Here is a good word of thanksgiving and direction: from Peg Byars of Return Ministries, Ontario:
"CAN ANYONE SAY 'PRAISE THE LORD'!!!
LET US PRAISE AND THANK GOD THAT WE LIVE IN A NATION WHOSE LEADERSHIP ACKNOWLEGES, BOLDLY SUPPORTS, AND BLESSES GOD’S COVENANT PEOPLE AND LAND AND EVEN ENCOURAGES THEM TO MAKE ALIYAH!!!
(Emphasis in statement mine!!!!!)
TOGETHER – let’s pray Colossians 1:9-12 over our Prime Minister Stephen Harper:
“For this reason we also, since the day we heard it (your statement, Mr. Prime Minister), do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy, giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us (you) to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light . . .”
Can you imagine what God can do in, with and through a nation who acknowledges that God is Lord! (Psalm 33:12)
Press in, saints. The Lord God is calling His remnant in Canada to a position of responsibility regarding Israel. We live amongst nations who have lost their spiritual compass. Let us awake, rise up and be willing volunteers in the day of His power (Psalm 110:3).
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and all Israel, for God to throw confusion into any plans the enemy has to harm His covenant people or His covenant land. Pray Colossians 1:9-12 over Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and ask God to equip and strengthen the security forces within Israel as God, who never slumbers nor sleeps, watches over Israel and turns the enemy back at the gates."
