October 2023 – Israel’s Relationships are Improving – Prayers
Pray for Israel – Improving Relationships
There are a few indicators Israel’s relationships are improving with other nations. The visa-free US travel is one example. However, the new Jewish year 5784 looks much the same as last year with increasing domestic conflicts, angry demonstrations and external threats. Government leaders are lacking unity to lead. Apart from the Lord, the Jewish nation is not able to withstand external threats or stop internal conflicts. In the natural this is chaos, but behind the scene, our God is working.
“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” Micah 6:8 ESV
- Israeli leaders to walk with our Lord, humbly, loving justice and showing mercy
- The Lord to bring something good out of the anti-government demonstrations, individual attacks and chaos, restoring order and calmness to His land
- The Lord will bless nations that bless Israel (Genesis 12:3)
Prayer for the People
The eight-day observance of the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) comes to a close sunset October 7. At first glance, this feast is a remembrance of temporary dwellings and God’s provision during 40 years of wandering. Small booths are constructed with openness toward the night sky with the idea the people will think on their Creator. The phrase “Feast of Ingathering” appears in Exodus 23:16. It is known as a harvest festival celebration of the physical harvest, but points to the great end-time ingathering of souls. Rabbinic tradition states that the sacrifice of 70 bulls on Sukkot represents all the nations of the world. Also, Jesus proclaimed on the final day of the festival (John 7), “Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” By this he means the Holy Spirit who comes to all who believe in Him. “Time of our rejoicing” is another name for this festival, because it is one of the most joyful celebrations found in Scripture. Seven days to spend with family and friends, eating, drinking, reflecting, honoring and remembering the God of all creation.
“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:1-4
- The depth of the night skies to stir a personal curiosity to learn more about the Creator and not depend upon the rabbinical interpretations
- Entire families to come to salvation in Messiah
Pray for Ethiopia
The northern and western regions of this nation are experiencing conflicts between tribes, and sometimes with government or outside involvement. It destroys families, communities, and what little livestock and crops families’ own. Presently, it is impossible to get supplies into villages. In spite of these conditions, Messianic congregations are thriving! In fact, the Ethiopian national AG church thanks the Lord for increases in Gentile and Messianic church plants.
“Therefore I will save my flock; they will no longer be prey. Ezekiel 34: 22a TLV
- The Messianic leaders continue to strengthen relationships with each other and fulfill plans the Lord has for them
- The Lord to hide the Messianic congregations under the shadow of His wing so they are invisible to enemies
- Provision for transportation for future classes to the Bible college
- Supernaturally, supplies and food to arrive to the war torn areas
- Plans for water wells to continue for the next time doors open to construction
