“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.” –Psalm 122:6
America stands at an unprecedented point in American-Israeli relations. The current White House administration’s handling of both the Iranian nuclear threat and undermining of Israeli foreign relations continues to destabilize the Middle East and threaten the safety of both Israel and America. What can be done to help?
We want to encourage you to stand firm both in your Christian faith and in support of Israel. Here are three things you can do today:
- Pray: Ask for God’s intervention regarding the visit of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, and for America’s political leaders to positively respect and respond to his message.
- Contact your Congressman and express your support for Israel.
- Take time to learn more about the biblical, historical, and contemporary importance of Israel. To help, we’re offering free online access to four popular television programs and one e-book related to the Bible’s teachings about Israel.
- Forward this email to your family and friends to encourage prayer and support for Israel during this important time.

God’s Heart for Israel and Us (e-book) by Dr. John Weldon
We read God’s promises to Israel in the Old Testament, where it is referred to as “the apple of His eye, but is God done with Israel since they rejected their Messiah? Are we, as Christians, supposed to stand for the nation of Israel today? Has the Church now replaced Israel, so that God’s promises and covenants given in the OT no longer apply to Israel? What is Israel’s global importance? Is global anti-Semitism on the rise? What will be Israel’s ultimate future?
Stand with us as we pray for the “peace of Jerusalem,” the nation of Israel, and the future of Israel and the United States.
