THE JERUSALEM PRAYER LIST JUNE 16, 2016
By Joseph Shulam
Last week I wrote and asked everyone to pray against the Muslim Terrorism around the world. It seems as I have written that hate is the main cause of religious terrorism all around the world, and again last week terrorists strike again in Orlando, in Paris, in Israel, and of course in Syria, Iraq, and Europe. Again I ask everyone to pray against terror, terrorists, terrorist organisations, and especially against the hate spirit that besets humanity since the first murder of Abel by his own brother Cain. I pray for God’s active intervention against those whose only and every motivation is hate, death, killing, and destructions of civilisation.
We are all actually Levites serving in God’s Temple (our own bodies and communities) and as Levites intercession and protection of God’s interests in the World is actually our calling and duty. In fact in last week and this week’s PARASHA portion of reading from the Torah in every Synagogue the duties of the Priests and the Levites are spelled out. We are the go-between between man and God. If we, the Disciples of Yeshua, don’t stand in the gap and resist the hateful spirit that is motivating people to just go out and shoot innocent people and stab and strap themselves with bombs and go into public places to blow themselves in order to kill as many innocent people – who is going to stop them? The only force that I know can stop terrorism is God Himself. I know that all this Islamic TERRORISM and terrorism in general has been and still is a GOD issue. The West is trying to ignore the core issue that is RELIGION that preaches and teaches and promotes hate and killing, and prejudice, and discrimination. However, when the West wakes up it might be too late because the next generation might already have joined these forces of hate.
Please pray against the immorality and libertinism that is making every abomination Kosher and those who stand on the Word of God and on High Moral Principles are ostracised as bigots and narrow-minded prudes. This is a topic for prayer my dear brothers. Only God can help us against this spirit.
Pray for Israel as a country and pray for Israel’s government and parliament.
Pray for the United States of America. The election campaign in the USA is getting into high gear. The fate of the free world rests on the shoulders of this country and we all ought to call upon God for America’s sake and for the World’s sake, of course also for Israel’s sake.
Pray for Noaam my granddaughter. She is on a cross-country trip by car with her father. Pray for her safety both physically and in every other way.
Keep praying for all my family. We all need the touch of God’s grace and healing. This is true for Barry our son, and for Danah who is healing slow from a serious surgery, and of course for Marcia my wife and my self. For Marcia and me pray not only for healing but also for traveling graces. We are in Californian now and from here we fly to Nashville, and to Dallas, and from there home to Jerusalem.

We were in Finland and it was wonderful to see brothers and sisters and participate again in the Karmel Kotti Seminar that has been going now for 35 years. This year it was especially full with brothers and sisters from all around Finland. One of our very special pleasures was to participate in the new congregation affiliated with Netivyah in Finland. It is a congregation of our second-generation brothers and sisters dedicated to the Restoration of the New Testament Church and the Restoration of Israel. Please pray for the Grace and Truth Congregation in Espoo, Finland, and for the members and leadership.
Please pray for our dear brother Isaac Kugler, who is recovering from serious surgery at home.
Pray for the ministries who stand with us and with Israel ask God to bless them all and each one for their specific needs: KIBI, North Boulevard in Murfreesboro, Dream Blue, Roger W. and his business, Larry Huch and NewBeginnings, Israel Apu, Prayer for Israel in Germany, Bridge between Japan and Zion, SKK, NewLife, Har Zion Congregation, and Teaching from Zion Ministry, and brothers from the Philippines. Especially pray for the new congregation in Vitoria, E.S., Brazil and their leadership, and for the Teaching from Zion Ministry in Brazil, and the Har Zion Congregation in Belo-Horizonte, and for the Sar EL congregation in Curitiba.
Of course pray for every brother and sister from the World over, that prays for Israel and for us and shares his or her blessing with us in Jerusalem so that we can do the Work of The Lord.

We pray for the following dear brothers and sisters: Pastor Curita in Tokyo, Toru San, and the husband of Yumi, Sadako San, Shoko San, Takeo Sensei and Tomoko San all in Japan. We have brothers and sisters who are not physically sick, but they need the hand of God’s blessing on their lives: Michael Knezevich in Portland, Raymond and his family and his company, Laurel S., and please add to this prayer all those people whom you know and ask the Mighty God of Israel and Yeshua our Messiah to show their mercy and grace on these fine disciples of Yeshua.
God bless you all and keep His promises to you who pray for the Peace of Jerusalem and for Netivyah Bible Instruction Ministry and for the Roeh Israel Congregation.
