Prayer Calendar June-July 2024 – Now Available

editor - 6 June 2024

Dear praying friends,

‘Again the word of the LORD Almighty came to me. This is what the LORD Almighty says: “I am very jealous for Zion; I am burning with jealousy for her.” This is what the LORD says: “I will return to Zion and dwell in Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the City of Truth, and the mountain of the LORD Almighty will be called the Holy Mountain.”’ (Zechariah 8:1-3, NIV1984)

We live in a time of division and confusion. Which story should I believe? Which facts can I accept? What is true and what is false? Yet this is the time when we must continue to remember what God has spoken. God’s Word is the key in times of confusion. Jesus says, “I am the way, the truth and the life.” It is as if Jesus knew that there would be times when people would ask themselves: Where should we go? What is true? What are we living for? Jesus’ words are not a warning, but a beacon of hope in confusing times.

God calls Jerusalem the ‘City of Truth’. This is not without reason. At a time when everyone seems to have an opinion about Israel and where whole truths are being twisted into half-truths, God’s defining Word speaks of Jerusalem as the ‘City of Truth’. We see that hatred of Israel brings unrest and division. But love for Israel does not. Rather, it brings peace and confidence. The peace that we can focus on God’s Word and trust that His Word is true.

Let us pray in the coming months that the truth about Israel may shine stronger than the lies. Let us remember that God will provide and that we can trust in His Word.

Shalom, The Christians for Israel Prayer Team
