Prayer for the Nation of Israel

Jerusalem Through Razor Wire
“I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem;
they will never be silent day or night.
You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest,
and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem
and makes her the praise of the earth.”

-Isaiah 62:6-7

Lord of Hosts, we stand in the gap for the nation of Israel: the Jews and Palestinians alike. We cry out for Your justice and peace to be established. We acknowledge that the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God, so we ask that wisdom and discernment to be given to all who are in authority. Lord Jesus, we ask that the governments will line up with Your heart, for the government rests on Your shoulders.

For those caught in the middle, hiding in bunkers or forced to stay in an unsafe area due to terrorist threats, we pray for Your deliverance. We pray for angelic protection for the innocents. We ask that the “Iron Dome” defense system will continue to effectively deter missiles. Father, we ask that You would expose the terrorist plots and plans, and thwart every attempt from terrorists groups to hide weapons in civilian places.

Holy Spirit, we ask that you would open the eyes and hearts of both Jews and Gentiles to the revelation of Yeshua and His gospel of peace. We bless the Jews as they have endured hostility and hatred from all sides. We bless the Palestinians and ask that you would raise up righteous men and women to lead their people into peace and prosperity. Bring comfort to all the men, women, and children who have lost loved ones and are suffering from the recent battles.

In the name of Jesus, we bind the spirit of violence and deception that has robbed the people of hope or a future. We renounce every curse that has been spoken over the land of Israel and its people. We proclaim peace and order over chaos, and that Your Kingdom will be revealed in Israel, as it is in heaven. And we declare, “Lord, establish Jerusalem, Your heavenly city, and make her a praise on the earth.”

We realize that no human, no government, or philosophy will be able to fully deliver or save. Only You, Lord Jesus. In You we trust and look for the blessed hope that will come out of Zion.

In the name of the One enthroned above all principalities and powers, amen.

Sword of the Word, Verses for you to use:

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
 “May those who love you be secure.
May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels.
For the sake of my family and friends,
 I will say, ‘Peace be within you.’
For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
 I will seek your prosperity.”

-Psalm 122:6-90

This is what Isaiah son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem:
“In the last days the mountain of the Lord’s temple
will be established as the highest of the mountains;
it will be exalted above the hills,
 and all nations will stream to it.
Many peoples will come and say, ‘Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
to the temple of the God of Jacob.
 He will teach us his ways,
 so that we may walk in his paths.’
The law will go out from Zion,
 the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
He will judge between the nations
 and will settle disputes for many peoples.
They will beat their swords into plowshares
 and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation will not take up sword against nation,
 nor will they train for war anymore.”

-Isaiah 2:2-4

“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
 because the Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
 He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted
to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion
to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes,
 the oil of joy instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord
for the display of his splendor. They will rebuild the ancient ruins
and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities
that have been devastated for generations.”
-Isaiah 61:1-4
