Weekly Watch Focus: Israel and United Arab Emirates' Historic Peace Accord

Friday, August 21, 2020—Last week in one of the most significant events in our lifetime, Israel and United Arab Emirates struck a historic peace agreement. The U.S. brokered deal opened diplomatic and economic relations between Israel and UAE that promises to shape the course of the Middle East much in the way the historic 1979 agreement between Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat of Egypt did. Israeli leaders have extended thanks to the U.S. for its role in being the main broker for this accord. Give thanks to the Lord for the victory for Israel and the Middle East. Thank the Lord for the leadership role that President Trump and his administration played in facilitating this important and prophetic event. Genesis 12:3 promises a blessing for those who bless Israel. As we thank the Lord for this miracle, pray for the blessing of the Lord to come on President Trump and on the United States as we have led the way in blessing Israel. Pray for the continued peace of Jerusalem and the nation of Israel. Pray that the Arab nations that embrace diplomatic ties with Israel will be blessed and bring peace and prosperity to the region.

Part 2: Wildfires in CA

A brutal heatwave coupled with intense lightning storms has sparked more the 300 fires in the Bay Area, Central and Northern California. More than 22,000 people have been evacuated and tens of thousands of acres are in flames. 10,800 lightning strikes in just 72 hours have stretched fire crews to their limits. Pray for the thousands of the families who are displaced and at risk of losing their homes and businesses. Stand in the gap and plead the blood of Jesus over California. Pray a hedge of protection for the people of California and bind back death and destruction.

The threshing floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil. I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten.”

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.
