Praying for Israel
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
They shall prosper that love thee. (Psalm122:6)
God, our heavenly father, we (I) pray for Israel
1. Father God!
A month later, there will be re-election in Israel on September 17th. We (I) pray that the election will establish a leader who can lead the Israeli government to fear God and to be established according to God's Word. God, please give wisdom to Netanyahu, who is currently prime minister, and hold on to government leaders in various Israeli politics, economics, military, and education to help them to carry out all policies well. Amen.

72 members of Congress of the U.S. (41 U.S. Democrat and 31 Republican) visited Israel, backed by the American Israel Institute of Education (AIEF) and the Israel Public Affairs Commission (ALPAC). They had been to the borders of Lebanon and Syria, to see Iron Dome batteries, the important historical sites in Israel such as Masada, and cultural areas like the Yadbassem Holocaust Memorial Museum. In response to the refusal to tour of anti-Semitic members, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezr, Hoyer of the Democratic delegation said the U.S. Congress passed a bill opposing the BDS movement. And believes in Israel's security. He also said that Democrats, along with Republicans, were working together to help Israel with the same vision. McCarthy, Schneider and several other members of the Republican delegation said it was an opportunity to see not only the importance of U.S.-Israeli relations but also the fact that Israel as a small land nation and a democratic country, is in a special and important position among the Middle East countries. Heavenly Father, I believe that, by this visit, You made 72 U.S. congressmen see and realize exactly the democratic political situation and all the realities of Israel; furthermore, let them confirm Israel’s important position in the Middle East and its important interrelationship with the United States in many ways. Let the three Democrats, who instigated the BDS and led anti-Semitism, realize that they have the wrong idea. Father God, make the United States Congress be with Israel so that the United States can help and support Israel in the future.

Jews remember the destruction of the temple in the last three weeks, prayed and fasted on August 11, the day the temple was destroyed. In the evening of ‘Tisha B’Ab’ Saturday, thousands of young people gathered at a rally in Israel's Independence Park held by the ‘Sovereignty Movement headquarters’, reading Jeremiah and Song of Solomon and marching to Old City. Despite Arab interference, they walked around the wall of Jerusalem to the wall of wailing. Tila Falic Levi said, "We are learning Jewish activity through many Jewish leaders, from our ancestors Abraham to Jonah Netanyahu." Many leaders have declared that the sovereignty of Jerusalem and this land is in Israel. Nowadays, they convey messages proclaiming that both Juda and Samaria are entirely Jewish lands, the cradle of the Jews. They also declare that Jews should put every effort to keep Jerusalem lasting and strong as the eternal and indivisible capital of Jews. Father of God, we (I) proclaim that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, and it belongs to Israel, as well as the holy city of God. I declare and pray that God will build Jerusalem and be praised in the world.

On August 11th, on the day of the destruction of the temple, many Jews climbed into the temple mount and prayed under the protection of the Israeli military police. Especially, the day of August 11th is ‘Eid-El-Ahda’ of the Arab country, the day Abraham dedicated Ishmael to Moriah Mountain; more than 10,000 Arabs climbed the temple mount in the morning, prayed and bowed to the direction for Mecca. They also hurled stones, booed, and interrupted at Jews who climbed the temple mount. In this day and age, Heavenly Father will re-establish the temple in Jerusalem and let us see that the abominable of destruction stood in holy places. We thank that You make Christians understand that you are fulfilling your scripture of Thessalonians Chapter 2; "…For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed and the son of destruction, (verse 3) who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God. (Verse 4) And then, “the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will kill with the breath of his mouth and bring to nothing by the appearance of his coming. (Verse 8).” Heavenly Father! Make us be the awake who prepares for the Lord's time. Let us pray for the peace of Jerusalem with the mission of the perfect watchmen over the walls. We want to completely carry out our precious mission of continuous praying for the peace of Jerusalem until Jehovah God establish Jerusalem to receive praise in the world.

IDF Israeli soldiers arrested two Arab terrorists who killed and abandoned a 19-year-old, Dvir Sorek, a Yeshiva student at their homes in the mountain village of Hebron last Thursday evening. More than 100 Arabs in the city attacked throwing stones, while the soldiers were arresting them. Mr. Netanyahu thanked the soldiers for their efforts to find the bodies of Davir and to arrest the terrorists within 48 hours, saying no terrorists can be tolerated in Israel and their homes will be shattered to disappear from the map. Besides, because of the endless border incursions and terrorism in Gaza, the Israeli government has decided to build a border wall between the city of Cede Roth and Gaza.
6. Father God,
Protect the citizens of Israel from the Arabs who constantly terrorize and attack. Please comfort the parents and families of Dabir, who have lost their sons. Only the Lord is the king of peace. We proclaim the peace in Israel, in the name of Yeshua, the king of the Jews and the king of kings. Only You reign, Yeshua, the King of peace! We pray and praise Yeshua Messiah who gives Shalom to the People of the Lord.

But I will deliver you on that day, declares the Lord, and you shall not be given into the hand of the men of whom you are afraid. For I will surely save you, and you shall not fall by the sword, but shall have your life as a prize of war, because you have put your trust in me, declares the Lord. (Jeremiah 39:17-18)
Father God, I (we) pray for the nations.

The Mecca, Islamic holy place, pilgrimage, the largest religious event in Islam, kicked off in Mecca and Medina, Saudi Arabia, on August 9th. This year's pilgrimage was estimated to be 200,000 more than last year's, with 1.84 million Muslims from around the world and 2.5 million Saudis. The pilgrimage usually takes place for five days. The "highlight" of the pilgrimage is the ritual of throwing stones; sometimes, fatal accidents would happen since too many people flocked to the ritual. Father, more than 2.5 million people are gathered in Mecca and Medina for a pilgrimage to find a way for salvation in vain. During this pilgrimage, let the truth-seeking Muslim souls meet the savior, Jesus Christ, the son of God. Jesus, our Savior, was born of the lineage of Isaac and David by the flesh. By the Spirit, He is the son of God who has risen from the dead. Lord Jesus, take pity on the foolishness of Muslims all over the world, captured by the darkness. There are 1.8 billion Muslims in the world, and here, a huge number of 2.5 million people are moving towards that idol. Lord, let us pray for this land of lies and greed. May the Holy Spirit work so that people may meet God, the Creator in the dreams and reality. Destroy strongholds of Darkness of Islam. Let them know that they cannot be saved by their deeds; perform the miracles of meeting Jesus who is the way, the truth, and the life.

Central Asian countries are accelerating their plans to build 'smart cities' by utilizing China's surveillance technology and massive investment. (13th Asia Today) 'Smart City' refers to 'intelligent cities' that use state-of-the-art ICT (Information Communication Technology) to solve problems in urban life, in traffic, environment, housing, and facility inefficiencies, to help citizens enjoy a convenient and pleasant life. Some worry that building a 'smart city' through Chinese capital and technology may eventually provide China with a surveillance system. In particular, since there have been reports that China has extensively adopted facial recognition technology through Artificial Intelligence (AI) and tracked and controlled Muslim minority Uighurs in the region, there are high levels of caution and concern. Despite the high level of vigilance and concern, Central Asian countries are said to be busy building "smart cities. Father God, people in Central Asian countries only think that they would live in a convenient world by introducing high technology from China. Let them have insight into this era, that of surveillance and oppression of freedom by arrogant people's technology. As the times go to the end, we see surveillance and regime being strengthened. Lord, give to Christians an eye for the discernment of times. May all nations, not only Central Asia, remain awake at this time that is not known when the Lord will come again.

Southeast Asia's ‘Mekong River’ is dying of drought. The Mekong River originates in the highlands of China and is a “milk line” in Southeast Asia, with a total length of 4,400 kilometers, flowing through Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, and Cambodia to Vietnam. The Mekong River, this source of life, has recently dried up rapidly, threatening the lives of its inhabitants. (August 11th, British media, The Times) Thailand's Mekong River water level, downstream of the Mekong River, has decreased by about nine meters to record lows; the Mekong River near the Thai-Laos border has narrowed significantly. The water shortage, caused by the deterioration of the Mekong River water level, has damaged 16,000 square kilometers of rice paddies in Thailand alone which is about 28 times the size of Seoul. What made the situation even more serious is the super-large dams built upstream, especially in China, where China considers the Mekong shared river, not a shared river, and has built more than 10 large dams everywhere, regardless of the downstream countries. China has significantly reduced its discharge when the reserves this year decreased due to reduced rainfall, and in drought-stricken downstream countries, the river bed has dried up altogether. China's Mekong River "transverse" has become an international issue. The United States has openly criticized China's construction of the Mekong dams and its control of water levels, and urged the downstream countries of the Mekong River to join forces with ASEAN and other partners to preserve the benefits of rivers that go to local people. Father God, remember the drought-stricken Mekong River; the inhabitants of the Mekong River are suffering hardships. May this area be fully blessed with the Holy Spirit. Please listen to their groans and stop China's tyranny. Do not let them ask for water from the false gods of Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam, but ask Jehovah God, the true God, take all these problems. Let them know that the source of the water is supplied by the Creator God, so that they may hear the rain and praise the Lord.

Hong Kong's anti-Chinese protests have continued for 10 weeks; with protesters occupying a terminal at Hong Kong's international airport, flights departing from Hong Kong forced to be canceled. (August 12th, South China Morning Post (SCMP)) Protesters peacefully held a silent sit-in at the airport's terminal from 9th to 11th, but in the night of November 11, protesters clashed with police in various parts of the city. After it is said that police shot a pocket bomb to a woman in her right eye causing the possible loss of her sight, excited demonstrators flocked to the airport. Meanwhile, in Shenzhen, China's Guangdong province, adjacent to Hong Kong, the movement of a large number of armored vehicles carrying water cannons on 10th were captured and spread online; that raised concerns that "China's leadership is intervening in the situation in Hong Kong." China's government and state media have pointed out that foreign intervention centered on the U.S. is behind the worsening protests in Hong Kong strongly expressing China’s use of force. The U.S. has expressed strong concern over China's military intervention in Hong Kong and opposes Beijing's involvement. Father God, I ask You to show Your righteousness in the demonstration of Hong Kong citizens by the fear of losing the freedom they have enjoyed so far. Please have mercy on the Xi Jinping government, which is trying to make Hong Kong Chinese. Let the people of Hong Kong realize the importance of freedom through this happening and desire the Lord, who gives freedom from sin, spiritually. May the Hong Kong churches make God the only way to solve this case. Let them have more faith in praying.

Praying for the United States
The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God my Rock,

On Oct. 4-6, at Anaheim Disneyland, “Gay Day” will be held. (August 7th, Christian Today) The latest animated film "Toy Story 4" features a lesbian couple, and the upcoming movie "Frozen 2" is raising concerns amid rumors that the protagonist Elsa will appear as a lesbian. In the United States, a petition has been filed against gay rights at Disneyland around the world. If you set a day for gay people to get together in Disneyland, one of the places children want to go and to keep coming up to your children, children will be accustomed to homosexuality and numb. Also, if children learn homosexuality first through Disney characters that affect children all over the world, it will have serious consequences. God, the heavenly Father, reveal, with the light of truth, the conspiracy to dismantle the unique functions of the family and to use homosexuality in the construction of socialism of own. I beg You to cut off their evil plans so that they will no longer lead to the next generation. Cover children with the precious blood of Jesus Christ so that they do not indiscriminately accept the false truths, unconsciously absorbed to them through the media. Save children from false education quickly. Do not let churches and believers remain silent on all threats that hinder the establishment of the next generation. Let parents and spiritual leaders remember that when we are silent about the activity of evil spirits, the silence is not "gold" but rather "swords", that continuously threaten our children. Let us not forget; if we do not teach our children the biblical view of the world, the world first takes our children to follow the evil of the world.

Unplanned, an anti-abortion film, topped DVD sales in the Amazon drama category. (August 12th, US Christian Post) The film ‘Unplanned’, telling the truth of abortion, which had been pressured to stop producing by mainstream power of Hollywood, is now earning 20 million in the United States. However, advertising applications for this movie are continuously rejected. Michael Scott, CEO of Pure Flex, who produced the film, says he's been praying for this movie. He said in an interview, "If it were in the Obama administration, this kind of film would have been censored and couldn’t be produced. While I was praying for the right time, Lord told me to wait. I received the answer for my prayer starting the production, a week before the U.S. presidential election. He testified that censorship could easily be passed under the Trump administration and that it was God's plan." The United States has passed anti-abortion laws in five states by April 2019, while eight states are preparing anti-abortion laws, with more than 300 currently in place. Thank you, heavenly Father, for anti-abortion atmosphere saving lives in the United States. Thank you for the news that many devotees have been moved by the movie made by the prayer and are renting out the entire theater to show it to many people. We praise Your good plan and guidance. Through the movie, I pray that people can meet Jesus, our Lord, who speaks the truth in love and use the believers who endure and wait patiently. The world uses the media as the evil tool, but, through the people of God, let it be used as a weapon of righteousness; let the miracle of five barley cakes and two fish be proved through this film.

Illinois State, which includes Chicago, has passed a law requiring the history of LGBTQ (LGBTQ is a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and Queer) to be included in public school curricula from next year. The Governor (Democratic Party) has signed a House bill calling for schools to teach LGBTQ history from July 1, 2020. The law states that students should learn about "the roles and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender in the history of the state and the country," which they describe as ensuring a diverse and tolerate history curriculum. He even said that the “life-saving” bill led Illinois to stand on the “right side of history”. Father God, be merciful to the public schools in the United States, including Illinois, which make and educate laws based on the perspective of secularism and humanism, not by the faith and words of God. Have pity on America following the example of this age that is getting darker and darker, not having the fear of God. Let America know Your heart by repenting before God. Rebuke our enemies and destroy their works: seeking to enjoy love and freedom according to the way of the world, educating and acting as right in their opinions, and defiling and darkening the region. Save America, who sins against the Lord with homosexuality.
« In the name of Yeshua Messiah, I (we) prayed for America. Amen.
Praying for South Korea
I will raise up for myself a faithful priest,
he shall do according to what is in my heart and in my mind. And I will build him a sure house, and he shall go in and out before my anointed forever. (1 Samuel 2:35)
Father God, I (we) pray for South Korea.
1. Father God!
On August 15, the 74th anniversary of Korea's liberation from Japan's colonial rule, many churches and Christian groups from home and abroad will open the "Prayer meeting Saving Country." (August 10th Christian Today) Since the beginning of the mission, the Korean Church has maintained its "Saving Country" belief considering the salvation of the individual and the motherland as one, actively engaging in the "independence movement”. I pray for the Republic of Korea, which is facing a crisis, including the recent conflict between South Korea and Japan, the continued nuclear threat from North Korea, the threats of the great powers around the Korean Peninsula, and the flood of homosexuality. Thank you, Father, for allowing the gift of independence to Korea. I praise the Lord, who has brought the Korean Church and all the saints together, realizing that it is time to pray for the nation and its people more than ever. Break all barriers by prayer and may Korean churches at home and abroad dedicated to God, as a mission base for the nation and its people. I believe that none of all things was made without you and that all events are under your sovereignty. Please help us achieve a bloodless, evangelical and peaceful unification of the Korean Peninsula, the true independence of the nation. On this occasion of Liberation day, do not make us lose our freedom again; may Christians repent and pray first in preventing national division and unifying public opinion. Let the Korean Church, which knows the joy of the physical liberation of the land, take the lead on spiritual liberation. Let it preach the gospel for the spirits, who do not know the freedom and live in fear of death, due to the deception of Satan’s lie. May the Church of Korea armed with Gospel be directed to all nations. Harmonize boldness and wisdom in the nation's mission and vision.

With little time left to decide whether to extend the General Security of Military Information
Agreement (GSOMIA) between South Korea and Japan, controversy is brewing over whether to approve or reject the agreement. The new U.S. defense secretary stressed the importance of trilateral security cooperation among South Korea, the U.S., and Japan, and mentioned the need for the Korea-Japan General Security of Military Information Agreement (GSOMIA). However, it was reported that South Korea said it would make a decision based on a comprehensive judgment of various situations because of the poor public opinion of GSOMIA. Heavenly Father, the Lord shall protect the security of this country so that the recent conflict between the two countries does not adversely affect the extension of the alliance of the Three Countries and the Korea-Japan GSOMIA. Let us make the right decision under any circumstances so that the trade dispute between Korea and Japan is negotiated properly. Thus, we could ensure that the bilateral economies and security are not lost and that the relationship between the two countries is restored. Stop fighting for the good of one another with worldly minds. Remember the land of the Republic of Korea; let peace come in the name of only Jesus.

The U.S. national security news agency says a nuclear bomb in Pyongyang could kill 1.5 million people, 6 % of North Korea's total population. According to the report, one of the largest hydrogen bombs in the U.S., B83, would cause all residents within an 11-kilometer radius to burn more than three degrees and the great number of residents would die with 2.3 million casualties in a nuclear bomb attack. Dear Lord, You said, "Are not two sparrows sold in a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father." I confess that nothing in the world can happen without God's permission. North Korea's nuclear development and missile provocations are also under the sovereignty of the Lord. May the LORD control all North Korea's war plans and provocations. Let the churches wake up and pray for the current situation that threatens national security. Let the leaders of South Korea, the U.S., Japan, China, and Russia not use the North's provocation for their national interests or political debate, and let them pool their strength and wisdom to dismantle the North's nuclear weapons program. Let the North realize clearly that it is preoccupied with nuclear and missile development to maintain the three-generation hereditary system, but that it cannot keep them. Do not let the reckless choice of the North Korean regime jeopardize the lives of its 25 million innocent people. Add wisdom to the Korean politicians to break through this crisis. Most of all, let the nation not have an excessive fear of North Korea's military power, but fear only one God.
