Pray for America to Do the Right Thing

Pray for America to Do the Right Thing

Although I love Israel, I want you to know this: I also love other nations and America in particular. The Lord gave me a prayer assignment for her many years ago and today it is stronger than it’s ever been. I want America to be blessed. I want her to fulfill God’s plan and purpose. And to do that, she must deal with Israel not according to political opinion but according to the Word of God.

Since those who bless Israel will be blessed, as Americans, one of the greatest things we can do for our nation is to pray for America to bless the nation of Israel.

In what ways should we bless it?

Our government should recognize Jerusalem as its capital, for one thing. God says it’s the capital and the Jews say it’s the capital; we should agree with them. Congress should also continue to provide aid to Israel whenever it’s needed. And our national leaders should refuse to join those who are criticizing Israel and be supportive instead.

As believers, we’re instructed to pray for “kings and for all that are in authority” (1 Timothy 2:2) and one of the things we can pray is for God to turn the hearts of our leaders so they treat Israel with favor and wisdom.

During election years, we also have opportunity to put feet to our prayers. We should consider many different criteria when pondering how we should vote and one of them must be the candidates’ attitude toward Israel. When I have an opportunity to talk to government officials, this is always my first question to them: What are you going to do about Israel?

To be honest, it’s a question we must also ask ourselves, as individual believers.

What are we going to do about Israel?

I believe our answer and our actions need to be prayer.

Go after it! Pray for God’s will to be done concerning Israel. Be confident that your prayers do make a difference.

    Praying daily. Praying Psalm 7:9. That America would be delivered from the wickedness of the wicked and that righteous men and women would be established. Job 12 too.

    Thank you for your leadership!

    HOW DO ISRAELI BELIEVERS BLESS ISRAEL?
    There are many Israelis who are followers of Jesus and the number of believers is growing daily!!!
    This is how Israeli believers pray for Israel:
    1. That the name of Jesus would be glorified throughout the nation.
    2. That the Word of God will spread to both Jews & Arabs.
    3. That the poor holocaust survivors would be cared for with humanitarian aid.
    4. That the local Church would grow and spread the gospel.
    THIS IS HOW ISRAELI BELIEVERS PRAY.

    Thank you so much Rev. Lynn Hammond! Yes, I pray for the hearts of our leaders to change toward Israel, to use Godly wisdom to aide and support Israel instead of their opposition in Jesus’ most powerful name! PRAISE OUR LORD!! Bless you exceedingly! Bless all in Israel now! I also thank God for continuing to bless America!
