  1. Because the re-establishment of the nation of Israel in the Land is a sign of God’s faithfulness. It’s hard to believe that modern Israel was re-established such a short time ago, but it is a signpost of God’s faithfulness to His covenants and promises. The survival of the Jewish people and their return to the Promised Land of Israel is a clear testimony that God keeps the promises of His Word.How much more, then, can we trust Him to honor His promise in Genesis 12:3 to bless those who bless Israel?
  2. Pray because Israel is our best ally in the Middle East. The United States and Israel share a long history — with the U.S. being one of the first to recognize Israel in 1948.Since Israel’s founding as a nation, she has been supported by the U.S. military and also by our presidents — and the Jewish people have proven to be loyal allies and valuable friends in the Middle East. Our prayers for Israel keep this alliance strong.
  3. Pray because of the many Jewish people who are coming to the Messiah! By God’s grace — and thanks to the prayers and generosity of friends like you — Israelis and other Jewish people across the globe are open to the Gospel, Hebrew-speaking congregations are growing, and many younger Israelis are coming to faith in Jesus the Messiah!Two years ago, when Chosen People Ministries first began seeing this growth, I said that I hadn’t seen such vitality of the Good News in my 40+ years of ministry. Yet the growth continues to exceed my expectations today!Our God is great, ever-faithful to His people — and I know He delights to hear and answer our prayers for Israel to discover the Messiah she has waited for!
  1. Pray because the Jewish people gave the world the Bible and the Messiah! The Good News came out of Israel — and it is our joy and privilege to pray that they, too, will receive it. And not only to pray, but to actively share this loving and transformational message of the Messiah with Jewish seekers — person-to-person, heart-to-heart.
  2. Pray because Psalm 122:6 actually commands us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. This Psalm — attributed to King David — instructs the people of God: “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: ‘May they prosper who love you.’”And it’s interesting to note: the very name Jerusalem includes this hope for peace.The last part of Jerusalem, “salem,” comes from the Hebrew word “shalom,” which means peace, wholeness and completeness.When we pray for the peace of Jerusalem we are praying for the cessation of temporal hostilities — such as terror and missile attacks, and the enmity that exists between Israelis and Palestinians. But most of all, we are praying for the eternal peace that will come with the return of the Messiah.

And there is a blessing — “may they prosper who love you” — attached to this call to prayer that hearkens back to the Abrahamic Covenant outlined in Genesis 12:3:

“I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”

It is remarkable that the promise in Psalm 122:6 is for those who “love Jerusalem,” and therefore we understand that the these prayers are motivated by love for God’s holy city.

The root of the Hebrew term used for “prosper” is shalah, which can be translated as to “put at ease” or to “quiet.” The prosperity described is therefore not a material blessing, but a quality of soul and life. This enables those who love Jerusalem to enjoy personally a similar peace as is enjoyed by God’s chosen city.

Those who bless Israel are participating in the unfolding of God’s promises to the Jewish people — and praying for the peace of Jerusalem is one of the most important ways you and I can do this. When we do, we will receive what money can never buy — His presence in our lives, which is the very source of both shalom and shalah!

Thank you for praying for the peace of Jerusalem — for the Prince of Peace to reign in the hearts of individuals in the Land of Israel and across the globe — and for God’s chosen people to experience the abundant life that the Messiah promised so many years ago (John 10:10).

Please also remember to pray for the work of Chosen People Ministries in Israel.

Thank you in advance for your prayer and partnership. I pray that the Lord will fill your heart with thanksgiving and joy!

Zechariah 12:2-3
“Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah. It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it.

Joel 2:28-29
“It will come about after this
That I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind;
And your sons and daughters will prophesy,
Your old men will dream dreams,
Your young men will see visions.
“Even on the male and female servants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days.

Romans 9:3-4
For I could wish that I myself were accursed, separated from Christ for the sake of my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh, who are Israelites, to whom belongs the adoption as sons, and the glory and the covenants and the giving of the Law and the temple service and the promises,

“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! See! Your house is left to you desolate; for I say to you, you shall see Me no more till you say, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!’(Barucha haba b’shem Adonai). (Matt. 23: 37-39)

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. As unusual as it sounds, that phrase in both modern and ancient Hebrew means “Welcome!”. If you come and visit us in Israel at our home in Jerusalem, we’re going to say to you as you come to our door: “Baruch Haba!”

“For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. For they, being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God.” (Romans 10:2-3)

“You who make mention of the LORD, do not keep silent, and give Him no rest till He establishes and till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.” (Isaiah 62:6-7)
