Seven Ways You Can Pray for Israel

Holy Land Key coverI’m very excited about the release of my new book,The Holy Land Key, next week!  If you  are at Maranatha Chapel this weekend, we’ll have a special “prerelease” event where you can get the book a couple days early. I want to thank the Lord for Maranatha Chapel, for all of you being part of this great journey — I couldn’t have done it without you! In anticipation of this book and the impact I pray it makes, we’ve put together some prayer points specifically for Israel, based on The Holy Land Key.  I will post one each day for the next seven days and ask for you to pray with me for Israel and her people.  Thank you for being part of the journey , and especially for your prayers!

Seven Ways You Can Pray for Israel

Day 1

 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem 

Psalm 122:6: Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May they prosper who love you.” Peace be within your walls… 

Peace in Jerusalem is the key to peace on earth. The turmoil in the Middle East sends waves of unrest and uncertainty to the rest of the world. Jerusalem is the city where God chose to “put His name” (1 Kings 14:21 and several other passages). When we pray for Jerusalem, we connect with the heart of God and seek to be part of what He is doing in our world. When there is true, lasting peace in Jerusalem, there will be peace on earth.

Dear Lord, Prince of Peace, we know that it is only Your healing touch that will heal the land of Your people. We pray that soon we all will see and know You, our Messiah, Savior, and the One who will bring peace to the land.
