05-05-2024 Prayer For Israel’s Government
1 Samuel 2:7-10; Zechariah 4:6; Genesis 12:3; Ps 83:1-5: Ps 75:7; Joel 3:1; Zech. 2:8;

Isaiah 14:24, 27; 43:13; 46:9-11;RSV

You, O LORD of hosts have SWORN: ‘As I have planned, so shall it be, and as I have purposed, so shall it stand…’ For You, the LORD of hosts have purposed, and who will annul it? Your hand is stretched out, and who will turn it back? For You are G-d, and also henceforth are You He; there is none who can deliver from Your hand; YOU WORK AND WHO CAN HINDER IT? For You are G-d, and there is no other; You are G-d, and there is none like You, declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, ‘MY COUNSEL SHALL STAND, and I WILL ACCOMPLISH ALL MY PURPOSE… I have spoken, and I will bring it to pass; I have purposed, and I WILL DO IT.’”

Daniel 2:21-22

“Abba in heaven, Almighty Holy One of Israel, You change times and seasons; You remove kings and sets up kings; You give wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding; You reveal deep and hidden things; You know what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with You.

Ro 13:1, 4; Jn 19:11;

Oh Lord, there is no authority except from You. Let the present ruling authority in Israel have been set up by you and not by plotting and scheming men. Therefore, let this government of Prime Minister Netanyahu, given to us by You. together with those joined to him as Your servants, work with their fellow servants for the good of all of Israel’s citizens. Ultimate justice and vengeance belongs to You alone, but governments carry out earthly justice upon the wrong doer.”

“For it is you who lifts up and puts down (Ps 75:7), Who removes leaders and sets up leaders (Da 2:21). May it be You Who did set up this present government, and not the wheeling-dealing parties. May it have been You Who installed the ministers governing Israel, in particular now the military committee especially working together in Israel’s war with Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Yihad and the Houties. The nation of Iran is behind all of them, financing, supporting and training their terrorists. Let Israel’s government not sow to the wind and reap the whirlwind (Hos. 8:4, 7).”

We thank You, Father in heaven, for having been a shield of protection round about Israel, for Your angels stationed at Israel’s cities, towns, settlements and borders; for Israel’s Air Force jets ready 24/7. Thank You for the US, the UK, France, Jordan and Saudi Arabia helping to destroy the hundreds of drones, rockets and cruise missiles, whether for Israel’s sake or for their own country, with minimum damage done and no loss of life. May Israel’s citizens realize that this was Your doing and give You thanks and praise.”

O Lord GOD Almighty, watch over Your troubled, storm-tossed, oppressed nation as over the apple of the eye. May all ministries work together in one accord for the welfare of the nation, men and women of integrity, skilled in what is best and profitable for Your nation: stable, solid, leading Your nation with uprightness, in faithfulness, righteousness and justice, in peace and prosperity. And let the enemies of this government have their foot caught in their on net of schemes, and fall into the very hole they have tried to dig for this government, for we are only strong when united, as Am Echad, Your people. Above all, LORD, stand with our people, fight with the IDF, give the decision making ministers insight, wisdom, knowledge and understanding how to overcome and utterly undo Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Yihad, and that principality over Iran, the prince of Persia, who uses Iran to overthrow and destroy Israel.”

However, Almighty and wise God, you speak in Isaiah 19:25 of Assyria being the work of Your hands. Former Assyria was located in Mesopotamia, which corresponds to most parts of modern-day Iraq as well as parts of Iran, Kuwait, Syria, and Turkey, all of whom support Hamas and Hezbollah against Israel. O Adonai, work Your mighty miracles! Overturn the followers of that prince of Persia. And may those nations, after the WW III written about in the Book of Revelation, bow to You and call You their God, and You will say to them, ‘You are the work of my hands.’“

Be blessed, oh our God, for ever and ever, for to you belongs wisdom and might. Grant wisdom to PM Netanyahu how to wage this war, rescue all of the hostages we beg You, and encourage and comfort the people with knowledge and understanding, looking to You for help, guidance and counsel. Direct the government’s decision making like you direct the water courses (Pr 21:1, 3), especially that of the Defense Ministry, Foreign Ministry, Interior Ministry, and all of the other ministries. May they make the right choices according to your appointed times and seasons (Eccl 3:1), each heading their ministry skillfully and with righteousness and justice, insight and understanding.”

Remember, Abba in heaven, your promise that You will rejoice in doing Your people, Your nation, good with all your heart and all Your soul, that you will bring upon them all the good that You have promised them (Jer. 32:41-42). Be mindful of your plans for Israel, plans for welfare and not for evil – like the horrific evil of a mini-shoah on Oct. 7th – , to give your nation a future and a hope (Jer. 29:11).”

“Remember also, that You said You will not deal with Your people as You did formerly, with punishment for transgression, but let there be a sowing of peace between the men and women whom You raised up to form the present government (Zech. 8:11, 12). Let not the curses of the Law come upon your nation for all of our backslidings, sins, abominations and apostasies, but purpose now to do good to Your nation (Zech. 8:15). Moreover, act according to Your oath which You swore, that as the waters of Noah shall no more go over the earth, so have You sworn that You will not be angry with Your people nor rebuke them. For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed but your steadfast love shall not depart from Israel nor your covenant of peace be removed from your people because You have compassion on them now (Isa. 54:9-10).”

Almighty LORD and God, we ask that not to us but to Your Name You give glory with hearing, granting and answering our prayers, for Your holy Name’s sake (Ezek. 36:22), and for the sake of your steadfast love and faithfulness. For why should the nations say, ‘Where is their God? (Ps 115:1-2) He has rejected them.’ (Jer. 33:24-26). Rather, glorify Your holy Name by sub-doing Israel’s enemies who are Your enemies, and cause Your nation to go forth victoriously, lifting up Your Name in the sight of all the nations with praise and thanksgiving, rejoicing and glorying in You, their God.”

“We thank You, Father in heaven, for glorifying Your Name in the sight of all of Israel’s neighbors, by helping Jacob according to Your promise, strengthening and upholding him with Your victorious right hand (Isa. 41:8-10, 13, 14), by a government which will do Your will for Your nation, healing and helping them, keeping them safe from the synagogue of Satan and from those who seek their own interests but not the welfare of Your people.”

Betroth Your people to You in righteousness and justice, in steadfast love and in mercy and faithfulness (Hos 2:19-20), healing them and us from all of their and our backslidings (Hos. 14:4; Jer. 3:22) and say to Your nation which is without a shepherd, ‘You are My people, the sheep of My pasture, and I am Your God,’ (Ezek. 34:30-31), that they and their leaders may return to You with all their heart and soul and say, ‘You are our God.’”

“Amen and Amen in the mighty and glorious Name of Yeshua the Messiah, Savior and King of Israel and of the world.”
