Weekly Watch Focus: A Star Over the Holy Land

FRIDAY, Dec. 13, 2013, All over the world, people’s eyes and hearts are turning toward Christmas as we recall the star that shone over the Holy Land, leading the wise men to worship the Lamb born in Bethlehem, Jesus, our Emanuel. Let us take pause from all our endeavors to turn our hearts toward celebration, worship, and thanksgiving and welcome the Advent season with joy. Pray for Israel and its neighbors, many of whom are going through great turmoil. Pray that the voices that promise destruction for Israel will be defeated, and the Shalom of God would reign over the Holy Land. At this time where family and friends get together, pray for the safety of those who will be travelling. Also, pray specifically for members of our armed forces serving far from home. We cover them and their families, asking for the Lord to give each of them a special touch this Christmas.

Matt 2:1-2, “Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, 2 saying, ‘Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.’”

Num. 24:17, “I see Him, but not now; I behold Him, but not near; a Star shall come out of Jacob; a Scepter shall rise out of Israel, and batter the brow of Moab, and destroy all the sons of tumult.”

Mic. 5:2, “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be Ruler in Israel, whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting.”

Is. 7:14, “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.”

Ps. 91:11, “For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.”

We remember fellow believers who are oppressed and tortured for Christ’s sake. In communist China, Afghanistan, India, Nigeria, and other parts of the word, violent radicals or oppressive communism continue to persecute and even murder Christians.
We thank God and pray for our law enforcement. We ask the Lord for their safety and guidance as the carry out their duties with integrity.
As our children return to school, we cover them in prayer. Whether they attend public school, private school, home school, or college, we pray a special anointing over them.
There is a declaration of war in our culture against the identity of our children. Our foundational values and the preservation of identity for individuals and families through Christ as the building block of society is under attack.
Pray for financial recovery from what many economists are calling a recession. We humbly pray for a healthy economy and that integrity would be restored in leadership.
