pray

This page offers prayer points and some prayers themselves as suggested guidance as the Holy Spirit leads you to pray according to the Word of God and His will.

 Psalm 103 A Psalm of David.  Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s. The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed. He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel. The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever. He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him. For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust. As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more. But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children’s children; To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them. The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all. Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word. Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure. Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.

A Prayer for Israel

 “Mercy. Dear God, have mercy. These are Your people, rebellious, stiff-necked, prideful, idolatrous–all the things You state again and again in the Bible. Will they never learn to seek Your face? You know them! You know their hearts, how they continually run from You instead of toward You! Have mercy on your chosen people dear Lord. And those who have been filled with deadly, poisonous lies against them, Lord, have mercy on them as well. May they all have dreams and visions of You–Jesus, Son of the loving, heavenly Father. Bring them all to Your place of salvation.

And Lord, protect all  who call you their Lord and Savior, their Messiah. Hide them under the shadow of your wings and give your angels charge over each one. Use each individual who calls on Your Name for your glory. Fight for them and bring every wicked plan of the enemy to naught. We know that dark, spiritual forces are at work promoting hatred toward the Jewish people and even hatred among Jewish brethren.

Only with divine wisdom can man fight against the powers and principalities at work in this war with terrorists. Lord, send Your Armies to fight. Divinely protect the innocent, the poor, the lame–those whom You sent Your Son to die for. Jesus prayed that not one You had given him would be lost. Lord, protect and shield even their minds and hearts from any hatred or resentment that would plant seeds in these hurting souls. Give the leadership wisdom and discernment to counter wicked schemes. Lord, we pray  for You to intervene in the government, in business and in entreprenuership and get glory from Your victory inspite of impossible situations. We do pray for Your will to be done–in the nation of Israel, in the land, in hearts of Jew and Palestinian alike. Put them in fear oh God, that these nations, and all those watching or involved, may know themselves to be but men. You alone are God. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob–You have protected Israel many times in the past, even in their rebellion, by your mighty right arm. Your intent is for peace. Your intent is that all might be saved. Have mercy, oh God.

Lord, let Righteousness and Justice begin to arise in this nation–in this land. Every man who stands against Your will, move them out of Your way. That the purposes of God might be fulfilled in this day that we live in. Strengthen the hearts of believers, especially those in the battle and their families and friends praying for them. Strengthen the army of prayer warriors that you have been raising up and preparing for the days ahead. Lord, cause them to rise up even now to join this battle. May they pray for your divine timing for all that is taking place now and as the future unfolds. The enemy cannot force Your hand oh God. You control the times and the seasons and will continue to do so for eternity.

Have mercy on this land of Israel and the people, and send Your rain. Israel and the surrounding nations desperately need rain. The natural drought only begins to show the intense spiritual draught that exists. Send Your rain Lord. And thank you that we can come to your throne of grace by the blood of Jesus to ask for help in time of need. You know our need before we ask. But we cry out in obedience and in faith, trusting that You will supply our need. You will show Your mighty right arm in judgment and mercy. But we continue to cry for mercy. Thank you Lord, for we know You are in control and You are a Faithful and Loving God. Hallelujah!
