“This is a land filled with beauty, wonder, and the spirit of God. I’ve been amazed by the glorious and beautiful monuments and holy sites, and the generosity of your incredible people. Because it’s all about the people. I was deeply moved by my visit today to the Western Wall. Words fail to capture the experience. It will leave an impression on me forever. Today, we reaffirmed the unbreakable bond of friendship between Israel and the United States — a friendship built on our shared love of freedom, our shared belief in human dignity, and our shared hope for an Israel at lasting peace. We want Israel to have peace.” (President Donald J. Trump, Remarks to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Jerusalem, Israel, 5/22/17.)
“I will make you a great nation, I will bless you. I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you, I will curse. Through you every family on earth will be blessed.” (Genesis 12:2-3; GWT)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. (Psalm 122:6)
Thank the Lord for the long-time friendship the United States shares with Israel.
Intercede for God’s perfect Will in the Middle East, including protection for Israel in the midst of her many enemies.
Speak words of blessings over Israel and receive blessings from the Lord to America and to your own life, as you are aligning with His Word.
Ask that Israeli Jews would see that Jesus is their long-awaited Messiah.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, the nation of Israel is dear to Your heart. Surely it only exists as a result of the fact that You prophesied it into existence and You have joined the battle to fight on their behalf. You love every individual living in every Middle Eastern country, but this people are Your example through the ages – Your prophetic sign – and You will ensure that they remain blessed and protected in Israel. I pray that Jerusalem shall ever exist in Your love and peace. Thank You that the United States is a friend of Israel. I bless Israel today and pray that the Jews would come to know Jesus (Yeshua) is their beloved, watched-for, Messiah. Reveal Him, Lord. Amen.
I decree that the United States shall remain friends with Israel and Israel shall remain protected under the hand of the Most High, and that Jesus shall be revealed to the Jews as the One True Messiah!
