Israel At A Crossroads: Prayer Points

Despite the growing fears of all out war with Hezbollah, a resurgence of Hamas terrorists in the North of Gaza shows that Hamas has not yet been defeated and still try to establish their authority despite un-replenishable losses. For the first time in one month Hamas has once again fired rockets from Gaza towards Ashckelon, a clear statement that Hamas is not yet defeated.

Genesis 12:3

“And I will bless (do good for, benefit) those who bless you, and I will curse [that is, subject to My wrath and judgment] the one who curses (despises, dishonors, has contempt for) you. And in you all the families (nations) of the earth will be blessed.”

Let us pray that despite this promise of God over Israel that salvation still runs rampant throughout the nations that war against Israel, and that the power and perfect love of God be made evident amidst the chaos.

While Hamas continues to barely hang on as Israel continues its offensive, Hezbollah in Lebanon, the Houthis in Yemen, and Iran have intensified attacks not only against Israel but also American bases and positions throughout the Middle East. A recent attack in Jordan on an American military base has resulted in 3 US soldiers dead and dozens more injured.

We have not yet arrived at Ezekiel 37, the great war that will envelop all of the Middle East and Israel, so let us pray in accordance with Matthew 6:10 over Israel that His kingdom come and will be done on earth as it is in heaven in God’s perfect timing, not in the timing of Satan who is always trying to change the times and the Law (Daniel 7:25).

The Houthi rebels in Yemen have attacked cargo vessels allied with the US and Israel for the past month which has caused the US, Nato countries, and others to deploy their Navies to the region and shoot down hundreds of missiles and drones in the process which have attacked both military and merchant vessels alike. The US and other militaries have responded with airstrikes throughout Yemen to neutralize the threat which has greatly effected shipping lanes in the region.

The government of Yemen controlled by the Iranian regime is playing a very dangerous game in the region that could lead to an all out World War. That is not their intention, but it is a very real possibility with just one wrong move. Please pray for the Iranian government officials as well as those opposed to them for restraint and wisdom with each and every decision they make as each one has the potential to escalate things to a level we have not seen since World War 2.

Iran has struck Pakistan with ballistic missiles after an attack by the Islamic Jihad which seemed to originate from Pakistan. This is another level of possibility for a regional war as Pakistan is not only a nuclear power but has a very capable military. Iran is walking on thin ice to say the least and we must pray that this does not spill over into a much larger war for the sake of Israel which is in the crosshairs of Iran and its proxies. The war in Gaza will look like childs play compared to the possible conflict that is brewing.

More than 100 Iranian Citizens were killed in this recent terrorist attack. The Iranian people expect a strong response from their government, but in doing so they have just retaliated against an ally nation. This puts Israel at even greater threat, knowing that the leadership of Iran is willing to resort to riskier tactics that could lead to greater conflict and force the hand of Israel for greater escalation as well. Please pray that these tensions be handled with the care, finesse, and wisdom so that this war does not grow.

A deal is was nearly brokered between Hamas and the IDF for a ceasefire and the release of the remainder of Israeli hostages still being held captive in Gaza. The deal would have been for a months long ceasefire with Hamas and all hostages released as well as prisoners of Hamas released from Israel. However, rockets now rain down on Tel Aviv from Gaza as Hamas has rejected said deal due to there demands for a permanent ceasefire being rejected by Israel.

Hamas is on its last leg, and is hoping that the political will of the Israeli government will give in to international pressure as well as pressure from the families of the many hostages still be held captive in Gaza. Please pray for the continued resolve of the Israeli government to completely dismantle Hamas who are the ones responsible for the murders carried out on October 7th so that such a scenario will never happen again.

21 IDF soldiers were killed in Han Yunis, Gaza just two days ago, the most killed in the Gaza war in one day. We must continue to pray for our soldier’s safety and protection, and even though the war has surpassed the 100 day mark, we must be praying fervently for the angel armies of God to be with our troops and not to slack in prayer because of the number of days that have gone by. An entire generation of Israeli sons and daughters are on the front lines who need our covering.

The fallen kingdom of darkness wants to eradicate this generation that will become the John 17 generation and bring salvation to whole world. Through this war the younger generation is being targeted like never before, and this war is part of that targeted destruction. Please pray for the protection of this generation that is being targeted just as Moses’ generation and the generation of Yeshua, so that all of those that are to be raised up for this end times harvest will be protected.

Psalm 24:6 “This is the generation (description) of those who diligently seek Him and require Him as their greatest need, Who seek Your face, even [as did] Jacob. Selah.”

Hamas wants nothing more than to stay in power and a regional war would take the pressure off of them if it is allowed to happen. Let us pray that Israel will not back down or let other disputes keep them from the goal of eradicating Hamas, the perpetrators of the massacre of October 7th, and the people that still want more than anything else on this earth to kill every Israeli and every Jew.

Luke 23:34, Yeshua said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” Please pray not only for the salvation of the Jewish people as this war continues, but also for those who blindly hate the Jewish people, for their salvation, as they truly do not know what they are doing. Thank you for you continued prayers and intercession for the Jewish people and the salvation of Israel! Adonai bless you and keep you!
