Weekly Watch Focus: Bless Israel and Be Blessed

Friday, February 3, 2017—As the Trump administration seriously considers moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, let us set aside time to bless Israel during this fast, remembering God’s wonderful promise to Abraham, “I will bless those who bless thee” (Gen. 12:3). God has also promised to prosper those who love Jerusalem (Ps. 122:6). Let us pray protection and prosperity for the land and people of Israel.

In the last days of the Obama administration, America failed to veto a U.N. sSecurity Council resolution that would result in a divided Jerusalem if it were carried out. Scripture says that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob has given Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish people eternally. Let us repent and prayerfully nullify that U.N. resolution. God will judge those who divide Jerusalem. Let us pray for the peace and wholeness of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Continue to put a prayer shield of protection over Israel and all its citizens. May that shield of protection and peace cover our land also, especially praying ongoing, supernatural protection over President Trump and Vice President Pence, their families, and the Cabinet. Let us include a special prayer covering over newly nominated justice for the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch.

As we pray for Israel, let us pray for restoration of peace for its neighbors such as Syria, Jordan, Iraq, and Iran. May the radical Islamic terror group, ISIS, be destroyed and its roots removed. May the God of Israel arise and His enemies be defeated.
