Israel has many enemies
God in Heaven, fight the battle for Israel as you have done in the past. May the fear of the Lord fall on Hamas, and Hezbollah, on Lebanon and Syria and Iran, on every enemy of Israel. Would you make them weak and fearful and confused, fighting among
themselves and incapable. Tie their hands and bind their feet, send chaos among them, and give them what judgment they deserve.
This is what the Lord says:
“For three sins of Gaza,
even for four, I will not relent.
Because she took captive whole communities
and sold them to Edom,
I will send fire on the walls of Gaza
that will consume her fortresses.
Although the peoples roar like the roar of surging waters,
when he rebukes them they flee far away,
driven before the wind like chaff on the hills,
like tumbleweed before a gale.
In the evening, sudden terror!
Before the morning, they are gone!
This is the portion of those who loot us,
the lot of those who plunder us.
Pray for innocent Palestinians
Lord Jesus, we pray for those who are innocent and caught in the Gaza Strip. We pray that you would provide a way of escape for them, that you would provide the food and water and shelter and protection they need, and that you would provide a better life of freedom for them. We pray that your Gospel would spread, and that many would come to faith in Jesus Christ.
Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written:
“It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. On the contrary:
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
When each group is ready, we will gather together again for our final prayer time as a group
