O, my Father, I pray:
For the Holy Spirit to convict all the people of the city about sin, righteousness, and the judgment to come (John 16:8) so that they can find truth and forgiveness in Yeshua – for people of all walks of life to find real peace with God through Yeshua.
Against violence, and for peace and hope on the streets of Jerusalem, and against fear – that more and more would come to trust in You and find peace and love that casts out fear.
For integrity in the governmental institutions and for those in positions of responsibility to walk in righteousness – for God to root out corruption.
For You to raise up those who can be a witness in these high levels of Israeli society – people like the prophets Daniel and Ezekiel
For our leaders – for the right people to be given the right positions, and for God’s wisdom which leads to peace and justice for all.
For the Jewish and Arab believers in Jerusalem to truly love one another, and to love their enemies as well.
For the destructive plans of the enemy to be thwarted, and for God’s perfect plans to come to pass both now and unto the end, because I pray in the strong and mighty hand of the Lion of Judah, Jesus, my LORD. Amen.
Verse for Today: 8 When he comes, the Holy Spirit will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment: 9 about sin, because people do not believe in me; 10 about righteousness, because I am going to the Father. (John 16:8-10)
