Pray for Israel

Pray those who oppose the gospel and deny the Jewish identity of Messianic believers may ultimately cause even more Jews to come to faith.

Pray that Reform and Conservative Jews will understand that God has revealed Himself through His Son, Jesus Christ. (Hebrews 1:1,2)

Ask God to give believers in Israel the same boldness that caused Peter to proclaim to his Jewish brothers, "We ought to obey God rather than men." (Acts 5:29).
