Scripture #1

“Most of all, I’m writing to encourage you to pray with gratitude to God. Pray for all men with all forms of prayers and requests as you intercede with intense passion. And pray for every political leader and representative, so that we would be able to live tranquil, undisturbed lives, as we worship the awe-inspiring God with pure hearts. It is pleasing to our Savior-God to pray for them. He longs for everyone to embrace his life and return to the full knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:1-4

We ask that You they would be blessed and lead well, so Israel’s citizens can live in peace and many will come to salvation. We pray with intense passion that they would lead with hearts that seek the wellness of their people, that they would embrace Christ’s life and come to the full knowledge of the truth.

Scripture #2

“A godly leader who values justice is a great strength and example to the people. But the one who sells his influence for money tears down what is right.” Proverbs 29:4

We pray that Israel’s Government Leaders may be just and give their country stability, that they would be free from corruption. May they seek godly leaders that value justice and show the people that they will not be influenced by money that would tear down what is right in God’s eyes.

Scripture #3

“And if anyone longs to be wise, ask God for wisdom and He will give it! He won’t see your lack of wisdom as an opportunity to scold you over your failures but he will overwhelm your failures with his generous grace.” James 1:5

May Israel’s leaders seek to find God’s wisdom, that they would long to be wise through God’s understanding, and as they follow His lead may the people be overwhelmed by His generous grace.

Scripture #4

“So I kneel humbly in awe before the Father of our Lord Jesus, the Messiah, the perfect Father of every father and child in heaven and on the earth. And I pray that he would unveil within you the unlimited riches of his glory and favor until supernatural strength floods your innermost being with his divine light and explosive power.” Ephesians 3:14-16

May they come to know the Messiah through the Father of our Lord Jesus who is the perfect father of every child in heaven and on the earth. I pray that you would unveil their eyes to the unlimited riches of Christ’s glory and favor through flooding their innermost being with strength from His divine light and power.

Scripture #5

“Then, by constantly using your faith, the life of Christ will be released deep inside you, and the resting place of his love will become the very source and root of your life. Then you will be empowered to discover what every holy one experiences–the great magnitude of the astonishing love of Christ in all its dimensions. How deeply intimate and far-reaching is his love! How enduring and inclusive it is! Endless love beyond measurement that transcends our understanding-this extravagant love pours into you until you are filled to overflowing with the fullness of God!” Ephesians 3:17-19

May they come to believe by faith in Christ their Messiah, that faith would be released so deeply inside them that they find the very source and root of life is found only in His love. May they experience the enormousness of all the lengths and heights of Christ’s love and how intimately far reaching and endless the measurements that He pours out to overflow in them the fullness of God.
