True prayer warriors for Israel are coming alive! Thanks for jumping on board our 31-day prayer journey together. Our train has definitely left the station, but we’re picking up passengers along the way! If not already, I hope you will commit with us to pray for Israel each day during the remainder of May.
Why May? Because May 14, 1948 is the day Israel was reborn as a nation. Ezekiel 37 prophesied that event over 2,500 years ago, and we have seen it fulfilled in our lifetime! But that is only half of the promise God gave in the midst of that prophecy. In Ezekiel 37:14, God says, “ I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live.” He is speaking of spiritual life, not just physical life!
So, we come to day 3 of our journey, with that promise of God breathing spiritual life into our Israeli friends. Yesterday, we learned of the great search by Israelis to know Jesus. Today, we pray for workers for the harvest, and for their courage!
Fear not, for I am with you;~Isaiah 41:10
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
Reaching their active online audience with high-quality evangelism and discipleship materials in Hebrew, Arabic, and English puts heavy demands on One for Israel staff. They constantly expand their team to keep up with the new seekers connecting with online chat and discipleship support. The team often faces death threats as they boldly proclaim the Gospel, so please pray for their inspiration today, as well as for their protection. Pray that God will bring encouragement and will guide their work.
Finally, pray for this Israeli seeker:
“I went to Thailand to learn to practice spiritual yoga and never questioned it. But then I discovered Yeshua, and while I feel so connected to His message, I have some hesitations. I’m confused because I have always been secular, and don’t know why I feel compelled to reject Yeshua as Judaism demands, when I never practiced Judaism. I’m trying to overcome my resistance and strengthen my faith. Thank you very much for the videos you upload – they help me a lot!”
