By the time Americans awaken to today, most Israelis will have already been to the polls. However, God is not bound by time, so there is still time to pray! Israel needs strong leadership in these days of turmoil and chaos in the Middle East, and this is perhaps the most important election in Israeli history.
Here’s a perspective from Amir Tsarfati, a Messianic Jewish Israeli. Take a look, then please spend a few minutes in prayer, asking the Lord to grant Israel favor as they elect a Prime Minister able to put together a strong, conservative coalition.
Here are some verses to guide you as you pray:
It is He who changes the times and the epochs;~Daniel 2:21
He removes kings and establishes kings;
He gives wisdom to wise men
And knowledge to men of understanding.
First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.~1 Timothy 2:1-2
Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.~Romans 13:1
The king’s heart is like channels of water in the hand of the Lord;~Proverbs 21:1
He turns it wherever He wishes.
15 “By me kings reign,~Proverbs 8:15-17
And rulers decree justice.
16 “By me princes rule, and nobles,
All who judge rightly.
17 “I love those who love me;
And those who diligently seek me will find me.”
