Day 6 of 40 Days of Prayer for America Oct 3, 2012

Target: Israel

Psalm 25:22 “Redeem Israel, O God, Out of all their troubles!”

Abigail Adams, the wife of one American President and the mother of another, knew the omnipotent power of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob:
“The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but the God of Israel is He that giveth strength and power unto His people. Trust in Him at all times, ye people; pour out your hearts before Him; God is a refuge for us.”

Prayer:
Jehovah God, You alone are able to protect Israel from the enemies that constantly surround her on every side, attacking from every angle. Open the eyes of her adversaries, that they might be able to clearly see that Israel is the apple of Your eye, a holy city created by Your divine hand. Lord, we know that Israel resides under the shadow of the Almighty. May our nation come to be the strong earthly support that she needs in her darkest hour. May we not forsake Jerusalem and instead begin the daily ritual of praying for her peace, as Your word commands. Let the world know that there is no God like Jehovah and You have not forgotten Your people. For He who keepeth Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps. Amen.
