Praying for the Salvation of Israel
As we are continuously praying intentionally for Israel and the salvation of Israel we felt led by the Holy Spirit to begin a weekly prayer series, praying city by city for Israel based on the 31 Kings that Israel defeated (Joshua 12) after entering the Promised Land and the modern cities related with those conquered kings. Just as Adonai made it possible for those cities to be physically conquered, we believe that now is the time like never before that there will be an outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the Promised Land. Paul tells us that all Israel will be saved (Romans 11:26), and now that the Gospel of Peace has reached the ends of the earth, salvation is once again entering from whence it came. Each week we will pick a specific city to pray for and give some details of the city to pray with understanding and in order to have a visual of the city as well. Please join us, those around the globe, and in Israel praying in one accord for the salvation of Israel and for all of Israel to be saved.
Is a city in the Galilee region in the North of Israel, often known as the “Capital of the Valley” due to its strategic location in the Jezreel Valley. As of 2019, the city had a population of 54,250. Just a ten minute drive from Afula is Mount Tabor. It is the site of the famous battle between Deborah and Barak against the 900 Chariots of Sisera (Judges 4). It is also the place of Yeshua’s transfiguration (Matthew 17:1-11).
As the history of the city and nearby Tabor remind us, let us pray that those with the faith and authority of Deborah would arise in Afula, and that the people of Afula will see Yeshua just as Peter, James, and John saw Him upon the mountain both with their physical eyes and in their dreams leading them to salvation. Afula has a special place in the heart of Adonai and as we pray, may He give us His heart for the city as well.
Adonai bless you and keep you! To receive these weekly prayer alerts join us on Instagram: @ZonsofZion where we are praying for Israel every day.
