Our first line of defense! Use it daily.
The PEN and The VOICE
Both are powerful tools. Use them daily in support of Israel and the Jewish people.
In 2001, Earl Cox began a silent prayer vigil for Israel and the Jewish people near the Holocaust Memorial in his hometown of Charleston, South Carolina. No matter the weather, a group of hardy believers began to gather every Thursday and continues to do so every Thursday from 9 AM to Noon. This group formed the foundation of Cox’s silent prayer vigil at the Western Wall in Jerusalem in 2005 where Christians prayed at the Kotel (Western Wall) in Jerusalem for 365 consecutive days, 8 hours each day, rain or shine, hot or cold.
G-d speaks to us in many ways – through friends, His Word, circumstances, or directly to our hearts and minds. Prayer is a dialogue; not a monologue. Make sure you leave plenty of time to listen to G-d. He will direct your prayers for Israel and the Jewish people. The Shepherd of our souls will lead, guide and direct our path and we will know His voice as sheep know their Shepherd. Moses interceded for the Jewish people as did Nehemiah, Queen Esther and many others. You are joining a long line of history as you pray scriptures from the heart of G-d for His people – the Jews. Remember, the covenant G-d made with Israel is ETERNAL and that means FOREVER!
Genesis 12:1-3 “Now the Lord said to Abram, get out of your country and from your kindred and from your father’s house, to a Land that I will show you: And I will make of you a great nation and I will bless you and make your name great and you shall be a blessing. And I will bless those that bless you and curse those who curse you. In you shall all the families of the earth be blessed.”
Exodus 34:27 “And the Lord said to Moses, “Write these words; in accordance with these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel.”
Joshua 21:43 “Thus the Lord gave to Israel all the Land which He swore to give to their fathers; and having taken possession of it, they settled there.”
1 Kings 4:20 “Judah and Israel were as many as the sand by the sea; they ate and drank and were happy. Solomon ruled over all the kingdoms from the Euphrates to the land of the Philistines and to the border of Egypt.”
Psalms 122:6 “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. May they prosper who love you. Peace be within your walls and security within your towers.”
Amos 9:15 “And I will plant them upon their Land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their Land which I have given them, says the Lord your God.”
Following prayer, what’s the next step? To
educate yourself and others.
Study current events. Become knowledgeable so that you will be able to give information to all who are indifferent or who have been misled into standing against Israel and the Jewish people. Talk with your neighbors, friends, church leaders, prayer groups, elected officials and the media. In fact, if the media fails to inform us, then we must inform the media!
How do you separate fact from fiction?
READ a variety of credible news sources. No not fall into the trap of listening to quick television and radio sound bites and then thinking you have all the facts because you don’t. People have a tendency to believe what they hear on newscasts because ‘if it’s on television it must be true,’ right? Wrong! Many are also misled into thinking they understand the facts because so many news outlets report the same information and when something is repeated often enough we have a tendency to think it is true but no so. Did you know that in America 90% of the media is currently owned and controlled by only 6 corporations (as opposed to 50 back in 1983)?
Six (6) Corporations Control 90% of the Media? Yes.
