I Prayed have prayed
Lord, please soften hearts toward Israel. Silence the lies of the media, and let people around the world see the Jews as You do.

On October 7, my family and I were in Jerusalem, serving at Succat Hallel, a prayer house offering up 24/7 prayer and worship for over 20 years in Jerusalem. I was outside walking in the early morning when I started to hear an unbelievable number of rockets being intercepted by the Iron Dome. It sounded like non-stop fireworks show in the distance. The wails of the air raid sirens pierced through that tranquil morning and sent me running to the shelter with my wife and young children. The memories of those first days are seared in my memory like the images from the 9/11 terror attacks on America.

Pray for your fellow intercessor.

 

Since the first reports of the massacre along the Gaza border on the morning of October 7, the antichrist-inspired media immediately started spinning its own version of truth, in which maintaining the “narrative” holds more weight than the truth. What was most surprising to me following the attacks was the vile antisemitism taking place in our public schools, universities, the halls of Congress and in the public square in America and around the western world. We are seeing the rage of Satan on display as described in Psalms 2. While there were still babies laying in pools of their own blood and families burned alive still smoldering, I witnessed reporters (along with people who proclaim to be Christian) defend the Hamas terrorists. This antisemitic rhetoric came in the form of the same propaganda that was being pushed by Hamas and Iranian funded media outlets wrapped in “sophisticated” language and the “complexity” of the situation.

Until the last few weeks, it was difficult for me to see how the biblical prophecy could come to pass where every nation would turn their back on Israel (Zechariah 12:3, 14:2-3). But with the endemic cancer of antisemitism in the nations of the world the path to international rejection of the Jewish people is clear. Before the weeks following the terrorist attacks, I could never understand Holocaust denial or how people could take the side of the Nazis. We are now witnessing this same antichrist spirit prevail over the hearts of people who support the evil perpetuated by Hamas. Now I have witnessed how evil desires have overcome man in the absence of the light of the Holy Spirit. “From the river to the sea” means genocide of the Jews, just as in Nazi Germany. We need a generation of Dietrich Bonhoeffers to rise in this hour, take a stand, and refuse to be silenced.

I attended a special service on November 29 at Cornerstone Chapel in Leesburg, VA where senior pastor Gary Hamrick facilitated a conversation with native Israeli Amir Tsarfati of Behold Israel. Tsarfati’s mission is “to provide reliable and accurate reporting on developments in Israel and the region.” I watched the crowd of about 1,300 look on in shock as he detailed the brutality and torture massacre of October 7. His account felt weighty in the room.

I thought that surely this was not the first time people have heard these gruesome details. I asked a few people about whether they had heard what actually happened before that night, and the response was mixed. The fact that anyone could be in the audience without a clear picture of the atrocity carried out by the Hamas terrorists is a testament to how far the media has fallen. It also called attention to how important these type of church services and conversations are for us to be effective allies of the Jewish people and support God’s biblical narrative of Israel.

In the conversations I have had with Jews in Israel and the U.S. over the last two months since the war broke out, I have learned that their view of Christians is generally not all that favorable. They have consistently felt abandoned throughout history. Our support means more now than ever. On the plane ride back to the U.S., I had a lengthy conversation with an Orthodox Jewish woman. I told her about how we were in Jerusalem to pray for Israel. She was moved to tears when I told her about the millions of Christians who prayed for Israel during the Isaiah 62 fast in the spring of 2023. She was shocked and encouraged to learn about the level of support from Christians around the world. I think this is an indicator that God is softening the hearts of the Jewish people, that He will replace the hearts of stone with hearts of flesh.

The media consistently shows the pro-Hamas protests, which legitimizes them At the same time, the media downplays or fails to cover the pro-Israel demonstrations. On November 14, 2023, I attended the Pro-Israel march on the National Mall in Washington, D.C, with nearly 300,000 in attendance. The headline from Associated Press (AP) that was parroted around the country read “Tens of thousands of supporters of Israel rally in Washington, crying ‘never again.’” I have been to many large gatherings on the Mall and this was by far the largest I have seen, far more than the “tens of thousands” the AP described. I held a sign that said “Christians stand with Israel” and received many heartfelt words of appreciation from Jews in attendance. The march also had bipartisan support, with speeches from many Democrats and Republicans from both chambers of Congress. The newly elected Speaker of the House Mike Johnson received what was probably the biggest cheer when he stated how ridiculous the calls for a permanent cease fire were.

There’s more you haven’t seen in the media. The Wednesday before October 7, during Sukkot (Festival of Tabernacles), thousands of Christians from all over the world gathered to march through the streets of Jerusalem to show support for Israel and the Jewish people. This type of thing would never see the light of day in the legacy media. It was beautiful to witness Jewish families watching the parade as the name of Yeshua, Jesus, was being exalted in the streets. I see this a partial fulfillment, or a shadow, of Zechariah 14 where the gentile nations who once opposed Israel would come up to worship alongside Israel during Sukkot and the nations who did so would be blessed. The groups from the nations would sing worship songs in their native style and language.  At the same time hundreds of thousands of Jewish families from all over the world were streaming up to Jerusalem to worship during Sukkot at the Western Wall. We need more of the global church to be on display in support and solidarity with Israel and the Jewish people.

Along with many of my Christian brothers and sisters I am left with the question of what can I do? As the church of America we must not remain silent. The false doctrine of replacement theology must cease to exist. The even more insidious apathy of the self-absorbed western Church that ignores Israel must cease. We can no longer deny that the Bible that we read is centered around Israel from Genesis to Revelation. We can no longer ignore that the Jesus we serve was a Jew. While I do not feel like my voice of support reaches a particularly large audience, I know it made an impact for those few I spoke with and those people matter to God. Practically, how can we engage in the fight? We can pray, have the hard conversations in our friend groups or spheres of influence, give to organizations serving in Israel and even buy products made in Israel as their tourism industry is virtually non-existent now.

In this hour of history, we have the honor to be asked of God to take a stand for the “apple of His eye” and a people that were named by God. Will you stand and be a Hadassah (Esther) in this generation or will deliverance of the Jews come from another?

I, too, am horrified at the rising anti-semitism in the wake of the brutal, evil, attacks by Hamas on Oct 7. I also abhor the calls for a cease fire. Israel has to defend herself. The leaders of Hamas have said they will do attacks like this one again and again. Come, Lord Jesus. Father God, help and support Israel and wake the western world up to stand on the side of Israel against this demonic regime which is even willing to behead babies. Come, Lord Jesus.

Responsibility is a word that takes action from each of us; it is a word that without action it is without meaning.
God, in His wisdom, laid out the rules and actions each of us is required to take.
When we witness a wrong, we are asked to make it right, when we see a hungry person, we are asked to feed them, we, as children of God have been given all the “actions” that are required for each wrong, atrocity, and, mistreatment of our fellow humans, whether they be white, black, red; male or female, Christian or non-Christian.
A Prayer requires action, to go before the God of this universe, on our knees, and talk to Him, the one who made this world, who breathed life in our bodies, and loved us so much HE gave us HIS only son, Christ the Lord.

For those who can physically take action against the malice in Israel, I thank you; You are God’s child; for those who support Israel with Money, God is pleased that we share our goods with those who need it most…For those who, on their knees are talking to GOD, and reaching the heavens for Israel, we are praying wall of protection around each man, woman, and child in Israel.
It is a commandment from our creator, to intercede for our brothers and sisters.

Father in Heaven, this world, this planet is your footstool, I pray that your mighty wisdom penetrates each of us, we pray for those who are blinded by satan, the darkness, can be made to see, and feel the need to take responsibility for our brothers and sisters in Israel; We come before you and ask for forgiveness, for our blind and deaf attitude; to see Israel as YOU see them, the chosen ones, your people. We ask forgiveness for our arrogance and blindness and pray for the Holy Spirit to come as a balm to the blind.

In Christ’s name I pray, Amen

God of truth, convict the hearts of those who write and report the news to be truthful about the crises in Israel.

O God, do not remain silent; do not turn a deaf ear, do not stand aloof, O God. See how Your enemies growl, how Your foes rear their heads. With cunning they conspire against Your people; they plot against those You cherish. Psslm 83:1-3

My husband and I have made many comments since October 7 of the fact that news outlets have white-washed and “tidied up” the atrocities of that day. Maybe if more could see the atrocities they would believe their eyes, not the lies of fake news. No, it is not pretty but remember how hearts were awakened when the Holocaust camps were finally revealed and they were seen for what they were?
Of course, we pray for the peace of Israel and join with our brothers and sisters believing for God’s protection and His strength to prevail over the enemy.

    Most media has done a shameful bit, can not call it journalism in most cases due to the obvious prejudice against Israel and Bibi.
    But also because of the knee jerk misuse of Palestinians. Even most media has lumped in Hamas with all of civilian Palestinians.
    While I do want media to report truth, we believers must pray for deliverance from those ancient evil spirits who take captive so many minds, here and abroad, because this is a spiritual war, not ‘simply’ geopolitical.
    I say fast too should Poppa G-D put it on your heart.

Brothers and Sisters, let’s be sure to remember the prophetic dream for September where God sent His angels to guard every Christian and every state and we walked each state and used the anointing oil and prayed. I believe this is protecting us and our families right now from terrorists’ attacks. We can pray against the prophecy of “As goes Israel, so goes America” and as we pray remember what God has already done. May this be real in our minds as we continue to pray and stand for Israel 🇮🇱. Amen!! 😃

So wonderful to hear the truth from someone believeable!! God bless you Brandon Thatcher!! Everywhere we routinely go we have opportunities to talk to people about Israel and the Messiah. This is quite doable if we are aware of the people around us and are listening to Holy Spirit. This is something God has led me to do. It’s enjoyable to talk to the people and share the truth about the things that are happening now. Holy Spirit shows us the opportunities to speak up. If the person is not receptive because we didn’t hear Holy Spirit correctly, just wish them good day. Also want to say bless your precious wife, your helpmate. Keep on keeping on!!!

God bless you for sharing this and reminding us of our moral responsibility to pray daily, and hourly at times for the apple of God’s eye, the Jews, not just in Israel but in our own neighborhoods. Heavenly Father, we ask you to bless Israel with peace that does NOT involve giving up any of their land. Keep them safe and give Benjamin Netanyahu and Israel’s leadership wisdom that comes from a personal relationship with Yeshua. Protect the IDF and IAF as they go through the rigors of their duties, Give angelic visions where needed and thank You for their assistance at all times for your chosen ones. In Yeshua’s name I pray. Amen

While I appreciate this author’s zeal, I must say that it is grossly misplaced. The reason there are so many protests around the world is due to the grave violations of human rights and international law that is occurring before everyones eyes due to the brutal response and collective punishment by Israel on innocent Palestinians who are trapped in Gaza and have no where to go. People are not protesting because they support Hamas. This is totally a lie.

It would serve our Christian witness to Israel and the world better if, rather than supporting such atrocities on either side, that we as Christians were empathetic to all parties involved and stand for a just solution to the displaced Palestinians as a result of Israels establishment and now military occupation of the West Bank and blockade of Gaza. There is no peace without justice and as Christians we are called to be peacemakers. I am grieved that this article essentially labels me as anti-semitic because I support an immediate ceasefire so that the parties involved can work toward a lasting just and peaceful solution without killing and violence. I am all for Israel’s right to exist and for their security. However, security that is achieved on the back of human right violations as perpetrated by Israel against the Palestinians for decades is not a lasting security. My Christian values demand better than just saying we need to support Israel at any cost. This misplaced support damages our witness to Israel and especially to the Muslim world.

    The “Innocent Palestinians” you mention – a survey shows that only 13% of the Palestinians feel Hamas was wrong – that means 87% of the “innocent”support the murderous Hamas. While Hamas (and Iran backing them) proudly proclaim they are proud of what they did (raping, beheading, destroying), continues to say they will do it again, and again, and again, if given the chance. Then they proclaim they will do it to America next! I stand AGAINST a cease fire. These people are being led by a satanic spirit that wants to kill, steal and destroy. While I pray for them to be saved, I stand for Israel and say they have the right to eliminate Hamas and the spirit behind Hamas.

    With all due respect, Mr. Masso, your viewpoint is also misplaced. The Palestinians who live in Gaza voted for Hamas to be leaders of their population. They are taught in school to hate all Jews, and that is why they perpetrated this horrific attack on Israel. There was no military occupation of Gaza. There is no lasting and peaceful solution to this as long as the Palestinians (most, but not all) are taught to hate the Jewish people. There have been many attempts to offer a two-state solution to them, which have been denied every time. There was a ceasefire in place prior to the unprovoked attack on innocent Israeli citizens on October 7th. I wonder how you would feel differently if it was a member of your family that was burned alive or had a baby cut out of the mother’s stomach and then dismembered before her very eyes. This was a barbaric attack on the most vulnerable people of Israel. I pray that your eyes and heart will be open to the truth.

      December 10, 2023

      What Hamas did was horrific and unjustifiable. You seem to be missing my point that one killing of innocent lives does not justify the disproportionate response of killings many multiples more. I thought this was a Christian site? What happened to Christians standing for justice and peace instead of hatred and retaliation? There are obviously many narratives about what is really going on there and we could argue all day about which one is right. In my opinion, much of what you have stated is simply Israel’s version and does not consider many other nuances and views and realities.
      My main point is that it would serve the kingdombetter for believers to avoid the rhetoric so often involved in this conflict, forcing people to pick and choose sides, and end up labeling the other side as this or that. Rather we should stand for justice for all parties, upholding the Christian values to love our enemies, turn the other cheek, be peacemakers and show some empathy to all who suffer.

      Both you and Mr. Masso fail to reflect on something that is hidden from view:
      Hamas has intentionally put the Palestinians’ lives in danger when they anticipate retaliation from Israel. Palestinians are placed in locations where the Hamas terrorists are storing supplies and shooting. Most recently, they were housing themselves in a hospital. Furthermore, Hamas refuses to allow the Palestinians from leaving the location where Hamas is housed. Therefore, if Israel bombs their location, Israel gets blamed for the murder of the innocent civilian lives. This is sick. Know this: The blood of any of those civilians’ lives lies on the heads of the Hamas terrorists.

        Mark Masso
        December 10, 2023

        With all due respect, I disagree that the collective punishment taking place in Gaza is all Hamas fault. I have heard many interviews from respected leaders on the ground in Gaza such as with directors from Doctors Without Borders, the Red Crescent, professional journalists, UN leaders and Gazan’s themselves who see firsthand how entire families have been killed who have nothing to do with Hamas and where Hamas’s operatives were no where near to be found. In addition, it is Israel that controls all utilities to Gaza and is using them as a weapon to collectively punish the people. This is inhumane and must stop. I do not think you really understand that Gazans are trapped and not allowed to leave Gaza and that they are trying to move to safe zones but are getting killed as they do so, all in the name of being used as human shields. So saying Israel is doing everything it can to evacuate them is simply not true. If they cut off internet and phone lines and issue evacuation orders quickly in the midst of chaos, how are the Gazans suppose to heed their instructions.
        It is incumbent upon Israel per international law to provide evidence they only target Hamas operatives when so many civilians are being killed. In most cases they have failed to do this and in many cases have actually been proven wrong. While some cases may be true, this indiscriminate approach is a war crime that should bring concern to us all. As an example, if one of your children were held hostage by a gunman at a school here in the USA, would it be ok for our military to bomb the entire school killing innocent children and teachers just so they can say they got the bad guys? I don’t think you would feel that way about your own kids. We no longer live in the age when this type of warfare is permissible according to international law. It should not only be condemned but international law requires all parties to do everything they can to prevent such atrocities. This type of violence will only produce more violence and will not produce lasting security.

    You comments about Jewish occupation and the innocent Palestinians is not correct. All but a small percentage ( 13%) of Palestinians in Gaza support the massacre. Their children are raised to hate a d practice the slaughter of Jews. 55 Muslim countries refuse to allow Palestinians into their countries due to the evil they have perpetrated upon their hosts. The Palestinians “ river to the sea,calls for the genocide of all Jews in Israel and then the west, then all Christians until Islam rules in this world. Their position is evil and heinous and the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob will not permit this. I do not know if you are indoctrinated in this evil or an indoctrination if not both. There is never an excuse for 10/7 especially since Israel left Gaza in 2005.

I have been moved to tears reading this article. Christians all over the world need to understand that the Church has been separated from its’ Jewish roots for about 2,000 years, and suffers the consequences, as a result. When we are born-again, our spiritual DNA becomes Jewish, and we are grafted into the Commonwealth of Israel. Quite frankly, it means we become spiritually Jewish. Israel is our country and the Jewish people our brothers and sisters in the faith. More importantly, Y’shua/Jesus is Jewish, God the Father is Hebraic, this is all about Him. What we do or do not on behalf of the Jews, we do or do not unto our Savior/Redeemer, Y’shua HaMasiach. All glory, honor and praise belong to the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob, and the God of all true believers everywhere. We stand with Israel and the Jewish people. May the Father’s sovereign will be done.

Not their own, not their children’s and not their enemies. You are the giver of life but they seek to destroy your people and your church and we know the author of lord is behind it.

Genesis 12:13
I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Father,
Bring conviction to the Church that we are grafted into the vine. We are not a replacement for Israel. May we remember that if the church doesn’t bless Israel and our nation doesn’t bless Israel there are grave consequences.
Let the fear of You come upon the mainstream media and bring conviction so that they begin to report accurately about the horrors that have been perpetrated.
And may those residing in Gaza realize that Hamas cares nothing for them and simply uses them as a shield in their desire to annihilate the people of Israel.
May Yeshua reveal Himself to Israel and Gaza and undo every demonic plot and plan of the enemy by bringing many to salvation.
In the Holy Name of Jesus. Amen.

To me, it is more important to trust the good report of the Lord. than to trust the lies of the liberal media. The media is so corrupt, and cannot be trusted. It is far better to trust in Him, rather than man-made, man-centered, fickle, subject -to-change reports of the media. They have their own agenda. when we trust the Lord, we are trusting in the Way, the Truth, and the Life!

I have to disagree that Jews are not positively incline with regard to the support that Christians show towards Israel. There is an entire organization that has many Jews – CUFI – Christians United for Israel.
The ‘challenge’ is and has long been LEFTIST Jews.
Oct 7 shook some of them out of their stupidity, thinking that the left is where they find their ‘safe space’, but not all of them.

Lord God I praise your holy name, and I come before your thrown in humility yet boldly asking for the protection only you can give your people. I pray you instill in the hearts of all Christians a craving to stand and pray for the peace of Israel. Lord make a way where there seems to be no way, softening the hearts of the people of Israel, and bringing revival to them. Lord, as you have adopted me into your family, I feel a part of the Jewish nation, they are my family and I urgently ask for your Blessings to be upon them, bringing them to your Son, Jesus. In the name of our Blessed Holy Savior Jesus.

Dear Lord, help us to STAND and SPEAK and PRAY. Drive out our complacency. This is so big. It is such a sin to look the other way. Deliver Israel, dear Lord, and let us be a part of it for Your glory!

Father if the devil was able to gain entrance into Israel for the heinous sneak attack due to spiritual sin and compromise of the nation against You and Your Law, we pray for an outpouring of your conviction and help to bring individual citizens, synagogs, families, and the nation of Isreal to individual and national repentanceand revival to close all spiritual breeches and restore spiritual security, in Jesus name we ask knowing ypu hear us and knowing we have what we ask. Thank you.

Psalm 125:
“1 Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever.
2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds His people both now and forevermore.”
Father, thank you that Your word is truth and our anchor. Your word never returns to void and Your never fails. You are our faithful refuge and shield. Your Holy Name be praised! Thank You also for Your mercy, peace and love lavished on us in abundance.

#Caliphate advancement- done per mayhem and chaos on Oct. 7th.
* Read up on the #Caliphate.
God gives free will, evil loves it.
Egregious when someone posts a lengthy lecture on Israel’s “sin of abortion” inferring etiology of Hamas Oct. 7th attack.
ALL sin.
The cowering America church hiding under their beds- has no room to judge Israel.
How much more does America deserve a massive Hamas attack based on OUR “sin of abortion”?!
We have far higher numbers than Israel; and far more egregious laws and practices!
Stinking judgemental thinking!
These were innocent babies and children. God did not cause, or order up Oct. 7th.
God is perfectly able to convict Israeli’s hearts!
He doesn’t need a dissertation- which by the way, probably bold capped God’s name as a slight to Jewish believers!
Israel needs our prayers, support, and comfort right now- as do the Christians in Gaza shunned by all!

“The threat level has gone to a whole another level since October 7 [the invasion of Israel by Hamas].” It is very important during this season that we are alert to Holy Spirit’s warnings, and diligent to cover our families, friends, and leaders with prayer. “Let’s be diligent in listening to Holy Spirit’s warnings during this time of danger. Also, declare Psalm 91 over your family daily. Build walls of protection around them, declaring: “No evil will befall my family; no plague will come near their dwelling!” Ask for angels to surround and protect them (Psalm 91:9-10).Psalm 91 has become my bed time prayer, it holds promises and prayers not to be ignored. God as I read Joshua and all of the borders being divided, this was the inheritance of the tribes of Israel. V. 49 says “When they had finished dividing the land for inheritance by their boundaries, the Israelites gave an inheritance among them to Joshua son of Nun. When they cast lots before God. Thank you Father that the words in Joshua were very clear to whom owned these towns they were for the Israelites. God I know you warned them about doing all that was written in the book of Moses. God I see a likeness in that scripture to our Constitution, there are warnings in the Constitution that this government that is in the WH has not obeyed one they do as they please. Father God I see where a group has gotten a hold of greed and will not let go! I see a dark path they follow and the mockery they spin on Christians . God warned the Israelites that if they mixed with remnant of the nations that were sinning and He strongly disapproved because of their sin it would be a trap to them. Father I see this so clearly as it is written. We must keep our focus on God and His words not man. “Father, thank You for the availability of the Psalm 91 secret place of safety and protection. Your name, Your authority, is a strong tower; we run into it and are safe. (Proverbs 18:10) We can build walls – boundaries of protection – around ourselves and loved ones as we declare Your word and place our faith in Your protective covering.” God as we lift up prayers to Heaven we declare boldly that no evil will successfully harm us or our families; no violence will penetrate Your covering. You will hide us from every attempt to do so. Angels encamp about us and keep us safe in all of our ways. You are a shield around us, and nothing will penetrate this shield. Alert us, Holy Spirit, to any strategic or critical time we need to pray for someone we know. We will be alert for Your guidance and respond appropriately.” God we need many to come forward to speak up not be silent. “The false doctrine of replacement theology must cease to exist. God I see Ministers, I see teens, I see college kids, I see business men and women that are following a form of the Antichrist movement, they do not have a clue what that Evilness Spirit has taken over their minds, their lives how sad all of the teachings have stolen a failed belief of falsehood. Prayer must come from not a few individuals, Intercessor’s, some Pastors, Evangelist, if we are going to win this battle. Holy Spirit we need you in this place to direct those who are lost and do not have a mind for Gods love until all is cleansed from the clutched of Satan. God – We pray for our nation and leaders. Thank You for the word You gave us to paint our borders and stake our nation to its covenant with You. We have done so. We know that there is shaking coming, but we also know that there is protection, even as the shaking occurs. Keep our nation during this time. We pray, especially, for key leaders that You have raised up during this time in our history. Please protect them from all evil. The people can no longer ignore that the Jesus we serve was a Jew.. Father God remove this spirit of jealousy that Satan has pushed for years he has been so ate up spreading lies, it’s time to make a stand. God has won, not God is winning -He has WON- But this does not relieve us of our Job as prayer Warriors, prayer is our bread. In Jesus name I give Thanks and Your will be done.

Am I wrong? Approximately 98 percent of the nation of Israel absolutely hates Jesus Christ and totally reject Him as the true Messiah? They embrace the evil Talmid (Babylonian) and therefore bring the wrath of God down on them? Their rejection of. Jesus Christ as their Messiah is the bigger problem. A veil has been put over their hearts that leaves them in spiritual darkness and until it is lifted they will not believe. How few American protestant Christians are aware of this. We must provoke them to jealousy by convincing them that Yeshoua is the Messiah.

    Larry, we understand your frustration. The Holy Spirit reveals to anyone who consistently reads their Bible the reality of the spiritual depravity in Israel (as in America). As of a year or so ago, author Joel Rosenberg estimated that Salvations by Grace in Israel had increased up to 250,000, quite a bit more than even five years ago. Revelation reveals that, at the end of the Tribulation, that 1/3 of the Jews will be Saved.

    These numbers can be discouraging; however, as we grow Biblically, the Holy Spirit develops His love for Israel within our own hearts so we persevere in praying for the peace of Jerusalem expanded to all Israeli hearts. Your frustration is understandable but try to see the Jews as you perceive the unsaved within your own family and continue to pray for individual Salvations.

    Heavenly Father, 

    We trust Your Divine Will, knowing that, as with all governments, Israel’s civic leadership and government rest upon Your Son’s shoulders. We know Israelis are living in darkness so ask that Jesus reveals Himself to each individual soul, that not one of Your little lambs are lost. Soften their millions of hearts, crumble down their walls of false reasoning and false thinking, open their eyes and give them ears to hear Your Son’s Word so He Saves them by His Grace and Biblically disciples them.

    In Jesus’ Name we pray. Amen.

      It is not difficult to understand Jewish people’s resistance to Christian teachings when we recall how much they suffered at the hands of the Crusaders, and then again at the hands of the Gestapo when Christians in Germany were silent as millions of Jewish people adults and children were put to death. Our Father in Heaven, please help us to reveal the true character of your beautiful Son, The Lord Jesus Christ, to your beloved Jewish brethren. We are so very sorry, Lord GOD, for all the suffering that has been brought upon them. Help us to bring relief to the Jewish people in any way we can. In Jesus Name, and for Thy Name’s sake. Amen.

Heavenly Father, You are ALMIGHTY AND WORTHY OF ALL PRAISE. I pray that Your precious Israel will be honored and protected. I pray their leadership and military will be overcome by Holy Spirit and will follow Your guidance in this war. We ask for miracles, signs and wonders to come upon millions of the Jews and Muslims so they will see You Jesus and commit their lives to You. I pray the people who are blinded from truth will have their eyes opened . Please end this war quickly and bring peace and REVIVAL to Israel, Gaza, and the Middle East. In Jesus name Amen

I truly enjoyed this article!! I was saddened to see that jews don’t have a high opinion of Christians. My church doesn’t speak out about Israel period. The American church is sadly just like the German church during the holocaust.

    I am studying & reading “Letter to the American Church” by Eric Metaxas. Grass roots Christians must take it upon themselves to be informed. Only 3000 of the 18,000 churches in Germany stood against Hitler in WWII. I want to study this book in a small group at my church. A prayer: Father, the time is now. We are already comfortably entrenched in our complacency! Shake us out of it. It is not the pastor’s job. He already has too much to do. Help us as individual believers to wake up the Christians who our life touches. Holy Spirit, bring conviction on your church. In Jesus name I pray this. Amen.”
