Every year Jewish people around the world celebrate three important fall festivals. This year’s observance has just begun and with it, powerful reminders of God’s detailed plan for descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
The roots of Christianity are in Judaism; therefore, Christians have a special love for the Jewish people and the State of Israel. We understand, honor, and consider holy the power of God’s covenant with Israel, both her people and land.
“Because I love Zion, I will not keep still. Because my heart yearns for Jerusalem, I cannot remain silent. I will not stop praying for her until her righteousness shines like the dawn, and her salvation blazes like a burning torch. The nations will see your righteousness. World leaders will be blinded by your glory. And you will be given a new name by the Lord’s own mouth. The Lord will hold you in his hand for all to see—a splendid crown in the hand of God.” (Isaiah 62:1-3, NLT)
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem
We bless Israel, the special land and people God has blessed. Father, we join our prayer declaration to Yours and pray for the peace of Jerusalem, declaring love for that special city and Your ancient people Israel.
