Special Episode – Prayer for Israel

Sep 1, 2023

Why do we believe as we believe for Israel and for the Jewish people? Because God said to. This is a Scriptural mandate to the Gentile Church that we comfort His people and be part of what God is doing to restore the Jewish people to their land. On this foundation we stand and pray with an intense focus that God will end the current pattern of division and violence within Israel and fulfill His Words over His people right now before our eyes.

As we enter into the time of the Fall feasts, I believe there is an urgent need for prayer that is focused on Israel and the Jewish people, and I am making a request to you for intercession during this time. The reason is because of a deep burden on my heart. It concerns me that Israel is being affected and impacted by the same spirits of anger and division that are devouring many nations on the earth.

At this moment in Israel we are seeing protests over judicial reform that almost bring cities to a halt and stop the normal flow of function. There is also a great deal of division manifesting between ultra-Orthodox and Orthodox Jews. There have actually been proposals floated to break up Israel into two Jewish states. In addition we see new levels of violence beginning to take place within Israel, not just between Jews and Arabs but especially against Christians.

According to His Word and His promises, the purpose that God has for Israel is not to fall into the world’s pattern but instead to be an example and an illustration that the world should follow. And we need to pray with a renewed intensity and determination that we will see with our own eyes the fulfillment of those Words. Our faith for Israel and the Jewish people is not based on current events, but because God has made a covenant by the oath of Himself to the nation and people of Israel. And He uses this relationship He has with them to prove Himself to all the earth.

Key Verses:

  • Jeremiah 31:33–36. “This is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel.”
  • Ezekiel 36:22–23. “The nations will know that I am the LORD … when I prove Myself holy among you.”
  • Numbers 14:15–17. “The nations … will say, ‘Because the LORD could not bring this people into the land which He promised.’”
  • Ezekiel 36:24–30. “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you.”
  • Isaiah 24:5. “The earth is also polluted by its inhabitants.”
  • Ezekiel 11:17–20. “I will give them one heart, and put a new spirit within them.”
  • Jeremiah 32:38-41. “I will give them one heart and one way.”


  • “Do we love the Jewish people? Yes. Do we see the benefit of Judaism in its relationship to Christianity and what it provides for us as believers? Absolutely. But the foundation that we are building everything upon is the Scriptures themselves.”
  • “These blessings that God is proclaiming are solidified before God. They are a covenant. They are His Word that He has given that these Words will be fulfilled. They will take place before our very eyes.”
  • “Will there be a judicial reform? Yes, there will, because they will walk in His statutes and His ordinances and be His people. And that will manifest, because, again, it is part of the promise that God has made to Israel.”


  1. We need to determine with an intensity that we are going to see the Words over Israel fulfilled before our eyes. They are not for another generation. We cannot put them off to sometime in the future. This is a prayer of urgency. We are praying now that we see these Words fulfilled now.
  2. Remember that Christian support of Israel must be born out of obedience in faith to the Word of God and not rooted in Israel’s actions. Whatever is happening now, it does not change our stance, our faith, and our determination.
  3. The ultimate fulfillment of the Word is God glorifying Himself, not just before Israel, but before all of the nations of the world. That is the end game. That is what we are looking to see. Therefore our prayer is, “Lord, glorify Yourself through the fulfillment of your Word.” Amen.
