Discussion on Praying for the Jewish people

large-jewish-star

 

Today’s prayer prompt can be found here Pray for Jews for Jesus. The concept of the messiah is a Jewish concept that most Jewish people have passed by. The Jews rejected their own messiah and were the very ones that sent Him to the cross. Most Jewish people today continue to reject Jesus as the messiah. How do we continue to effectively preach the gospel to them? Have we as a church body failed to reach out to the Jewish people to the message of messiah? Why do you think most Christians don’t make it a priority to pray for Israel and the Jewish people? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.

  2. I’ve prayed for Israel and the Jewish people for some time now. It seems they need our prayers even more so now with all that’s going on in the Middle East.

  3. Thank you for prompting this prayer. I have a dear Jewish friend who recently accepted Christ. Our friendship serves to ignite my passion to pray for the apple of God’s eye.

    All interesting questions. With recent events involving Israel, I have been giving Israel a lot of thought. I believe that God is working in the lives of His chosen people. And that He has never stopped. How we as Americans fit into the picture is a constant debate, but the scriptures are clear that God would deliver His people.

    As believers we are to pray for one another, encourage one another, and carry each others burdens, but sadly that is often quite challenging for many of us. I know that there is a movement to pray for Israel, but I believe that God will rescue His people..God is in control. I don’t believe Christians have failed to pass on the message of Christ. Acts. 16:6-7 tells that…

    “Now when they had gone through Phrygia and the region of Galatia, they were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia. After they had come to Mysia, they tried to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit did not permit them.”

    It is the Spirit of God that compels and forbids us to do anything in His name.

    As for Christians not making it a priority to pray for Israel and the Jewish people, well…honestly, I don’t believe Christians are as informed as they should be…when it comes to Israel, and that comes from not reading the scriptures. They go to church, they hear a good message, say their amen’s, leave their offering and exit as quickly as possible to avoid the traffic. It’s a bit cynical, but it’s a sad truth. I know people that praise Jesus and never pick up a bible to read His word.

    I for one, believe that God is calling His people out…we need to heed to His voice. Be blessed.

    • What a great thought, thank you so much for sharing with everyone. We as believers need to educate other believers about Israel and the Jewish people. We are the hands and feet of Jesus!!! God bless you!

    I had this scripture in mind. As I read through Jeremiah, it is quite clear that God constantly warned His people about their refusal to heed His warnings. But God also said in…Jeremiah 32: 40-42
    “I will make an everlasting covenant with them: I will never stop doing good to them, and I will inspire them to fear me, so that they will never turn away from me. I will rejoice in doing them good and will assuredly plant them in this land with all my heart and soul. “This is what the Lord says: As I have brought all this great calamity on this people, so I will give them all the prosperity I have promised them.

    God loves His people. Period. And it is reassuring to know that He will take care of them.

    Jeremiah 32: 30-38 “The people of Israel and Judah have done nothing but evil in my sight from their youth; indeed, the people of Israel have done nothing but arouse my anger with what their hands have made, declares the Lord. From the day it was built until now, this city has so aroused my anger and wrath that I must remove it from my sight. The people of Israel and Judah have provoked me by all the evil they have done—they, their kings and officials, their priests and prophets, the people of Judah and those living in Jerusalem. They turned their backs to me and not their faces; though I taught them again and again, they would not listen or respond to discipline. They set up their vile images in the house that bears my Name and defiled it. They built high places for Baal in the Valley of Ben Hinnom to sacrifice their sons and daughters to Molek, though I never commanded—nor did it enter my mind—that they should do such a detestable thing and so make Judah sin.

    “You are saying about this city, ‘By the sword, famine and plague it will be given into the hands of the king of Babylon’; but this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: I will surely gather them from all the lands where I banish them in my furious anger and great wrath; I will bring them back to this place and let them live in safety.

    They will be my people, and I will be their God. Amen.

    Rich Mullins said it beautifully..Why do the nation rage?

    Ps. 2: 1-4…well the whole psalm..really.
    Why do the nations rage, And the peoples meditate a vain thing?
    The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against Jehovah, and against his anointed, saying,
    Let us break their bonds asunder, And cast away their cords from us.
    He that sitteth in the heavens will laugh: The Lord will have them in derision.

  6. IrmMa, this is so good. God has made a covenant with His people Israel. It is everlasting, and He will again bring them back to Himself. This is also a great truth for all people. Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. Even though we may get off the course He is always there with open arms for complete restoration of fellowship. We never are not God’s sons and daughters after we have placed complete faith and trust in Jesus.

    Thank you so much for your valuable contribution to this forum. We pray many others will do so.
