Because I love Zion, I will not keep still. Because my heart yearns for Jerusalem, I cannot remain silent. I will not stop praying for her until her righteousness shines like the dawn, and her salvation blazes like a burning torch.
There is so much misinformation and propaganda surrounding the issue of Israel, it can at times be difficult to know what to pray for. Focus on Israel has created a ‘Prayer Wheel’ with some important subjects to help you cut through the distractions and focus on the areas that we believe are close to God’s heart.
They include issues like - Peace, unity, protection, reconciliation, justice, righteousness, salvation & forgiveness.
The Apostle Paul reminds us that when praying we must be conscious that we are contesting against spritual powers and not just physical ones who would seek to frustrate the purposes of God. History has shown us that a great part of their attention has been on stirring up hatred against the Jewish people, this is because God’s ongoing love and eternal purposes include the people of Israel and the land. So praying for Israel is ultimately about praying for the fulfilment of His purposes as opposed to political dominance.
We really appreciate your partnership with us through your continued prayers, please remember; your prayers matter and can make a difference. Please consider organising a group prayer in your area.
Dear friends, my greatest wish and my prayer to God is for the people of Israel to be saved. Romans 10:1
The apostle Paul reminds us in both the books of Romans and Ephesians of the importance of praying for one another and the people of Israel. It can be difficult to know exactly who and what to pray for. Focus on Israel has created a second ‘Prayer Wheel’, and this time we will be focussing on some of the different ministries that we support and work alongside in the land.

This is an amazing congregation that exists about one mile from Gaza. The heart of their ministry is to actively serve the local community through social care and welfare. For them, this is displaying the love of Yeshua for Jewish people in a way that matters and is life transforming. Please pray for their protection, as they often find opposition from the Ultra Orthodox as well as living in a town that regularly faces rockets from Gaza.
The Alliance Church, is based in the Old City, in the heart of Jerusalem. It is a growing and energetic congregation of Arab-speaking believers who are having a great impact on their local community.
They can often find themselves facing opposition from the Muslim Quarter and the Orthodox Church, because of their outreach work.
Please pray for all who belong to this congregation and the Lord's protection over their families.
