“Seek His Face”

21-Days Prayer and Fasting

Prayer Calendar

 

Monday, January 8, 2024 – Day 1

“Seek the Lord, for the Peace of Jerusalem/Israel”

The Lord tells us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6) and that those who bless Israel will be blessed and those who curse Israel will be cursed (Gen. 12:1-3). Our hearts break over the atrocities carried out by Hamas against Israel, we must stand with the Jewish people and intercede on their behalf. The bible tells us in Isaiah 45:17 and Romans 11:26 that one day all Israel will be saved. Let us pray that multitudes return to the God of their fathers and place their trust and hope in Yeshua, their Messiah.

  • Pray against the evil demonic forces wanting to destroy God’s people (Eph. 6:12).
  • Pray for protection of Jews throughout the world. (Psalm 33:12-22)
  • Pray for an awakening, for Jews to return to the God of their Father’s and to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus their Messiah (Rom. 11:1-36).

 

Tuesday, January 9 – Day 2

Seek the Lord, for healing of the Brokenhearted (Matthew 5:4, “Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted.”)

Most if not all Israelis know someone who was personally affected by the attacks on Oct. 7th. There is much heartache and heart break. Those who are in captivity, those who were released and feel guilty leaving the others behind because they know what they are going through. Those who lost loved ones, those who suffered fear as the enemy entered their neighborhood and homes, hoping they wouldn’t be discovered, the first responders and soldiers who witnessed the aftermath and take those images with them. Those who work hard at trying to identify the remains so that everyone will know what happened to their loved ones and those who are displaced and have no idea if they will be able to return home. We cannot even begin to imagine what the nation of Israel has been through. Let’s take this day to pray for God’s comfort, peace, and healing for all Israel.

  • Pray for God’s supernatural peace and protection, to give them courage and hope, and that they would feel God’s presence as we lift them up in prayer.
  • For the release of the hostages in Gaza (Ps. 106:44-48, Psalm 146:7-8, Isaiah 41:10-13, 61:1)
  • For the Lord to bring healing and comfort to all (Ps. 147:3-6; Rev.21:4).
  • The Lord’s provision for those displaced in Israel (Ps. 18:2; Ps. 73:26, Ps. 90:13-17).
  • For God to guard the hearts and minds (Phil. 4:7; Ps.34:4).
  • For all those who have suffered trauma (Ps. 10:14-15, 31:14-17, 21-22, John 16:33)

Wednesday, January 10 – Day 3

Seek the Lord, for those serving in the Military and their Families (Peace, Provision, Protection) Isaiah 41:11-13

The IDF soldiers are on the frontlines willing to sacrifice their lives to protect their families and their nation. They have left their home, their jobs and their freedom because they know that unless they win they may lose it all to the enemy. Pray that God would put an invisible shield of protection around them, that God would hide them under His wings, give them courage and strength, and comfort their hearts as they long to be home with their families. Pray for the spouses and children, parents, brothers, and sisters, who are waiting anxiously for their safe return home. Pray that God would supply all their needs according to His riches in glory and that He would move the heart of millions to send support financially and through prayers.

  • God’s shalom (peace) (Psalm 23 and Isaiah 26:3)
  • Protection for the soldiers and victory over their enemies (Psalm 91)
  • Strength, courage and grace for soldiers and their families at home (Isaiah 40:31, Deut. 31:6)
  • Abundant provisions of all kinds (Phil. 4:16-20)
  • Boldness for Messianic Jewish soldiers, to be a light and comfort for their fellow soldiers and open doors to share miracles and testimonies with non-believing soldiers. (1 Tim. 2:1-4, Ps. 73:28)

 

Thursday, January 11 – Day 4

Seek the Lord, for the Leaders in Israel

The Prime Minister, his cabinet, and all the military leaders need God’s wisdom to lead this war to victory on behalf of the nation. They need to remember that it’s by the Spirit of the Lord and His great Name that they will defeat the enemy. God fights on Israels behalf. Remember what David said when he came against Goliath, the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, a spear, and a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have taunted. This day the LORD will deliver you up into my hands,” 1 Sam.17:45-46a. and then he says at end of 46, “that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel,”

  • Pray for wisdom for Prime Minister Netanyahu, his cabinet, the generals, and commanders (Prov. 2:1-8)
  • Pray that they would turn their hearts to seek God (Jeremiah 17:5,7).
  • For God to show them the way through to victory (Psalm 27; Deut. 20:1-4; Joshua 5:13-15).
  • Strength, strategy and insight and that they would lead with supernatural anointing (Prov. 24:5-6, 10-12,14;).

 

Friday, January 12 – Day 5

Seek the Lord, to intervene against Israels enemies Ps. 10:15-18

From the beginning of the nation, Israel has had enemies who have wanted to destroy them, but GOD…God is their defender, He is the lifter of their head, He will not allow Israel to be completely destroyed because He has promised them that no one would ever be able to remove them from the land that God has given them. There are instances in the bible when God would cause confusion among their enemies and they would kill each other, or God would put fear in their hearts, and they would flee. The battle is the Lords and He sends His angels on chariots of fire as their defense, He’s done it before, He can do it again.

  • Pray that the fear of God would fall on Hamas, Hezbollah, on the enemies in Lebanon, Syria, and Iran and on every enemy of Israel and give the victory to Israel (Amos 1:6-7, Isaiah 17:13-14, Zeph. 2:4-7).
  • Pray that God would bring confusion upon them and that they would destroy themselves (Judges 7:15-22, Ps. 129:5, Ps. 5:4-6, 9-10)
  • Pray that God would bring a spirit of brokenness and repentance. That the Lord would appear to many in visions and dreams, and they would lay down their weapons and turn to the Lord (Acts 3:19, Isaiah 55:7, Eze. 33:11, 1 Tim. 2:4,

 

Saturday, January 13 – Day 6

Seek the Lord, for the innocent victims of Gaza.

Although it may seem like everyone agrees with what Hamas did and continues to do there are innocent people in Gaza. Perhaps it’s a small percentage, we don’t know but even so, the Lord tells us to pray for our enemies. So today let us lift our face to heaven to intervene for those that are in the middle of this war, at the hands of Hamas.

  • Pray that they would take the way of escape that God will provide (Gen. 21:15-17)
  • Pray that they would receive the food, shelter and protection needed (Rom. 12:19-21)
  • Pray that God would provide a life of freedom for them and that they will take it
  • Pray that the Gospel would spread, and many would come to faith in Jesus. Just as God opened the eyes of Nebuchadnezzar and Darius the Mede, God can bring many to faith in His wonderful Son, Jesus (Dan. 4:34-35, 6:25-27).

 

Sunday, January 14 – Day 7   

Seek the Lord, for our Government to stand with Israel (Psalm 33:12, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people He chose for His inheritance.”)

This nation has always been a friend and supporter of Israel, even when the President did not have a true love for the nation of Israel. When we have stood with Israel we have been blessed and every time an administration has wanted to divide Israel, we have had disasters. Let us pray that our leaders would all stand with Israel, supporting her and giving her the resources necessary to complete the task at hand. Also pray for all Christians to stand with Israel, God has not replaced Israel with the Church, they are two distinct entities; Israel is the wife of Jehovah (Isa. 54:5) and the Church is the bride of Christ (2 Cor. 11:2, Rev. 19:7), we have been grafted in.

  • Pray for our leaders to stand with Israel (Gen.12:2-3).
  • Pray that we will give her the necessary resources to defeat the enemy (Gen. 27:29).
  • Pray for all believers everywhere to support and stand with Israel (Rom. 15:27, Acts 10:1-48, Isa. 49:6)

 

Read Isaiah 60 – God’s promises to Israel of Restoration “And they shall call you The City of the LORD, Zion of the Holy One of Israel.” And “You shall know that I, the LORD, am your Savior and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.”
