Praying God’s Name and Will for Israel

LORD, You told of a future time when Jerusalem would be a city without walls (Zechariah 2:4). You said You would be a Wall of Fire   all around it, and Your glory would be inside it (Name and Will: Zechariah 2:5). Let the accomplishments of Your people be recognized as Your doing. Prepare their hearts to receive Your word for what You have spoken, You will accomplish (Ezekiel 36:36).

Praying God’s Name and Will for Israel

LORD, we bless Israel with peace that comes only from waiting on You, from relying on Your steadfast love and great power to redeem (Will: Psalm 130:7). We bless its borders with political protection because a faithful God Overshadows with His Wings (Name: Psalm 36:8). We bless its people with confidence because their reliance is in God of Hope (Name: Psalm 146:5).

Praying God’s Name and Will for Israel

God, You said many times in Your word: Fear not, for I am with you, be not frightened, for I am your God. (Will: Isaiah 41:10) We bless those working to keep Israel safe. Give the leaders of the military, police and security forces discernment as plans are made. Protect those executing strategies against their enemies’ weapons of war, verbal attacks and emotional abuse. As they stay alert to the country’s conditions, may they feel Your peace. May they trust in You, Fear Chaser (Name: Genesis 26:24 implied).

Praying God’s Name and Will for Israel

The eyes of the nations are focused on the country to which You attached Your name. In the past when Israel made You angry by rejecting Your rules, disobeying Your laws, desecrating Your sabbaths and giving their hearts to idol worship, You did not act as a man but as a Holy God. You acted for the sake of Your name. It is Your will that Your name is not profaned in the sight of other nations (Will: Ezekiel 20:9). Discipline rebellious people but protect their nation. We ask this because You value Your name, Glory of Israel (Name: 1 Samuel 15:29).
