DAY 18: PRAYER POINTS
» Pray for Leaders – Wisdom, Integrity
¤ The leaders in Israel today have a wonderful legacy from Biblical times; they would be wise to study and to draw from it. Abraham, Moses, Joshua and David were mighty men of God who led Israel to victory and blessing because they “inquired of the Lord,” and they obeyed their God.
» Pray that today’s Israeli leaders would not trust in their military might or in their friendship with the United States, but instead would put their trust in the Lord – The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
» Pray for moral clarity among Israeli leaders.
» Pray for Godly wisdom for Prime Minister Netanyahu and for his administration as they seek to disarm Hamas while helping to rebuild Gaza and repair international public opinion from the Operation Protective Shield Campaign of 2014.
» Pray also that they would know how to handle Iran, Syria, Turkey, Egypt, and other countries with radical Islamic policies.
¤ The “Arab Spring” uprisings not only are toppling dictators, but also are allowing Radical Islamic groups like The Muslim Brotherhood to infiltrate the fragile new governments, potentially breaking established peace treaties and economic trade agreements with Israel.
Between December 2010 and July 2011, there were revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt, a civil war in Libya, violent civil uprisings in Bahrain, Syria, and Yemen, major protests in Algeria, Iraq, Jordan, Morocco, and Oman, as well as protests in Kuwait, Lebanon, Mauritania, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and Western Sahara.
Israel’s leaders need much “Wisdom from Above” to safely navigate the unknown and ever changing waters of the future in the Middle East.
» Pray also for Godly wisdom on their part as they interact with an increasingly unfriendly American administration.
» Pray that “the fear of the Lord” would be upon our President and elected leaders, as well as on those from other democracies in the world.
» Pray that our country would choose to be a “Sheep Nation” (Ezek. 34:17) and stand with Israel in her time of need. Proverbs 3:5-7 and lean not on your own understanding; Other verses: Proverbs 8:12-17 Proverbs 16:10, 23 Proverbs 21:1 Proverbs 28:3-5 Isaiah 9:6-7 Hebrews 13:17
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart
in all your ways acknowledge Him,
and He will make your paths straight.
Do not be wise in your own eyes;
fear the LORD and shun evil.”
and lean not on your own understanding;
