Shabbat Shalom

Praise God, He is above all and King of all. Psalm 24:1 - "The earth is the LORD's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it;"

Give thanks to the King and praise Him. Psalm 24:10 - "Who is He, this King of glory? The LORD Almighty; He is the King of glory."

His love is everlasting. Psalm 118 - "Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; for His steadfast love endures forever!"

Trump To Visit Israel

Next week President Trump will land in Israel following on from his trip to Saudi Arabia. There are many issues to bring to prayer.

There is speculation that he may use this time to announce the move of the US embassy to Jerusalem. He will visit the Western Wall and also meet with PM Netanyahu and President Rivlin.

PRAY that Trump will not be taken in by hospitality offered in Saudi Arabia and see through any lies or distortions. Expose the attitude of Saudi Arabia towards the West.

PRAY that the visit to the Western Wall will show the world this part of the united city of Jerusalem and a holy Jewish place.

PRAY that Trump will understand very clearly that Jerusalem is the capital of the Jewish state and the city of the King of all kings.

PRAY that there will be an announcement on the location of the US embassy and that this will send a strong message that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

PRAY that Trump will see that Israel is not to become two states.

PRAY that the advisors around Trump will give him wise counsel.

PRAY for Vice President Mike Pence to hear God's guiding and wisdom and be bold to follow.


The return or move of Jews from all over the world to Israel is an important matter for prayer. Isaiah 11:11-12: "In that day the Lord will extend His hand yet a second time to recover the remnant that remains of His people...He will raise a signal for the nations and will assemble the banished of Israel, and gather the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth."

PRAY that more Jews will be called to immigrate to Israel.

PRAY that they will assimilate in to society and overcome language barriers to remain in the land.

PRAY that Gentiles will bless and assist the return of Jews wherever possible. Isaiah 49:22 - "Thus says the Lord GOD: "Behold, I will lift up my hand to the nations, and raise my signal to the peoples; and they shall bring your sons in their arms, and your daughters shall be carried on their shoulders.""

PRAY for those who are followers of Yeshua to be welcomed for Aliyah as readily as other Jews.


Romans 11:25-27 says,..."Lest you be wise in your own sight, I do not want you to be unaware of this mystery, brothers: a partial hardening has come upon Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And in this way all Israel will be saved, as it is written, "The Deliverer will come from Zion, he will banish ungodliness from Jacob"; "and this will be my covenant with them when I take away their sins.""

PRAY a spirit of revelation to enlighten those who are veiled.

PRAY that followers of Yeshua will be bold to speak and opportunities will be made to share their faith with Jewish friends and neighbours.

PRAY for the salvation of those who faithfully follow Jewish traditions and keep their laws. May they understand and accept the sacrifice of Yeshua for them.

PRAY for those in power to hear the voice of the Lord and obey it.

Thank you for praying with us for Israel and for God's purposes to be fulfilled. May God bless you.
Have a blessed Shabbat and weekend.
