From Jim Hutchens: These prayer points come to us regularly from an intercessor living in Israel who wishes to remain anonymous.
**THE IRAN DEAL AND BEYOND:
–Obama can make the Iran deal even if Congress rejects it. Due to Obama’s unchecked use of executive orders, he could remove approximately 12 Iranian banks from the list of sanctions; enabling these institutions to conduct business with the global financial community without the penalties of sanctions. Who knows what other Executive Orders he might create to circumvent Congress and the Constitution? Even though, at this time, the U.S. Congress probably has enough votes to reject the Iran deal, it is unlikely that the legislators will have enough votes to override an Obama veto. It appears that, either way the vote goes, Obama intends to make good on his promise to Iran that the United States will not prohibit the new freedom that Iran is being given by the international community … that is unless YHVH intervenes and vetoes Obama.
— Pray that YHVH would “hedge in” Mr. Obama, so that he loses his ability to legislate from the White House, and to dictate through illegal executive orders.
— Pray that HEAVEN’S Chief Executive will strike down Obama’s many executive orders, and empower righteous legislators and judges to nullify those wicked overreaches in the natural.
— Pray that righteous leadership … that courageous voices … will rise up in the Congress, and in the courts, to challenge Obama’s numerous executive orders and unchecked use of power.
— Pray that the hand of YHVH will humble the arrogance of this leader, who uses deceit and manipulation to accomplish goals that are detrimental to Israel, and to United States. May it be soon!
— Confess the sin of this nation in regard to its recent treatment of Israel, and asked the Lord for His forgiveness and mercy.
–American Christians are rally behind Israel, while some American rabbis are promoting the Iran deal to this nation’s leadership. The International Fellowship Christians and Jews organization has initiated a massive campaign entitled, “NO NUKES FOR THE MULLAHS”. The organization is contacting all members of Congress, and telling them to stand against the Iran deal, on the basis that Iran is totally untrustworthy, that it is the world’s largest supporter Islamic terrorism, and that it persists in stating its ultimate goal, which is to annihilate the United States and Israel. Other Christian organizations, including CUFI and the ICEJ, are also lobbying the legislators against agreeing to this horrific Iranian deal. However, it appears that only the bible believing Christians, and YHVH-fearing Jews, hold this priority. Rev. Al Sharpton has told black pastors to stand in their pulpits on Sunday and tell their congregants to contact their member of Congress to SUPPORT the Iran deal. Despite the fact that the US military is comprised of only 30.7% people of color, Sharpton has declared that the Iran deal will put the blacks disproportionally at risk to the whites, (because Sharpton claims that more blacks are serving in the armed forces) if war results from a rejected deal.
As the Christians appeared to be divided on this issue, according to their understanding of the truth regarding Israel, so also a division is taking place among the Jews in America. 340 rabbis (largely from the Reform, Progressive (Humanist), and Conservative streams of Judaism) are taking a stand to affirm the bad deal. These rabbis wrote to members of Congress requesting that they support the Iran deal; stating that those the Jews, who are in flavor in rejecting the deal, do not speak for the Jewish community at large. Is becoming very clear to observers that the line of division, pertaining to this issue, is being drawn according to the authority, which the professed Jews or Christians hold in regard to the Bible. Wherever humanism and human intellect denies the reality and power of YHVH, His authority, and His word, Israel is marginalized. As the saying goes, “just because I stand in a garage doesn’t mean that I am an automobile.” Being a Christian or Jew, in name only (sitting in a house of worship), does not mean that the individuals revere and honor YHVH or His word.
–Sixty-seven votes are needed in the US Senate to reject the Iran deal. Pray that there will be more and 67 votes. Pray that the campaigns being conducted by God-fearing Christians and Jews (requesting Congress to reject the Iran deal) will succeed.
— Pray that the Lord would prick the consciences of all professed Christians and Jews, who are members of Congress, and warn them about the price they will pay, from His hand, if they allow their vote to be bought by the Left on this matter.
— Pray that the Lord will fill the hours of sleep, enjoyed by these members of Congress, with dreams and visions of the destruction and judgment that will come, if they vote in favor of the Iran deal.
— Pray for all the members of the black community, who are being deceived and manipulated by Al Sharpton (and others like him), to discredit this man, and to ignore him.
— Pray for the bible-believing, black congregations throughout the United States to arise in strength and in truth, against the multiple agendas that this administration, and its pawns, have been force-feeding them.
— Pray that true Jews and Christians continue to unite, and to become even stronger, in their agreement regarding issues surrounding Israel’s life and welfare.
— Continue to pray that the cancer of humanism will be rooted out from within Jewish synagogues, and out from within Christian churches, doctrines and policies.
**THE NATIONS ARE PLOTTING AGAINST ISRAEL:
–THE USA has declassified some security files regarding Israel’s Nukes. In a very suspicious move of timing, the US government has exposed key information regarding Israel’s nuclear program from between the years of 1969 and 1972. I use the word “suspicious” because this declassification comes at a time when Israel is urging the U.S. Congress to reject the Iran nuclear deal. It seems as if this is a move to punish Israel, as well as to serve as a warning to her, which was aroused by Netanyahu’s refusal to go along with the deal that Obama has promoted. At a time when the Islamic nations are suggesting that Israel must be disarmed, and its nuclear capabilities exposed (if Iran is to be limited in its nuclear capability), Israel’s closest ally from the past, is now serving as her betrayer; seeking to undermine her strength and security. Israel was ordered by the US to sign the 1968 nuclear Non-Proliferation treaty that went into effect in 1970. Israel never signed on to that agreement. The Americans demanded that Israel not arm, deploy, or test her Jericho missiles with nuclear warheads. She was to agree that Israel would not be the first nation to introduce nuclear weapons into the near East. However, when Russia started supplying Arab nations in the region with the essential weaponry, the Israelis realized that to sign on to a contract that would tie their nation’s hands, if self-defense was necessary, they backed away from the agreement. In addition, Israel had been order to allow inspections of the Dimona nuclear facility on an annual or bi-annual basis. That arrangement was ended in 1968 (following the 1967 war) during the time of Nixon’s administration, due to Arab hostilities, and to increasing capabilities of Israel’s neighbors, being supplied from the hands of the Russian government. To this day, Israel has not signed onto the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. It has been suggested that Israel holds an arsenal of 100 nuclear warheads, and ranks as the 6th most powerful nuclear nation in the world.
–Pray that YHVH will keep Israel’s offensive and defensive weapons intact and undercover.
–Pray that YHVH will give new witty inventions in weaponry to Israel … keeping the new developments secret, and keeping Israel ahead of the curve.
— Praise the Lord that Israel refused to submit to the shackling requirements of the United States in regard to her nuclear defense.
— Pray that the Lord would block any efforts by the international community to invade, to inspect, or to dismantle Israel’s military defenses.
— Pray that the Lord would protect the Dimona nuclear facility from all terror attacks and from all attacks during war.
— Pray that the people of Israel would come to totally depend upon YHVH as their Defender, and Secret Weapon.
— Pray that YHVH would hold this administration accountable for uncovering Israel to her enemies, and for making her vulnerable through the release of these documents.
— Pray that Israel would not be intimidated by the release of this information, and that she would stay the course.
— Pray that the Lord would protect and prevent the release of any other classified information in regard to Israel’s security.
**The BDS movement in Spain has successful had a Jewish performer disinvited from participating in a music event. The Rototom Sunsplash reggae festival in Spain, decided to side with the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction movement by rejecting Matisyahu as a performer at the event, when he refused to sign their agreement in support of a Palestinian State … and a declaration that Israel is an illegal occupier of the Land. Such mandate is outrageous in a democratic nation that has anti-Discrimination laws in place. Personally, I’m grateful that this talented Jewish performer found out about this agenda in advance of his performance, and that he held his ground against this form of anti-Semitism. Keep in mind that the BSD movement is a very old strategy. The Nazis effectively used it, as have many other societies over the generations. The first step is to make the people suspicious of Jews, then critical of the Jews, then blame the Jews, separate out the Jews, and than hatefully strip them of their prosperity, possessions and their legal rights, so that they can destroy the Jews. And the only reasons for these steps to be taken are to eliminate the Jewish people, to strip them from their inheritance, and to take away their position of authority given to them by YHVH. It will ultimate fail every time.
–Pray that YHVH would cut the feet out from under this BDS movement, and bring its authors to shame.
–Pray for the Lord to replete whatever the BDS movement depletes of Israel’s resources, opportunities, prosperity, honor, or security.
–Praise the Lord that Matisyahu refused to bow to the demands of this festival organization. Pray that his opportunities to perform will be increased 7 fold.
— Pray that the blatant anti-Semitism, contained in the demands placed on this performer, will birth righteous indignation across the Jewish community, and throughout the Christian world. Pray that the indignation will translate into effective countermeasures against the BDS movement.
— Pray that the steps taken by Matisyahu will encourage other Jewish artists, educators, and businessmen to likewise reject unholy demands that would force them into taking a position against Israel.
— Pray that the Lord will BDS on all of those, who seek to marginalize, and to criminalize, Israel for standing in obedience to the word of the Lord in regard to the Jewish inheritance.
**United Nations Security Council has come out in support of a 16 point, French resolution that seeks to resolve the conflict in Syria, by creating new government in that nation. With more than 240,000 people killed in Syria since the recent conflict began, and with 12 million Syrian refugees now at risk, the resolution seeks to form a coalition of various parties and factions, in the hope of bringing this conflict to an end. Russia is in support of this resolution, even though it indicates that Assad will eventually be displaced as the leader that nation. If it moves forward, the new peace strategy is to be implemented sometime in the month of September. The expressed intention of the resolution is to end the suffering of the Syrian people, and to enlist the Syrians in the regional effort to battle ISIS. Keep in mind that whenever the United Nations arms the rebel forces in Syria, it will be arming masses of Israel’s enemies currently operating in that nation.
–Pray that any peace (piece) deal, intending to sort out the Iranian crisis, will be authored and approved by YHVH.
–Pray that any diplomatic settlement established to bring peace to the region, will not enable Iran and Russia to garner more power in the region; hovering over Israel’s northern border.
–Pray that the Israeli government leadership and military leadership will have their eyes wide open to the dangers and developments that may unfold with this Syrian peace process.
–Pray that all the hidden things of wickedness, contained in the agendas and personnel of the various factions operating in Syria, will be exposed.
— Pray for salvation, provision, and relief for the people suffering in Syria as a result of this conflict of power. Pray that in their suffering they discover Yeshua.
— Pray for revival to arise in Syria that will break the sword of Islam’s power.
— Pray for the Lord to protect the innocent in Syria, and to protect the Christians, who are currently within reach of ISIS, and of other Islamic groups that seek to kill them.
–Iran will arm the “West Bank” Palestinians to open up an eastern front against Israel:
The ink is not even dry on the document signed with Iran by the P5+1, and already Iran is pledging to supply the Palestinians in Judea and Samaria with weapons to destroy Israel. This week a new Iranian military command force was set up by orders from the supreme Ayatollah. The Eastern Command of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard …The Al Qods Brigades … acting as an external terrorist organization … has been given the assignment to empower, to distribute weapons to, and to organize terror attacks against Israel, from among the Palestinians living Judea and Samaria. The Ayatollah wants the so-called West Bank to become a hostile territory from which Islam can destroy Israel, much like what Hezbollah has done in the territory of South Lebanon. Hezbollah and the Palestinian forces will operate solely as Iranian surrogates, and thus will be financed, directed, and equipped by Iran as funds, which are being released from the sanctions, become available. A couple of weeks ago, the regime in Tehran published a 416-page book, authored by Ali Khamenei, entitled “Palestine.” On the cover is the announcement: “The flag bearer of Jihad to liberate Jerusalem.” The text declares that Israel MUST be destroyed because the Jews have stolen the sacred Islamic city of Jerusalem. Throughout the manuscript the word “nabudi” is applied to Israel. That word means annihilation. Also appearing frequently in the text are the words; imha – meaning disappearing or fading out; and “zaval” meaning effacement. Is Iran serious about destroying the Jews and possessing her Land? OH YES! And now Iran is being given the means, with which to fulfill its aspirations. The initial strategy outlined in the book is to make life unbearable for the Jews, so that most will abandon the Land to return to the Diaspora … and so that aliyah will totally stop. Those, who do not leave will be slaughtered, according to this plan.
–Pray that the Angels of YHVH will enter into Judea and Samaria as a massive army to protect the Jewish people, and to thwart this Islamic agenda.
— Pray for the utter humiliation and defeat of the Revolutionary guard, and for the elimination of this wicked Iranian regime.
–Pray that YHVH would personally deal with the Ayatollahs and with the mullahs.
— Pray for the people in Iran to be able to overthrow this wicked agenda. So many of the Persian people do not hate the Jews. So many of them disapprove of the direction that the regime has taken against Israel, that we need to pray for YHVH’s mercy to enable them to stand up against these wicked powers.
— Pray for the fear of YHVH to come down upon the Revolutionary guard like a consuming cloud; causing this wicked forced to crumble like dust.
— Pray for the re-formation of the true Iranian army that was displaced by the Revolutionary guard when the ayatollahs came to power.
— Pray for Israel to receive the divine revelation, and the divine empowerment, necessary for the IDF to make a preemptive strike, if that is the will of the Lord.
— Pray for the intelligence and security forces, which are operating in Judea and Samaria. Pray for their protection, and for them to have super natural abilities for seeing, hearing, and thwarting potential terror attacks.
**Israel is preparing for a potential military engagement across the Syrian border: Massive military exercises and drills have been taking place on the Golan Heights this week, as troops prepare for a potential short-term incursion into the Syrian side of the border if necessary. Islamic forces are lining up along that border, and occasionally firing across into Israel to instigate an attack. It appears that the Moslems may be assembling supplies, personnel, and weapons to make an incursion into Israel, much like the take-over, which was enacted by the Moslems in the Sinai. Israel is preparing.
–Pray that YHVH would hold back any attack or incursion until HE calls it forth
–Pray that the Israeli forces wouldn’t be baited into jumping ahead of YHVH’s timing for this engagement
–Pray for protection to be upon the Jews against any cross border firing or rocket launches.
–Pray for divine, strategic, wisdom to be given to the military leaders staging along this northern border.
–Pray that, as Israel looks to the threats from the north, she isn’t ambushed by Hamas from the south.
–Pray for angelic coverage over the Lebanese border from potential attacks or incursion from Hizbullah.
** ISIS has released a document (“A Brief History of the Islamic State Caliphate (ISC), The Caliphate According to the Prophet,) outlining a 6 phase plan for the destruction of Israel and the West. The new playbook of ISIS calls for member of the Taliban and al-Qaida to join with ISIS to form the global Caliphate, which will infiltrate and eliminate the West. The document declares that Israel is the source of the ISIS movement because of its core wickedness, and it refers to Obama as a “mule for the Jews”. It calls for an “end of the world” battle to be conducted against the USA and its western allies.
–Pray that this publication, which outlines the destruction of Israel, will become the reality for the destruction of ISIS … that it backfires, and returns upon the head of ISIS.
–Pray for division between the Taliban, ISIS, and al-Qaida so that they will never cooperate or unite with each other.
–Pray that any hidden cells of ISIS (or of any other surrogates or comrades of ISIS) operating within Israel will be exposed and destroyed.
–Pray that YHVH will hand ISIS defeat after defeat … humiliation after humiliation … if it tries to attack Israel or the Israelis.
–Pray for deliverance, from the grip/delusion of ISIS, which has seized any foolish Moslems … those who have carelessly hooked their wagons to this wicked ISIS star. For all those members of ISIS, who are in intentional league with hell … for all those, who have willingly given their minds and bodies to demons, in service satan’s agenda against the Kingdom and people of YHVH, pray that these individual will be destroyed by the hand of YHVH.
**Temple Mount is heating up:
According to the agreement made in 1967, Jews are to be free to visit the Temple Mount. However, any Jew or Christian is severely restricted in their opportunities to go up there to visit, and they are never allowed to pray on the Mount. Furthermore, if one ventures up onto Temple Mount during an accepted time of visitation, he/she can expect to be greeted with jeers, shouts of “allah hu akbar”, and may even face acts of threat and violence. Take a quick look at this video, which shows an elderly Jewess going to the Temple Mount for the first time. A woman in a black burka punches her in the side. http://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Elderly-Jewish-woman-says-police-did-not-intervene-after-assaulted-on-Temple-Mount-412488
As time goes on the Arabs get more bold and more violent … not just the men, but the women and children as well. This is a power keg situation.
–Pray for protection to be upon all the Jews, who go up on to Temple Mount
–Pray for protection of those, who stand in prayer at the Wailing Wall, just below Temple Mount
–Pray for justice to be done on behalf of the Jews in this matter
–Pray for the Israeli police to be bold and unafraid to confront the angry Arabs on the Mount.
–Pray for evenhandedness in dealing with the Jews and Arabs in conflict upon the Temple Mount. Too often the self-defending Jews are arrested and the Arabs are left alone, even if the Arabs are the attackers.
–As more evidence is presented that what is now called the Temple Mount is likely NOT the true site of the two Jewish temples … but rather that the City of David was the actual site (and what is now called the Temple Mount was the site of the Roman garrison) … pray that the Jews would embrace the true, revealed location, and stop going up into that Islamic stronghold.
–In that the Moslems continually use the false claim (that the Jews are desecrating and Judaizing the al Aksa Mosque), as their just reason for attacking the Israelis, pray that somehow the truth, about what is really going on, will rise to the surface. Pray that there will be people in the nations, who will be interested in knowing the truth. May the truth make a difference.
**The Islamic holiday of Eid al-Adha will be taking place on the same day as the Jewish Yom Kippur.
–Pray even now that this Islamic holiday, that involves the shedding of tons of animal blood in sacrifice, will not empower demonic entities to arise against the Jews observing their sacred Jewish holiday.
–Pray for the Lord to protect His people as they approach Him on Yom Kippur.
–Pray that any plans to attack the Jews on Sept. 23rd will be discovered and thwarted.
**The Palestinian Authority is telling the world that Israel is conducting “field executions” of Palestinian youth … particularly in Judea and Samaria.
Last Saturday, an 18-year-old Palestinian stabbed an IDF soldier near Nablus, and was shot to death in the self-defense response by the Israeli. Immediately the Palestinian Authority declared that the Israeli forces had been given a green light by the government to execute Palestinian youth. The Palestinian cry foul and the whole world condemns Israel, based upon their lies. Over the past several weeks there have been several incidences of deadly violence enacted against the Jewish people in Israel. As the attacks have been rebuffed, some of the assailants have been injured or killed. That would seem to be a natural, or logical, consequence falling upon someone, who is attempting to kill an Israeli. However Abbas is planning to present charges against Israel in the International Criminal Court of Justice; suggesting that Jews are conducting terror attacks, and executions against the Palestinians. As a result of these outrageous claims, the hands of the IDF soldiers are being tied more and more, as the leadership seeks to keep the Israeli forces far above reproach. This endangers the Israel soldiers and the citizens as well. It emboldens the Palestinian terrorists, whenever they see their lies successfully binding up the Israeli powers.
–Pray that the shackles will be removed from the hands of Israel’s guardians.
–Pray that when the soldiers need to fight back, or to use lethal force in defending themselves and others, they will not hesitate to do so.
–Pray for wisdom in the military leaders, who are setting up the regulations and putting restrictions upon the troops in their effort to back off the false accusations … and to prove to the world that Israel is not the aggressor. The world will not accept any Israel proof of these things.
–Pray that nothing will come of the charges against Israel in the international criminal court.
–Pray for the SPIRIT OF TRUTH to be released throughout Israel and the Palestinian territories. BIND DOWN THE SPIRIT OF LIES AND DECEPTIONS.
–Pray that the Chief Justice of the Universe and Heaven will rule on these false claims being submitted by the Palestinians against Israel.
**Rumors are flying that Tony Blair is working out a hudna (truce based upon deceit) between Israel and Hamas. The deal that is being put forward is for Israel to end the blockade of Gaza, and to establish a seaport for the Palestinians on the shores of Gaza. Israel is denying the claim that any such governmental negotiation with Hamas is taking place.
–Pray that nothing will come of this “truce” plan.
–Pray that Tony Blair will have urgent business elsewhere, so that he will have to abandon this fool’s mission.
–Pray that Israeli government would not ever participant in these discussions, or accept their demands, even though private Israelis may currently be involved.
–Pray that the Lord would forbid any validation of a Palestinian State or seaport in Gaza. NO AUTHORITY FOR THE PALESTIANS!
**Palestinian prisoner, and hunger striker, Mohammed Allaan, is in an Israeli hospital being force-fed. Protestors continue to create an outcry on behalf of his release. They claim that being force-fed is cruel torture, and yet, they will charge Israel with the murder of a prisoner (in violation of the Geneva accords) if he dies. Israel has offered Mohammed Allaan his release from prison, if he will leave the country for a year. Personally, I believe that offer is dangerous and irresponsible … an effort to appease the false charges of prisoner abuse being leveled at Israel by the international community. Palestinian prisoners must not be given a “get out of jail free card” by refusing to eat. This hunger striker is physically very weak, so perhaps the Israelis believe that if they release him, he likely won’t be a threat anyway. However it is the principle that must be considered … as well as the dangerous precedent it establishes. Israel could have thousands of Palestinian prisoners refusing to eat, so that they can be released. Israel must not be intimidated or manipulated by the humanists or by the Islamic agenda. Israeli prisons are like 3 or 4 star hotels compared the Islamic prisons. It’s time for Israel to take and to hold a righteous stand on this issue … and to ignore the pressure of protests and threats coming from the manipulative Palestinians and their advocates.
–Pray that divine wisdom will prevail for dealing with these hunger strikers in prison.
–Pray that the Israeli government will not bow to the lies, or bend to the pressure by releasing those, who starve themselves to intentional depletion.
–Pray for a witty solution to be given to the Israelis for dealing with this threat.
–If the hunger striker dies, pray that there will not be a huge backlash against Israel. If the man decides not to eat, that is his choice. Let the consequences of his choice land upon his own head.
–Pray that the grip of humanism upon Israel’s decisions will break off. Let Godly wisdom prevail.
**THE WEATHER IN ISRAEL: Israel is experiencing the hottest month of August since 2010. Israel has been baking under the sun since August began. During the past week the entire country was suffering under temperatures that ranged from 104° to more than 114°. In some areas of the nation, where humidity of 80% was a factor, the real feel temperature was 117°. The searing temperatures have taken a toll among the human and animal citizens of Israel, in the form of dehydration, heat stroke, and heat exhaustion. In addition the electrical power grid has been greatly stressed due to the high demand for air-conditioning.
–Pray for a break in the heat wave that will persist.
–Pray for wisdom and for protection upon all those, who are venturing out into the extreme conditions.
–Pray for supernatural protection, cooling, and hydration to be upon the IFD soldiers, border guards and police, who must wear the heavy protective gear in this intense heat.
–Pray that the electricity doesn’t fail or go into a black out.
–Pray against forest and grass fires that can be easily ignited and spread during this kind of persistent heat.
–Pray for the Israel fields and crops … along with her farm animals … to be sustained and protected during this intense time of hot weather.
