A Prayer for Israel

Heavenly Father,
The psalmist tells us to “pray for the peace of Jerusalem.”
So I pray for peace for Your chosen people, Israel, and their beloved city
today. You have planned for Israel, provided for Israel, and protected Israel for
thousands of years.
But as in days of old, there are those today who seek to harm, even destroy,
Your people.
So I ask you to keep Israel in Your loving care. Put a spiritual hedge of
protection around Your people and their land.
Watch over this nation as a Good Shepherd watches over His flock, and may
Your chosen people find their ultimate safety and security in You.
While You watch over Your people, may Your Spirit awaken in them a hunger
to embrace their Messiah—the One who died for them—until they see Him
face to face.
We pray this in His name,
Psalm 122:6
