The US has been a trusted ally of Israel for many years. While we are thankful for our close friendship politically, our alliance with Israel spiritually as Christians is much stronger and deeper. As you are reading this, Hamas, a Palestinian militant group, is firing rockets into Israel. Our brothers and sisters there are preparing for a fight that could last for weeks. It is our responsibility as Christians to pray for their peace and safety. God expects us to fervently pray for them. We are to pray that His light shines in the midst of darkness and that God blesses them with financial and military assistance and diplomatic support.
“Pray for peace in Jerusalem. May all who love this city prosper. ” Psalm 122:6 (NLT)
I pray for the people of Israel right now. Your word tells me that they are the apple of Your eye. I pray that You bless them with peace and divine protection from the Palestinian enemies. I pray Your light shines in the midst of darkness and the US will provide diplomatic support and assistance to our friends. As their enemies are coming against them to kill them, Lord I pray that You lift up a standard against them. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
