Ten years ago (2004), IFI made its first volume of the "Praying Through the Land of Israel" series. Volume 1 is Gaza.
Here we show you what unfortunatelyturns out to be a very prophetic interview with the spokesman of the Gush Katif Counsel and a few other scenes.
We did pray fervently and consistently that we would not uproot the Jewish People from Gaza. It was not to be, and as you will see in these scenes, we are reaping the fruit of that un-Biblical and foolish decision.
At this point, the 26th day of the war with 63 Israeli soldiers killed, the great majority of Jewish Israelis (over 80%) have remained steadfast behind the government and they continue to call upon the IDF to "finish the job." I do believe that the prayer that we asked for "for the people of Israel to receive a love of our inheritance - the Land of Israel is being answered.
The people of Israel to continue to stand in unity with the Government and the IDF.
The Government to have the courage to stand against the nations if needed to finish the job.
The protection of the innocent in Gaza.
Other voices in the nations and the Body to speak up like P.M. of Canada Stephen Harper did when he clearly said that Hamas and no one else is responsible for the deaths in Gaza.
The Jewish People in exile, that these vicious anti-Israel and anti-Semitic demonstrations throughout the western world would make them realize that their home is Israel and no where else.
Eliyahu Ben-Haim, chairman of Intercessors for Israel, challenges people to see and understand the current conflict in the context of reality. Practical prayer points will help believers around the world to pray more effectively into the situation.
