The Jerusalem Prayer List
Last updated April 5, 2020
Pray for your nation now! Pray for the medical system and for those who are serving and handling the daily treatment of corona patients. Pray also for Israel and for countries like Spain and Italy and those other countries where there are hundreds of dead daily.
Also don’t forget to pray for the following prayer list for which you have been praying. There are people who depend on your prayers and your support. Today Yehuda and Daniel, Jay, Nir, and Noah, have worked 10 to 12 hours serving the poor of Jerusalem.
They gave out tons of food, tons of meat and chicken, and tons of vegetables and fruit and canned goods, rice, and packages of Matzot, and at the end of the day they loaded up the new van with packages and took them to the homes of the older people who could not come out to get their packages.
I suppose that they provided sufficient food to cover the entire Passover Holiday. The quarantine is tight and people are not able to go out to shop. Especially the older generation is not being allowed to go out.
What a ministry this “Hamotzi” food program is. I know that there will be at least 1000 people in Jerusalem who will enjoy a good Passover meal because of those who have enabled Netivyah to serve with love and to share the good news.
Eli Levi, my nephew, is no longer with us. He was buried in Sofia’s Jewish cemetery on Wednesday. The surgery last week was cancerous and just a few days after the surgery the cancer became as big and maybe bigger than the tumor that was taken out a week earlier. May Eli Levi’s memory be remembered and the Lord have mercy and grace for Eli and for all of us.
I need your prayers for my health. I thank God every day for His goodness and mercy and trust Him to restore my health so that I can continue to teach His Word. I need your prayers and Marcia needs your prayers. Danah our daughter needs much prayer for her situation and so does our granddaughter Noaam. She is a wonderful young lady with many gifts, and challenges in life. Please lift Danah and Noaam in your prayers.
Please keep Michelle O., in your prayers. Michelle is a young lady who has been diagnosed with Leukemia, and also has kidney stones. She needs our prayers.
Pray for Mr. Shukrey Lawrence, who is suffering from cancer and needs our prayers for strength and healing. Shukery also needs prayer for his sons to mobilize and take better charge of his travel agency. He has served so many brothers and sisters for more than 40 years in organization of tour groups and special projects.
Nancy and Don Hook are back in Jerusalem and working. Praise the Lord for their recovery and return home, Rachel – Jingyung Lee is going throughout Chemotherapy, Hannah Yoshida from Koyto is dealing with a serious cancer and needs your special prayers, Tiz H., Lion H. are two heroes who are on the way to full recovery but please keep them in your prayers, Ilana Avrahamov is also getting treatment and on the way to recovery, Michael Shiffman’s mother, Ruby L. from Oklahoma City is struggling with cancer already for a long season. Please pray for her healing and remission.
Sister Angela from Taiwan is also going through the chemotherapy treatments and I ask you to lift sister Angela and her family before the throne of grace and healing. Also pray for Marcia Shulam, Joseph Shulam, Danah and Noaam Shulam Sanders, Barry Shulam and family, June Saunders, Ann West, Um Mahmud Abu-Eid and Jimmy Abu-Eid and his family, Keijo and Salme our dear brothers in Finland, Tim Tucker, Satu-Maria, Sinni Tuuli, Erki and Sirpa Murto, Evelina, and Eva H., Patty, Andrea, Julia and Victor, Aaron Tani, Zhou WenriIan, Paulo, Marcelo, Marcelo and his father. Keep our brothers and sisters in your prayers: Abe family, Toru, Takeo Sensei, Daisuke Sensei, Tomoko San, Yumi and her father pastor Ohara, George, Gary, Melanie, Sarit, Gabriela, Ahuva, Leah, Ilana, Hannah, young Gabriela, Zvi D. and Batsheva, Jonathan B. and his wife Aviva and their new baby, Pastor Isaac in Chennai, India, Louisa and Tony in Hong Kong. Please look at your prayer as casting a vote in the Heaven in favor of every brother and sister that you are praying for. As a word of grace to be heard before the mercy seat of the Almighty in favor of these brothers and sisters from around the world.
Now the coronavirus has spread to more than 120 countries and it seems to be spreading inside these countries. Israel has the coronavirus and in the last week the numbers of people who have contracted the coronavirus has quadrupled and we already have 5 people dead.
They are all older men and women and it is dangerous for people who have chronic illnesses. I was to go see a professor of urology at Hadassah hospital on Mt. Scopus. I called him to cancel the appointment because the government has issued new rules restricting movement to within 100 meters of you place of residence.
Like it was in China, in Wuhan and the province of Hubei. Now the Chinese government is easing the quarantine in China and in Wuhan. In Israel the government is making the quarantine more stringent. In Italy and France, the number of the dead is already in the thousands.
Israel has sent airplanes to Peru to bail out 3000 young Israelis and bring them home. The flights were financed by donations and one flight was paid for by the Israeli government. There is no other government in the world that has done this kind of service for its citizens. The same was done in Italy and Spain, and India, and Thailand, and next is Poland. As disciples of Yeshua we all ought to stand with Israel and support the care that it is providing for its citizens stranded all around the world in the wake of the coronavirus.
The CDC has already declared this coronavirus as a worldwide plague. Let the world learn that the Lord God of Israel, and the Father of all, who loves the world so much that He gave us His only begotten Son so that no one would perish, but all have everlasting life, will never leave us nor forsake us.
For those who need blessings in their life and Business: Roger W., Ema, Deborah Ruth, Lydia, Sima, Laurel S., Naomi, Orna, David S., Daniel, Ayla, Hillel, Elhanan, Tony, Dr. Song, Michael Knezevich, Ismael Alves, Asher Gabriel, M. Ahuva. Please pray for a dear brother who is well into his 90’s and lost his wife a couple of weeks ago. He name is Dov H.
There is one more major prayer request for the State of Israel. The total mess that the Israeli government is in right now has never happened before. The chances for a unity government are becoming slimmer and slimmer from day to day. The two big political parties have lost their compass and can’t find a way to square the circle and form a government.
It is truly a sad time for the Israeli government and for politicians on all fronts and of all party lines. We need your prayers for Israel and also for your own countries. It seems like this coronavirus has driven the world into a tailspin that is hard to get out of.
The enmity and hate that is buzzing out of the mouths of these politicians against the other side is so serious that I pray that God will not lose his patience with us as a nation. Leadership problems were considered by the 8th century BCE prophets as being a divine punishment.
The rejection of the Lord’s authority and our depending on the power of men is something that just might be a divine punishment for our nation. I hope not and pray that it is not something that God has ordained for us. I ask you to intercede for Israel and for the disciples of Yeshua in this land.
We too must find ways to unite and to care for and work with each other, ignoring denominational lines and looking for a restoration of order and cooperation and the unity that is absolutely necessary in such a time as this. We can’t shine a light in the darkness without being a light within the body of the Messiah first. Alone, our personal light is weak. If we unite our joint light will be as a million watt projector that will be seen over the whole land of Israel.
This is my prayer for the body of the Messiah in Israel and around the world. I don’t believe that God will abandon us, but I do believe that we, and you and every friend that Israel has in the world must pray for this nation to wake up and see the enemies of Israel rejoicing at the sorry condition of our politicians. We don’t want to have a fourth round of elections in 2020.
The coronavirus is threatening the economy of the world with a great recession and depression. Some of our major supporters have already lowered the amount of their support. They have done this not only toward Netivyah, but for all the ministries that they are supporting, and they are many.
I would like to first ask you to pray about your part in supporting Netivyah Bible Instruction Ministry. Second, I would like for you who stand with us in prayer and financially to do your very best to stay on board with us and communicate. We realize that times may be hard for several years, but we also realize that God has chosen and blessed you for such a time as this.
I wish all of you, who stand with Israel and who pray for Jerusalem, the best of the Lord’s blessings and the fulfillment of all His promises to His faithful children. Those who hear God and do His will are the ones who are called wise! Those who only hear His word and don’t do it are called foolish! Let us all strive to be wise and never foolish! The best is yet to come!
The Lord God of Israel and the Grace of Yeshua our Messiah, King, Teacher, Rabbi, and Lord be with you all!
