I hope you are participating in the Isaiah 62 prayer event. It began on May 7 and will continue through Pentecost on May 28, so you’re not too late! God’s Word teaches us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:~Psalm 122:6-9
“May they prosper who love you.
7 Peace be within your walls,
Prosperity within your palaces.”
8 For the sake of my brethren and companions,
I will now say, “Peace be within you.”
9 Because of the house of the Lord our God
I will seek your good.
To seek the good through pray to the God of Israel is a Biblical principle, but we do it out of love for God and our desire to be pleasing to Him. There is no better time to develop the habit of praying for Israel than right now.
One of my favorite passages of prayer, though, is Isaiah 62. It is a fantastic prayer guide, so please take a moment right now to read it, then come back for encouragement!
It is rich with prayer guidance, isn’t it! So over the next few days, consider meditating on only one verse, or a portion of a verse, from that passage and with Israel as the focus, pray according to that verse. I promise God will honor the time you spend with Him lifting up the land and the people He uniquely called. He will bless you as well as you pray according to His will!
Did you know there is a worldwide call to prayer that culminates on May 28? That is Pentecost, when God sent the Holy Spirit in power to indwell the church, and I’m expecting God to do some amazing things! What if God honors the prayers of a million faithful believers praying for His might kingdom? What an amazing difference it would make…all because we were obedient to do what God’s Word commands us to do!
Why not become part of “amazing” by joining over a million worldwide who are praying for Israel every single day, awaiting the Lord’s glory to show forth this coming Pentecost.
