April 2023 Prayer Points – Intercession for Passover
Intercession for Passover-
The Passover story is told every year at the Seder, the meal commemorating the exodus of the Jews from Egypt. Retelling the flight from slavery in Egypt into freedom becomes an opportunity for the Jewish person to look at what holds them in slavery today. This could be their year to experience an exodus from sin and death into the freedom of a personal relationship with God through Jesus.
Three major religions are holding religious observations during the first three weeks of April. Ramadan continues until April 20, eight-days of Passover runs April 6-13, and Resurrection Day/Easter occurs on April 9. Tensions run high in Israel as the spirit world clashes. The spiritual forces are causing divisions in government, military, and families. The government continues moving forward in spite of demonstrators’ uproar to divide the nation. The military that always stands with the government now has reservists openly showing opposition. The Messianic community is reeling from recent attacks on families. Numbering in the tens of thousands, the community is still small enough that everyone knows someone affected by the tragedies. Congregations are grieving for families and their brothers and sisters in the Lord. Well aware of the growing internal weakness, Israel’s enemies are uniting and will wait for the right time to strike. This year is poised for a disastrous outcome unless the Lord intervenes.
Has God abandoned Israel? Has God reneged on His promises? “By no means!” Romans 11:1 Prayer matters. Recent reports tell of attacks and deaths inside Israel. Yet, more than 150 attacks were thwarted in three months. Obviously many prayer outcomes never make the news. However, our hope lies in the faithfulness of the Lord who answers the intercessor’s prayers. All the glory to Him.
“For just as you were at one time disobedient to God but now have received mercy because of their disobedience, so they too have now been disobedient in order that by the mercy shown to you they also may now receive mercy. For God has consigned all to disobedience, that he may have mercy on all.” Romans 11:30-32 ESV
