Praying for Israel: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - July 20

"Pray for the peace of Jerusalem", the psalmist exhorts us in one of the very specific prayer commands in Scripture. And Jerusalem certainly needs our prayers, as does all of Israel - a nation created for God's glory, dispersed throughout the world for centuries, and now regathered in their ancient land. Everyone, it seems, wants a piece of Israel for their own purposes whether political or theological.

Today, as we pray for Israel let's certainly pray for the political conflict, but let's raise our eyes beyond the end-times theological questions but instead, let's pray for Israel to know true peace through their Messiah. Please read pages 477-481, and then watch this video and join me in prayer today.
