Prayer For Israel’s Rain

Heavenly Father, You have promised give Your people their rain in due season so that the land may bring forth its increase. You have promised to send the early and the latter rains and we thank You for Your faithfulness in watering the land of Israel for so many years.

Lord we come again to pray that You would refill us like the Sea of Galilee and pour refreshing rains on the land, so that the rivers will be filled and the land will blossom and bloom and yield its harvest in due season.

Lord as a nation Israel had strayed far from You and has even failed to recognise their Saviour and King - and yet You have not forgotten Your own chosen people and have continued to bless them, despite their unbelief and blindness to the truth of the glorious gospel of Christ. Father we pray for Israel, that You would send an abundance of rain to fill up the depleted reservoirs of water.

Water Your land and bless Your people, Israel we pray and we pray that many may come to recognise the Lord Jesus as their God and Saviour, in Whose name we pray,

Amen
