1. Jacob's Trouble - the question

    Why should believers pray for and help Jewish people in the nations to make aliyah - to return to the land of Israel - if two-thirds of them are going to get slaughtered there in Jacob's trouble (Jer. 30:7)?…

  2. At Intercessors for Israel's 2013 International Prayer Conference in Jerusalem, I shared a message called "The Judgments of God" - with an emphasis on His judgments on nations today. God has used Israel in the Old Testament as an example of how He deals with national sin, especially when a nation based upon His laws rebels against Him. However, the Bible plainly states that Israel's miraculous end time restoration brings into play another factor: in the last days God judges nations according to their leaders' attitudes and actions regarding His promise to restore Israel. God has staked His reputation, His Name, on this. His whole redemptive plan now focuses on Israel being in the land that He promised to them.

  3. Considering that the current crisis and the headlines in and about Israel change very rapidly, how can we consistently intercede and know we are hitting God's target?

  4. What does it mean to "pray for God's will to be done on earth as it is written in heaven?" There are many Christians who pray for Israel who are only concerned with praying for the salvation of the Jewish People (Israel). When others pray for different things concerning Israel, those prayers are often criticized as being soulish or carnal. However in my mind, praying only for the salvation of Israel in broad terms does not take into consideration the steps the Lord will use to get there.
