bonus: FirmIsrael, a ministry in Israel, gave this list of things to pray for:
- The safe return of at least 199 hostages being held in Gaza back to Israel. Join our initiative to pray for hostages by name daily here: https://firmisrael.org/praybyname/
- That war would not break out on multiple fronts. Hezbollah, a terrorist organization in Lebanon, has been testing Israel’s northern border with small scale attacks.
- Israel will almost certainly launch a ground invasion of the Gaza Strip. Pray for protection for the innocent civilians in Gaza that Hamas uses as human shields. Pray for the IDF to accomplish their mission safely and quickly.
- That the local body would continue to find more opportunities to reflect the love of Yeshua (Jesus) as they work on the frontlines to meet the needs of those affected by this crisis.
