Why Pray for Israel?Learn the Prayer for the State of Israel

Why Pray for Israel?

Many of the faithful ask, "Why pray for Israel?", The answer to the question is multilayered. Why pray for Israel? First and foremost because human souls are suffering, struggling and fighting to thrive there amidst physical, political and spiritual warfare. Why pray for Israel? You should pray for Israel because God commands our support and aid of Israel throughout the Bible. We hope that you will join us in prayer for the State of Israel.

Our Father in Heaven, Protector and Redeemer of Israel, bless the State of Israel, the first flowering of our redemption. Shield it beneath the wings of Your love and spread over it Your canopy of peace. Send Your light and truth to its leaders, officers, and counselors, and direct them with Your good counsel.

Strengthen the defenders of our Holy Land; O God, grant them salvation and crown them with victory. Establish peace in the land and everlasting joy for its inhabitants.

Remember our brethren, the whole house of Israel, in all the lands of their dispersion. Speedily bring them upright to Zion, Your city, to Jerusalem, Your name's dwelling-place, as it is written in the Torah of Your servant Moses: "Even if your outcasts are dispersed to the uttermost parts of the heavens, from there HASHEM your God will gather you and take you in. HASHEM your God will bring you into the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it, and He shall make you more prosperous and numerous than your forefathers.

Unite our hearts to love and revere Your Name, and to observe all the precepts of Your Torah. Speedily send us Your righteous messiah of the house of David to redeem those who long for Your salvation.

Shine forth Your glorious majesty over all the inhabitants of Your world; let every creature that breathes proclaim: "HASHEM, God of Israel, is King; His dominion rules over all." Amen. Selah.
