Israel's 63rd Independence Day
Why Pray For Israel?
1. Israel is still the apple of God's eye and His inheritance, close to His heart.
2. God's faithful servants are moved to prayer and compassion over Israel's condition.
3. God commands us to give Him and ourselves no rest until He establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth.
4. God wants to give us the desire, anguish and gift of travailing prayer for Israel's salvation.
Rom.9:2-3; 10:1, 14
5. God commands us to seek the spiritual and physical good of the Israeli people and to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
6. The Jewish people's acceptance of Messiah Jesus (Yeshua) will lead to life from the dead — world-wide revival of unprecedented magnitude.
7. Yeshua linked His second coming to Israel's national turning to Him.
