The Jerusalem Prayer List
Last updated December 5, 2019
Israel’s situation is about as difficult as possible these days. It looks like Israel is going to make a Guinness World Record for having three consecutive national elections in a 12-month period. This is all happening while the Attorney General of the State of Israel has indicted the prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu for bribery, and other minor criminal activities.
The other major party is unwilling to put matters of state first, and is dealing with personal issues that keep the state from forming a coalition government. It looks like all our politicians are playing in the sand box that is full of cat doo, and thinking only of their self-aggrandizement.
If God does not intervene soon, with the situation that Israel is politically engrossed in right now, who knows what could happen. If you love Israel, and you love the Jewish nation, and you love God’s promises in the prophets, please join us in deep supplication and prayer and intercession for Israel as a nation, and for the Israeli politicians to overcome their proclivities and think of the good of the whole nation above and beyond their own good and the good of their political parties.
The international situation of Israel with the Gaza and the Iran problem is also brewing a mean brew. The caldron is “bubble, bubble, toil and trouble”, but the birds are singing and the flowers are blooming and our leaders think that everyday is the feast of Purim.
Stand with us as a nation, pray for a national introspective by all parties involved. Lord, open the eyes of those who don’t want to see the reality, and blind the eyes of our enemies who seek to destroy Your nation Israel.
Please keep praying for Nancy and Don Hook’s family. Lucas LiVigni, for whom we prayed in the last few weeks, has died, and we pray for God’s mercy on Lucas and on his family.
Pray for Rachel, Jingyung Lee, the wife of David Kim, a Korean student in Israel. Rachel has had her breast cancer surgery and now is facing the aftermath of treatments. She is the mother of young children, and we need to continue to pray for her and her family.
Please keep praying for sister Hannah Yoshida of the Kyoto Glory Church. Her cancer is very serious, and we need to beg God for a true miracle for sister Yoshida and her family.
Our dear sister Tiz H. is amazing. She is going through a heavy chemotherapy in post-operation regiment, and in all her pictures she is just transmitting joy and hope and encouragement to anyone who has had cancer, and giving strength to people by her attitude and strength. Keep Tiz H. In your in prayers.
Please keep praying for Ilana Avramov, the wife of my first cousin living in New York City. Ilana is recovering from surgery and facing the follow-up treatments that cancer patients normally have. I enjoyed seeing Ilana and Nissim, my cousin, in New York City, and I will continue to pray for Ilana and for Nissim, and ask you to mention her name and Nissim’s name when you pray in the name of Yeshua.
The mother of a dear brother, Michael Schiffman, is very sick and very old. She is in the hospital now. Please join me and pray for Michael Schiffman’s mother.
Please keep praying for Ruby, she is still getting strong chemotherapy, but now also under much stress, having to leave her house and home and move to an assisted living facility. It is a hard thing to do if you are well, but when you are sick with cancer and receiving chemotherapy it makes it a very hard and difficult task. Please pray for Ruby to have the physical and emotional strength to go through these difficult moments in her life, and for God to have mercy on Ruby, and heal her, and give her a better life and joy in Yeshua’s grace.
Pray for our Sister Angela in Taiwan, a leader and servant of God. Angela is also going through chemotherapy these days. Her husband T.J. will be anointed as the Shepherd of the congregation next month. Please pray for T.J. and for healing for Angela, so that they can continue doing such important work for the Lord’s Kingdom in Asia.
My daughter and our granddaughter are back in California after participating in Netivyah’s 40th anniversary in Israel. Please continue to keep both Danah and Noaam in your prayers. Keep Joseph, our grandson, in your prayers, and Barry and Beth, our son and daughter-in-law.
Please keep Marcia in your prayers. Marcia is dealing with a very serious diabetic condition, and Rheumatoid Arthritis, and needs the Lord’s constant blessing to cope and deal with her illnesses, and above all, she needs God’s mercy and healing.
Please be praying for our dear sister Emma in China, and add to your prayers dear sisters named Deborah Ruth and Lydia, who also live in Beijing, China. These sisters in China could be called “The Elect Ladies”, like in the Third Epistle of John. They are doing everything that the Third Epistle of John describes that the “elect lady did”.
I ask all of you to mobilize your prayers to pray for the Aliyah and the return of the Anussim, both spiritually, outside of the adulterated brands of Christianity, back to the pure waters of God’s word, and also physically, to the land of our forefathers, the land of Zion, Jerusalem.
Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Korea. Please keep in prayers KIBI and the Israel Forum. Every one of these precious brothers and sisters are servants of God, and people who love Israel and the Jewish nation. They all ought to work together and help each other do more and better for the Lord and His Kingdom while it is still called “day”, because no one knows when the night is coming. Korea, like Israel, is tittering between the day and the night, and like Israel it is sandwiched between the big empires of the world. I pray that our brothers in Korea will all learn to work together for the bigger causes, and overcome personal issues for the sake of their country, and also for the sake of Israel.
Please keep the whole Abu-Eid family in your prayers.
Please pray a special prayer for Anna West (she is now 100 years old and continues praying for the salvation of Israel daily). You can also include Anna’s dear son Roger and his family in your prayers.
Pray for our Jewish brother Hillel from Helsinki, and Keijo and Salme in Nokia, and for Tim Tucker, Anne-Mirjami, Satu-Maria, Sinni Tuuli, Erki and Sirpa Murto, Evelina, and Eva H., all in Finland.
Pray for Patty, Andrea, and Tineke. I heard that Tineke is not doing too good these days and the doctors have stopped any active medical intervention in her case. Please pray especially for Tineke and for her soul. We believe in the God who can do even when the doctors give up on a person. God can do miracles.
Continue to pray for Julia and Victor. Pray for our dear sister Paula in Switzerland, who needs a divine breakthrough. I want to also add Barry and Dalia, two dear brothers who live in Tiberias and are suffering from illness and pain, and are in need of prayer and help.
I would like to add a dear brother and the son of a dear family of Netivyah supporters in Finland. Their son, Aaron Tani, is a young man with diabetic problems.
Please keep praying for a dear sister named Zhou WenriIan living in China. Please intercede for Pastor Isaac in Chennai. Pastor Isaac needs healing for his kidneys.
Please lift in your prayers the following brothers and sisters who need the Lord’s gracious touch of healing: George, Gary, Melanie, Nancy Hook and her family need special prayer for healing and God’s gracious hand to touch Nancy and Don.
Those in our congregation in Jerusalem that need your prayers are Sarit, David S., Gabriela, Ahuva, Leah, Ilana, Hannah, young Gabriela, Zvi D. and Batsheva, and Jonathan B. and his wife Aviva. Jonathan and Aviva just gave birth to a baby girl and named her Revaya, meaning “fully content”. Pray also for our dear sisters Laurel, Orna, Sima.
Keep Don Hook and Nancy in your prayers even more now.
A special prayer is needed for one of my “God-sons” in the Lord, D.B.A., and for his family.
These are brothers and sisters from around the world who need your prayer and your intercession, and healing: Paulo and Marcelo (please keep Marcelo and his father and family in your prayers). In Japan pray for Curita Sensei, the Abe family, Toru, Takeo Sensei, Daisuke Sensei, Tomoko San, Yumi, and her father and family.
I pray and ask you to join me and pray for Louisa and Tony. Keep our dear brother Goh and his family in your prayers and also his work. In Korea pray for Sister Christy, and special prayers for Dr. Song, and Dr. H. Kim, and the leaders and board of Israel Forum, and for those of the Onnuri Church in Seoul that pray for us and for Israel every Shabbat early morning.
Please keep brother Michael Knezevich in prayer, ask the Lord to bless his health and his family and his business. Brother Michael Knezevich is a good example to me personally. He is a dear Jewish brother who is faithful to keep his promises. There is a special blessing in God’s Kingdom for people who say “yes” and mean “yes,” or say “no” and mean “no!” We praise God for brothers and sisters who keep their word.
Please add to your prayers Ismael Alves who lives in Portugal, and Asher Gabriel in Kenya.
Please also pray for me! I am still in pain in my left leg and need your prayer for healing.
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!
