Pray for Israel

Dear Heavenly Father,

I pray for the peace of Jerusalem.  Please Lord; show your mercies to Israel and its people. Right now there is so much violence and fighting going on that I pray Lord you will keep Israel unified and that their enemies will not be able to shatter the Country.

I ask Father for you to give wisdom and guidance to all those in a position of authority: the government, the Prime Minister, the Mayor and the officials.  Please watch over the soldiers, keep them safe and allow them the strength to defend their city, protect the civilians and keep them safe.

In the name of Jesus, I bind the enemy from having any hold on the city of Jerusalem or on the people who call Israel home.  Please loose the angels of the Lord to go and remove the veil that you placed on the Israeli so long ago. Please open their eyes so they may see that Jesus is the Messiah that they have been longing for.

Over the years you have always kept a remnant of Jerusalem, Israel and the Israeli people, knowing that one day Jesus would be returning.  Father, each day, our time grows closer to the day when Jesus will return and be King over this earth.

Your Word says that Israel is the apple of your eye and because of that I can have confidence that your people are protected and watched over by you while waiting for that precious day of Christ’s return. Please keep the covenant you made with Israel, please bless them with grace and mercy.  Allow their hearts to open to Jesus and give them peace.
