Isaiah 62 Prayer Letter - January 29th, 2020 - Week Four

Dear prayer partners,

Thank you for joining us throughout the whole month of January to seek the Lord together in prayer and fasting. We have much to pray and intercede for in this last week of January.

The International Holocaust Remembrance Day is on the 27th of January, and on this day the world will take a moment to remember this horrific atrocity in world history. Some will even search their own hearts and ask, “How is it possible that mankind can be so evil and murder six million Jews?” Others may ask, “How can we make sure that such a genocide will never happen again?”

The fact is unless we invite God to search and reveal the motives of our hearts, we can easily be deceived by our sinful flesh. The Word of God teaches us that good and evil flows from the human heart. “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil.” (Luke 6:45)

Therefore, just as Paul encouraged the Corinthians to examine their hearts before taking the Lord’s Supper (1 Corinthians 11:17-34), I want to encourage you to take a moment and examine your heart before we intercede for Israel. I believe it is important that we come into God’s presence with a clean and pure heart, one that is ready to pray and intercede for the things on God’s heart.

I believe that we should especially pray for the Holocaust survivors. Many of them are living with broken hearts, because of the memories, trauma and suffering that continually plays over and over again in their minds. We should pray that God will heal their broken hearts. “He heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds.” (Psalm 147:3)

Let us also continue to pray for the Israeli elections, because we need a breakthrough. Pray that God will put His purposes and plans in the hearts of those that will participate in the elections. Revelation 17:17 says, “For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose…” Pray for God to direct the plans of the leaders of Israel. “A man’s heart plans His way, but the Lord directs his steps.” (Proverbs 16:9)

To conclude, may we all find the presence of God as we intercede this week with a heart that is longing and searching for God’s will. Jeremiah 29:13-14 says, “’And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you,’ says the Lord.”

We look forward to all of us seeking the Lord together in prayer!!

Shalom from Jerusalem,
