No doubt you've seen the news about the unprecedented attack against Israel by Hamas Islamic terrorists. We all realize how critical our prayers are for Israel, the Jewish people, and the IDF who are going into battle. For many years, Aglow has stood with the people of Israel. They need our prayers and support now, more than ever.
The war in Israel takes a toll on us all; however, when lies are first spoken, it becomes difficult when the truth comes forth because the seed of the lie has been planted first.
This war must be won! First in the heavenlies, then on earth! Father, Israel is the apple of Your eye. Turn the war back at the gates! In Jesus Name, amen!
I encourage you to keep fasting. Keep praying. And keep your eyes upon the Lord who knows all things.
Join me as I declare prayer points from Revive Israel:
- Pray for the salvation of many hearts. God wants to save the people of Israel, the people of Gaza, and everyone. “Who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” – 1 Timothy 2:4
- Pray for comfort. Condolences to the families of the kidnapped, injured, and those who have been killed both in Israel and in Gaza. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” – 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
- Pray for the protection of the soldiers and the innocent civilians in Israel and Gaza. “The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him and delivers them.” – Psalm 34:7
- Pray for the victory of God's Kingdom. Only God can win. There are no sides here, there is the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of Satan. “Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is Yours. Yours is the Kingdom, O Lord, and You are exalted as head above all.” – 2 Chronicles 29:11

A Note and A Prayer
Quite a number of years ago I saw a lion in my spirit as I prayed in Israel. It was the Lion Judah leaping from peak to peak of the mountains surrounding Jerusalem. It was a powerful scene! I could see His strength as He Himself surrounded Jerusalem. I could see His delight and love for the city and His beloved ones who dwelt there. I could see His jealousy for His people and fierceness against anything that would seek to harm His Land or His people. As I’ve prayed for Israel in this time of war, I have thought often of that scene of the Lion of Judah I saw in my spirit. Thank You, Lord, that You Yourself are surrounding Jerusalem and all of Israel – that You are passionate about the people of Israel – the Jews, the Arabs, and the internationals. We partner with You as we pray for Israel, as we pray AS Israel at this critical time. “The Lord will march out like a Champion, like a Warrior He will stir up His zeal; with a shout, He will raise the battle cry and will triumph over His enemies” - Isaiah 42:13. “O LORD, the God of our fathers, are You not God in the heavens? And are You not ruler over all the kingdoms of the nations? Power and might are in Your hand so that no one can stand against You” – 2 Chronicles 20:6.
God bless you as you pray,
