חג פורים סמיח !Happy Purim 2023
Here are some key prayer points, as you intercede for Israel at this time:
Question: Why Does Adonai use the little things to confuse the wise or the unknown to bring to light the known? He uses light to dispel the darkness (Esther and Haman).
The Purim story is about Queen Esther. Before her ascent to power, little is known about her, except that she was an orphan raised by her uncle, Mordechai. The Purim story tells about Esher’s role in saving the Jewish people and her desire to have the story recorded and celebrated through the generations. This story was placed in the Bible and the Purim holiday observance was placed into Jewish Law.
ADONAI will use whoever will say, “Here I am Lord, use me”. Esther never forgot her roots, and she never turned away from God, understanding that the sole purpose of her life, and the sole reason for her rise to power, was to be God’s vessel for salvation. Queen Esther exposed Haman’s genocidal plan, by prayer and fasting!
1. Pray for Israel's government and leaders. Amid growing tensions over the Israeli government’s planned judicial overhaul, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Opposition Leader Yair Lapid were set to meet Monday for what was described as "a routine security briefing" in an official press release. Pray that Israeli leaders will put politics aside and focus on the important matters of government, security and justice for all. “Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” Philippians 2:3-4.
2. Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem. Pray for peace within Israel, there is much conflict between various factions. Mutual hatred and intergroup hatred is high among Arab and Jewish youth. Intergroup hatred exists between Arab, non-religious Jews, and Haredi (ultra-Orthodox). Issac and Ishmael, Jacob and Esau are historical examples. Read on your time Genesis, chapters 27-29.
3. Pray for the IDF soldiers. The Shin Bet, Air, Land Sea, Border Patrol, Special Forces, and the New Dog Patrol, will be protected and safe at all times. Pray to ask Avinu (our Father) Sh'bashamaim (that is in heaven) that He will always watch over His IDF soldiers and protect them from all evil. “For He shall give His angels charge over you (IDF) to keep you in all your ways.” Psalm 91:11. Fear not (IDF) for the LORD your God is with you!
4. Pray for the Holocaust Survivors living in Israel, America, and around the world to come to their Messiah. “Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are continually before me.” Isaiah 49:16. Jewish Survivors of the Holocaust Residing in the United States Estimates & Projections: By 2010, the most elderly survivors (85+) represented 23% of the total Nazi victim cohort in the United States. By 2020, 57% of all survivors will be at least 85 years of age. By 2030, all remaining survivors (projected number: 15,800) will be 85 or older. Pray in the spirit for blind eyes to be open in Yeshua's Name. “Who knows if he has come to the kingdom for such a time as this” Esther 4:14
5. Pray for the salvation of all Jewish people, every tongue, tribe, and culture, from every country the north, south, east, and west that lives on the planet earth (Philip and the Ethiopian Eunuch-Acts 8:26-40). The Eunuch believed in Yeshua and was baptized by Phillip. “And it shall come to pass, that whoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD has said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call”. Joel 2:32.
"And so all Israel will be saved," as it is written: Romans 11:26-27. ADONAI has a plan for His people. “I say then, has GOD cast away HIS people? Certainly not!” Romans 11:1. As it is written, so shall it be! Amen!
6. Pray that ADONAI will open the eyes of the present Administration to bless His people, land, and nation. (Genesis 12:3). Pray that America will not turn away from helping Israel. Pray against political hate against Israel in America. Our Father, our lives are in Your hands! Pray and ask ADONAI to have mercy on America, please have mercy and allow us to pray as the people of Nineveh did when they were facing judgment from the Lord. “The LORD was very angry with your fathers. So tell the people that this is what the LORD of Hosts says: ‘Return to Me, declare the LORD of Hosts and I will return to you, says the LORD of Hosts.’ Do not be like your fathers, to whom the former prophets proclaimed that this is what the LORD of Hosts says: ‘Turn now from your evil ways and deeds.” Zechariah 1:3.
7. Pray for revival in America, household salvation, and healing from the covid virus, stress, anxiety, worry, fear, and lies from the enemy. Pray for the friends of America and Israel to stand strong and not give in or out! “Finally, be strong in the Lord and the strength of his might”. Ephesians 6:10.
8. Pray for all nations, organizations, and people who stand on the wall of Jerusalem praying for the peace of Jerusalem. Pray for Dr. Hadassah, Elihana & Israel Elia from FRONTLINE ISRAEL (RESTORE ISRAEL and NATIONS MINISTRY). Pray for their safety, protection, refreshment and continued anointing power by the Holy Spirit, as they continue to minister in the USA and Israel. In Yeshua's Mighty Name, Amen!
Shalom! Thank you for praying for the peace of Jerusalem, Psalm 122:6.
“Delight yourself also in the LORD and He shall give you the desires of your heart” Psalm 37:4.
Salvation, in Yeshua's Name, for all Israel!
