ONE WITH ISRAEL PRAYER REQUEST

PLEASE READ THIS OPEN LETTER FROM “ONE WITH ISRAEL” AND WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW ENTITLED “ISRAEL IS WHAT’S RIGHT WITH THE MIDDLE EAST”

Dear Friends,

Throughout history, Israel has been in a constant struggle for its right to exist. As the only true democracy in the Middle East, Israel has become the lone refuge for those who wish to live in peace. Despite multiple attacks, Israel has held fast with the support of its friends and allies who are a true blessing. In September we will face another major challenge to Israel’s legitimacy as the Palestinian Authority will seek a unilateral declaration in the United Nations where unfortunately they find an almost automatic majority of support. These actions are designed to impose upon Israel a Palestinian plan that will essentially strive to bring Israel back to the 1967 borders and to further isolate Israel within the international community by delegitimizing our nation. Therefore, we seek Greater help in this difficult time. As the Palestinians and the Arab world, most of whom refuse to recognize Israel as a Jewish state, initiate their plan in September, we will hold a simultaneous event in the churches and synagogues of the southwest United States. We ask you to join in this effort to demonstrate the support of the Jewish and Christian community for Israel. This event is titled: “One with Israel”.

I ask you to see this letter as my personal appeal for you to lead your community in prayer for lasting peace and stability in Israel on Sunday, September 25th. What this entails is for you to dedicate 10-15 minutes on that day to speak to your congregation (or prayer group) about the difficult and urgent situation Israel is facing and ask them to uphold and support Israel both in prayer and practical ways.  As true friends of Israel, we count on your support in this effort.

Sincerely yours, Ambassador Meir Shlomo
Consul General of Israel to the Southwest

(I realize it’s too late to organize this in your churches , but please pray on that day with others in your groups for these important issues) and also please run this Powerpoint show and feel free to copy it:

NOW PLEASE WATCH THIS BRIEF BUT POIGNANT VIDEO. CLICK ON THIS:
ISRAEL IS WHAT’S RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE EAST

“Pray without ceasing!” 1Thess 5:17
“The earnest prayer of a righteous man has great power and wonderful results.” James 5:17b 
We are called to pray; and we say, pray for what?
PEACE:  
  “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem” Psalm 122:6
   “He makes peace in your borders.”(Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, and Jordan).Psalm 147:14

PROTECTION:  For soldiers and civilians in these countries, protection of their infrastructures.

WILL: For God’s will to be done in the situation.

WISDOM:  For leaders of the nation of Israel, in the Armed Forces, Civil defense, Intelligence, Parliament, to have the wisdom of God.
“The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord.” Proverbs 21:1

If today’s news was written in biblical terms, Benjamin Netanyahu would be called the King of Israel. Yes, there is a Parliament, Cabinet, as in a democratic society, but he is the man the world sees and recognizes as Israel’s leader. He is the one that must confront  the enemy on the political world stage, and appease the nations of the world, and convince that he is taking the appropriate action. PRAY FOR THIS MAN.

The Christians who believe that Israel is God’s land; and are willing to pray, are the  greatest support that Israel has, and Netanyahu has acknowledged this in his speeches. We cannot let them down.

“For Zion’s sake I will not hold My peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake, I will not rest, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a lamp that burns. vs.6: I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem: they shall never hold their peace day or night. You who make mention of the LORD, do not keep silent, vs.7: And give Him no rest till he establishes and till He makes  Jerusalem a praise in the earth.”
