Watchmen’s PrayersPage 1
To all who love the Lord Yeshua HaMashiach, Who is the “Light of Zion” – in Hebrew OR TZION – and His servant Jacob, Israel His chosen Heritage: A request for your prayer vigilThe month of “Tammuz” in the Jewish Calendar is under the cover and authority of a Babylonian idol, a very mighty spirit of the underworld, one of Satan’s main generals. Those of us who are in Messiah have nothing to fear of Him for “all authority has been given to us over ALL of the power of the enemy.” BUT — not all Israel is yet under the authority of Yeshua. Therefore the responsibility to stand in the gap and make up the breach is upon our shoulders!
To stand in the gap and make up the breach
On behalf of the people and nation of Israel.
G-d commanded His people in Exodus 23:13 “you shall not make mention of the NAMES of other gods, nor let such be HEARD out of your mouth.” Yet every year when THIS month which is now on our calendar comes around again the name of that “god” is mentioned and heard for every day of that month. The name of this idol is “Tammuz.”t The 4th month of the Babylonian Calendar was named after him, and his cult was characertized by ritual offerings, lamentations and weepings. In Egypt he was known as “Osiris,” and in Greece as “Adonis.”
His cult claims that he was a Sumerian shepherd and ruler who married the goddess “Ishtar.” Without going into all the myths surrounding this “goddess,” let it suffice that the Scriptures refer to her as the one who was worshiped by the idolatrous Israelites as “Queen of heaven.”1 She was also known by the names of “Astarte,” “Isis,” and in the West as the Greek “Artemis” (goddess of war and fertility: the great Artemis of Ephesus) or/and “Aphrodite” (goddess of love and beauty) and the Roman “Venus.” She was later “Christianized” by the Roman Christian State religion and her title “Queen of heaven” was conferred upon Yeshua’s mother Miriam.
G-d both loathed the cult of Tammuz as well as that of Ishtar, and in hot jealousy and wrath He punished His people for their idolatry. The cult of Tammuz especially is a satanic counterfeit of the person and sacrificial life of the Son of G-d, Yeshua the Messiah. The Tammuz cult incorporated festivals of his death (funeral offerings with lamentation and weeping) and resurrection (offerings of every sort of vegetation).
Hence, every year for one month the name of this idol and of his associate, Ishtar, literally “rule” over Israel, over the Jewish people. Why they ever adopted this name to “head” this month in our Calendar I do not know. But I DO know that the worst, most terrible disasters that ever befell our people occurred during that month, usually culminating in the worst of atrocity or edict on the 9th of Av. That is the date on which both temples were destroyed, Crusades were declared, the edict of the Spanish Inquisition was ratified and many other horrors planned, proclaimed and carried out.
The Lord brought it to my attention – strangely enough – by the “prophecy” of a false prophet, false because he prophesied from bitterness and vindictiveness, speaking only words of vengeance and wrath against Israel for and in a time that is still set apart for Israel’s redemption. And the Lord explained to me that this demon of hell by the name of Tammuz “rules” over the Jewish people during that month. The presence of this principality appears like a huge dark blanket hovering over Israel, attempting to block the light and protective shield of our G-d, the Holy One of Israel. This principality works nearly unimpeded, intent on utterly destroying the nation of Israel.
BUT — the Lord explained further that much of this demon’s effect could be minimized if we, who are the children of light, stand in the gap and make up the breach. Once again He instructed me to wear sackcloth for the duration of this time, which was from the 8th of July through the 29th, and to fast as I am able2.
When I pray I put earth upon my head (instead of ashes), something you may not be required to do, but was enjoined on me. If you feel led to do the same thing, by all means, do. It has NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with legalism, but with an outward sign and statement of total repentance, of total grieving over sins, with a total humbling of the flesh, of the MORTAL nature before an Almighty G-d. As intercessors we do this in proxy for the ones on behalf of whom we intercede, as in this case for Israel.
When I pray I pray ONLY THE WORD. For as long as the Spirit of G-d remains on me for this purpose I VOICE the WORD! I do not pray my own ideas and thoughts or feelings, but only as the Lord leads me, from Scripture to Scripture, I pray, I VOICE His Word.
I have 3 reasons why I pray that way:
1) His Word shall not return void but accomplish that for which it was purposed and prosper in the thing for which it was sent3;
2) G-d’s angels, His mighty ones who DO His WORD, who HEARKEN to the VOICE of His WORD are His ministers that do His will4;
3) Because I know that if we ask ANYTHING according to HIS will He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have OBTAINED the requests made of Him5.
G-d’s word is His expressed will. And I post this letter especially to all intercessors who have the interests of our Lord at heart, who pray by His Spirit and not according to their own mind and imagination. Personal “feelings” have no place in intercession, only the will and purpose of the Father. Therefore we ponder the state of affairs at the particular time, lamenting and weeping in “sackcloth and ashes,” in proxy for the sins of Israel, the Jewish people. We stand in the gap in the mighty Name of Yeshua, repenting and humbling ourselves, making up the breach with the power of Yeshua’s cross and blood.
G-d wants to be reminded continuously of the oath He swore by His own Name and of all of His good promises, that He may perform them6.
What follows is an example of how to pray the Word on behalf of Israel. Please, let no “personal rational” enter in! Do not pray according to what YOU think is right. Pray only as the Holy Spirit leads and prompts. Bear in mind that G-d does not wish that any man should perish7 but, at the same token, He also has prepared certain men as vessels unto destruction. It is not up to us to judge what the Potter does with the clay. He forms this and that vessel for honorable use and another for dishonorable; some for sacred use, and others for destruction8. He does what HE wills and He does it according to HIS knowledge, wisdom and understanding, and not according to ours9.
Therefore, when the Spirit leads you to Scriptures of judgment and destruction upon Israel’s enemies, which are also G-d’s enemies because they openly defy His oath, His election and covenant, then don’t let thoughts of mercy cause you to skip these prayers. There is no mercy decreed for Amalek10, and judgments are already sealed on His enemies, including those mentioned in Psalm 83. These are judgments SEALED, meaning, no amount of prayer can nor is intended to reverse them11. So, just follow His leading and not your own understanding.
On the other hand, always bear in mind to remind the Lord that He is the righteous Judge of all the earth, and that surely those who love peace and hate evil should not be made to share in G-d’s judgment upon the unrepentant evil and wicked12. So, regardless among which people, nation, tribe and tongue they live, implore the Lord to spare those who hate evil and love peace, who embrace goodness and deal righteously. And He will do it and in the end will bring them also in His salvation.
So, here are some examples how I pray:
1 Jeremiah 7:18; 44:17-19, 25 3 Isa. 55:11 4 Ps 103:20-21 5 1Jn 5:14-15 6 Isa.62:6-7; 1 Ki 8:56; Ps 105:42 7 2 Peter 3:9 8 Jeremiah 18:2-4; Romans 9:20-23; Isaiah 29:16; 45:9; 9 Ps 135:6; Da 4:35 10Ex 17:14,16;De 25:17-19 11 Jer.18:7-10 12 Gen. 18:23-25

Ps 67:1-3 “O Lord, heavenly Father, be gracious to your people Israel and bless them, make your Face to shine upon the descendants of Jacob, that YOUR way be known upon earth, YOUR saving power among all nations.”
Ps 68:1-4 “Arise, O Lord our G-d, let Your enemies be scattered; let those who hate You flee before You! As smoke is driven away, so drive them away; as wax melts before fire, let the [unrepentant] wicked perish before You. But let the righteous be joyful; let them exult before You; let them be jubilant with joy!”
5-6 “Heavenly Father, from Your holy habitation be a Father to those among your people who were made fatherless by terrorists, and be a protector of the women who were made widows by acts of terrorism. Give the desolate a home to dwell in and lead the prisoners out to prosperity; but make the rebellious dwell in a parched land.”
7-10 “Go out before Your people, let the earth quake and the heavens pour down rain at Your Presence [among your people Israel]. Shed abroad rain in abundance, O our G-d, and restore your heritage that was languishing and to which you returned the flock of your people to dwell in. In Your goodness, O G-d, provide for the needy among your people.”
19-23 “Blessed are You, O Lord, who daily bears up your people Israel; You alone are their salvation. You, Holy One of Israel, are a G-d of salvation, and to you, the Lord our G-d, belongs escape from death.”
“But shatter the heads of Your enemies, even the hairy crown of him who walks in defiance of you in his guilty ways. You said, that you will bring your people back from Bashan, You will bring them back even from the depths of the sea that they may bathe their feet in blood, that the tongues of their dogs may have their portion from the foe.”
32-35 “Then the kingdoms of the earth shall sing to you, they shall sing praises to You, O Lord, to You Who rides in the heavens, the ancient heavens, and lo, You send forth your VOICE, Your MIGHTY VOICE. [Let the peoples] ascribe power to You, our G-d whose power is in the skies, and let Your majesty be over Israel. Terrible are You in Your Sanctuary, O Holy One of Israel, give power and strength to Your people.”
Ps 6:1-10 “ O L-RD, do not rebuke [the children of] Jacob in your anger, nor chasten [the offspring of] Israel in your wrath. Be gracious to your people, O L-RD, for [the sheep of your pasture] are languishing; O L-RD, heal them, for their bones are troubled. Your people’s soul also is sorely troubled. But You, O L-RD – how long [must your people languish for your salvation, and endure the hatred and violence of our neighbors round about]? TURN, O L-RD, SAVE YOUR PEOPLE’S LIFE; deliver the children of Israel for the sake of YOUR steadfast love. For in death there is no remembrance of you; in Sheol who can give You praise?”
“Israel is weary from all the mourning and moaning; every night many flood their bed with tears; they drench their couch with their weeping. Your people’s eye wastes away because of grief, it grows weak because of all their foes.”
“O Father, make all the workers of evil (like the PLO and PA, Hamas, Hizbullah, Islamic Yihad, Islamic Brotherhood, and what all their names are, including those among our people such as Shimon Peres, Yossi Beilin, Yossi Sarid, Ben Ami and ALL the violators of your sworn covenant) depart from Israel; but You, O L-RD, hear the sound of our [my] weeping. Hear, O L-RD, our [my] supplication; Father, accept our [my] prayer, in Yeshua’s Name.”
“Let all of Israel’s enemies [Your enemies, Father] be ashamed and sorely troubled; turn them back, and put them to shame in a moment.”
Ps 9:1- 20 “We will give thanks to You, O L-RD, with our whole heart; we will tell of all Your wonderful deeds. We will be glad and exult in You, and will sing praise to Your Name, O Most High. Turn your people’s enemies, YOUR enemies, back and cause them to stumble and perish before You. Maintain the just cause of your people, for it was and is You, O L-RD our G-d who founded Zion for the afflicted of Your people to find refuge there from the Nazi Holocaust13, You who sits on His throne giving righteous judgments. Rebuke the goyim, destroy the unrepentant wicked, blot out their name forever and ever. Make your enemy vanish in everlasting ruins; uproot their cities and make the very memory of them perish.”
“But You, O L-RD, be a stronghold for your nation who is being oppressed [and for all the oppressed of the earth who will turn in hope to you], be a stronghold in times of troubles [such as now in this time of constant terrorism]. And those among us who know Your Name put our trust in You, for You, O L-RD, do not forsake those who seek You. Your people shall sing praises to You, O L-RD who dwells in Zion, and tell your deeds among the peoples, for Israel is a nation of witnesses, and to witness of You and Your salvation is Israel’s destiny. For You who avenges blood is mindful of the innocent blood shed; do not forget the cry of the afflicted!”
“Be gracious to your servant Jacob, O L-RD! Behold, what Israel your servant suffers from those who hate him. Lift up your people from the gates of death, that they may recount all your praises, and in the gates of the daughter of Zion rejoice in your deliverance.”
“Let the nations sink in the pit which they have made for your people Israel; and in the net which they are hiding for the sheep of your flock let their own foot get caught. Make Yourself known O L-RD, that You execute judgment; let the unrepentant wicked be snared in the work of their own hands. They shall depart to Sheol, even all the nations that forget you, O Lord. For the needy shall not always be forgotten, and the hope of the poor shall not perish forever.”
“ARISE, O L-RD! LET NOT ENOSH14 PREVAIL; let the nations be judged before You! Put them in fear, O L-RD! Let the GOYIM [nations, Gentiles] know that they are but ENOSH!”
13 Isaiah 14:32
Watchmen set over IsraelPage 3
There are, however, many other prayers in a totally different tone and spirit. The Lord will lead also to these, each day to different prayers. For example:
Isaiah 41:8-16 “But now, O L-RD, remember Israel, Your servant, Jacob, whom You have chosen, the offspring of Abraham, Your friend, whom you took from the ends of the earth and called from its farthest corners, remember what you swore:
“For Israel is Your servant whom you have chosen and not cast off. Make Israel not to fear, because you are with him; let Israel not be dismayed, because you are his G-d. Strengthen your people, Heavenly Father, and help them, in Yeshua’s Name. Uphold them with Your victorious right hand.”
“Put all who are incensed against Your people to shame and confound them; make those who strive against Israel as nothing and cause them to perish. Then your people shall seek those who contend with them, but shall not find them; for those who war against Israel shall be as nothing at all. For You, O L-RD, our G-d [the Holy One of Israel, the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the G-d of Joseph, and Moses and all the prophets, the G-d of king David your servant, the G-d of Yeshua, Your Son, our Savior, Lord and King] hold Israel’s right hand; it is You who says to Israel, “Fear not, I will help you.”
“Therefore, though the offspring of Jacob behaves before Your enemies, O L-RD, like a worm in the dust, make the men of Israel fearless. Help them, for You alone are their Redeemer, You, the Holy One of Israel. Behold, make of your nation a threshing instrument [sledge], new, sharp, and having teeth; make them thresh the mountains of lies and worldly powers, and of the hills of man’s religious traditions and idolatries let them make chaff; let your people winnow them and your wind carry them away, and your tempest scatter them. But Jacob shall rejoice in You, O L-RD, and in the Holy One of Israel shall all your people [both from among the Jews and the Gentiles] glory.”
Isaiah 43:1-3, 25 “It is You, O L-RD, Who created Jacob, who formed Israel your servant. Fill your people with fearlessness, for you HAVE REDEEMED them; you have called them by name, they are yours. Therefore, when they pass through the waters be with them; when they pass through the rivers, let them not overwhelm your people. Even when they walk through the fire it shall not burn them and the flame shall not consume them. For You are the L-RD their G-d, the Holy One of Israel, their Savior. Blot out the transgressions of Your people, O L-RD, FOR YOUR OWN SAKE, and do not remember their sins anymore…”
Isaiah 44:3-5 “Pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground [in Israel]. Pour out Your Spirit, Heavenly Father, upon Jacob’s descendants, and Your blessing upon the offspring of Israel. Make them spring up like grass amid waters, like willows by flowing streams. Then this one will say, ‘I am the Lord’s,’ and another will call himself by the name of Jacob, and another will write on his hand, ‘The L-RD’S,’ and surname himself by the name of Israel.”
Isaiah 51:3 “In Yeshua’s Name, Father, comfort Zion, comfort all her waste places, and make her midbar [wilderness] like Eden, and her Arava [desert] like the Garden of the L-RD; let joy and gladness be found in her, thanksgiving and the voice of song.”
Isaiah 35:3-7 “Strengthen the weak hands and make firm the feeble knees, make strong the fearful of heart. Come with your vengeance and with your recompense, come and save your people. Open the [literally blind] eyes and those that seeing did not see; unstop the [literally deaf] ears and those who hearing did not hear; make the lame man leap like a heart, and the tongue of the dumb sing for joy. Let waters break forth in the wilderness [midbar], and streams in the desert [Arava]; make the burning sand become a pool, and the thirsty grounds springs of water…” etc.
Isaiah 54:9-10 “Remember now, O L-RD, that this is like the days of Noah to you: for as you swore that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth so YOU HAVE SWORN that you will not be angry with the descendants of Jacob and not rebuke the offspring of Israel. For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but Your steadfast love shall not depart from Jacob, and your covenant of peace shall not be removed from Israel, because of your compassion for them.”
Furthermore, you may want to pray against the Mitchell report according to the words of Isaiah 54:1-3, etc. etc. Also, do not forget to pray what is promised in Ezekiel, especially in chapters 36, 37, and end of 39, as well as His Word AGAINST Gog and Magog. Pray at all times that He will not deal anymore with Israel as He did formerly but rather according to all His good promises, for HIS OWN SAKE, for His HOLY NAME’S sake, and for the sake of HIS OATH and Covenant. Then all the peoples round about and far off will know that He alone is L-RD and that there is no other G-d, and that He alone is Savior, the God of all the earth. Let Him lead you to the good promises for Israel; and the sealed judgments upon Israel’s enemies you find written in Ezekiel 25, 35 and 36; in Isaiah 14, Jeremiah 47, Joel 3, Amos 1 and Zephaniah 2. Pray part of Zechariah 12 and Daniel’s prayer in chapter 9.
There is no limit to these type of prayers, since G-d’s Word covers every situation and circumstance of life on earth, for both mankind and animals. Bear in mind that there are judgments which still can be reversed, and others which are nonreversible. Don’t imagine that you can change these, but ever and always remind the Lord of His good promises that He may protect, defend and save His people. For now is the time to have pity on Zion, to show her His favor and save her.
May the Holy Spirit lead you how to pray and what to pray, making intercession and petitioning our Heavenly Father on behalf of Israel’s safety, protection and salvation. May the intercessors set as watchmen over Israel persevere in unceasing prayers, and during the month of Tammuz enter into a total fast, if able, or at least for as long as possible. It is the most dangerous time of the year.
G-d bless all of you for your faithfulness and reward you with your inheritance in His Kingdom.

Additional Scriptures for praying andPSALM 10:
VOICING the Word of G-d on behalf of Israel.
1 Why do You stand far off, O LORD? Why do You hide Yourself from Israel in times of trouble, during this Intifada of more than 3 years??
2 In arrogance the [unrepentent] wicked like Hamas, Hisbullah, Islamic Jihad, Fatah, PLO, and the men of power and greed hotly pursue your people so small in number: let all who plot against your People, O LORD, be caught in the schemes which they have devised.
3 For daily, Father, we can hear these wicked boast on TV world news of the desires of their heart, and those greedy for gain curse and renounce You, O LORD.
4 In the pride of their countenance the wicked do not seek You, Father: all their thoughts are, “There is no God.”
5 Their ways are always grievous, yet they prosper at all times; because Your judgments are on high, out of their sight, they puff at You and at Israel, whom they regard as their enemies.
6 Father, they have all deluded themselves and think in their heart, “We shall not be moved: for we shall never be in adversity.”
7 Consider, Father, how their mouths is filled with cursing and deceit, oppression and fraud: under their tongue is mischief and vanity.
8 Palestinian terrorists sit in ambush in the villages: from their hiding places they murder the innocent [like the two boys in that cave a few 100 meters from their home]: their eyes stealthily watch for the defenseless civilians, the hapless child, youth or elderly.
9 Along the roads and highways they lie in wait secretly, as a lion in his den: they lie in wait for your people to catch them defenseless: they wait to seize Your poor nation by drawing her into the net of international involvement, by drawing her into negotiations in which they can catch the children of Jacob.
10 Look how Arafat croucheth among the Arab League members, and “humbles” himself to the world leaders, that the small nation of Israel may fall by these strong ones.
11 For Lord, he has said in his heart, “G-d has forgotten [His people]: He has hidden His face [from them]; He will never see [what we are doing to them and what our plans are]”.
12 Arise, O LORD; O G-d, lift up Your hand: forget not the affliction of your people!
13 Why do the wicked renounce You, O LORD, and say in their heart, that You will not call to account?
14 But You HAVE seen it; yes, Father, do take note of trouble and vexation, mischief and spite, and take it into Your hand: for we commit your oppressed nation to You, Father, and pray that You help the families who lost the father or mother, the child, the bridegroom or bride.
15 Break the arm of the scheming and plotting, unrepentant wicked and of the evil ones: seek out their wickedness till You find none.
16 But You, LORD, be King over Israel and all the earth for ever and ever: cause the Gentile nations to perish out of Your land.
17 O LORD, Heavenly Father, in Yeshua’s Name hear the desire of Your intercessors, of the meek among Your people: prepare and strengthen the heart of Your people Israel [to receive Your salvation], and cause Your ear to hear our prayers and supplications:
18 Do justice for the ones made fatherless by the terrorists and for the oppressed nation, that the men of the earth [who are but ENOSH=human flesh void of the Spirit of G-d] may strike terror no more nor oppress ever again.
1 Hear a just cause, O LORD, attend to my cry! Give ear to my prayer from lips free of deceit!
2 From You let Israel’s vindication come! Let Your eyes see the right of Your servant Jacob!
6 I call upon You, for You will hear me, O Father in heaven; in Yeshua’s Name, incline Your ear to me, and hear my words which actually are Yours, for I am praying and VOICING Your Word.
7 Wondrously show Your steadfast love [chesed] to Your servant Jacob, on whose behalf we seek refuge from their adversaries at Your right hand, O Savior of Israel, for we trust in Your help against those that rise up against Your people.
8 Keep the children of Israel as the apple of Your eye, hide them under the shadow of Your wings,
9 From the wicked that oppress and seek to despoil them, their deadly enemies who surround them.
10 For these enemies close their hearts to pity; with their mouth they speak arrogantly.
11 They have drawn closer and closer to track down Israelis, watching their steps: they have set their eyes to cast Your nation to the ground.
12 They are like a lion greedy of his prey, eager to tear, and as a young lion lurking in ambush.
13 Arise, O LORD, confront them, overthrow them! Deliver the life of your dove from the wicked by Your sword,
14 From men by Your hand, O LORD, from men [of the world], whose portion in life is of the world. May their belly be filled with what You have stored up for them; may their children have more than enough; may they leave something over for their babes.
15 But as for Your people, let them behold Your face in righteousness: when we awake we shall be satisfied with beholding Your form.
1 O LORD answer Israel in the day of trouble! Let Your Name, O G-d of Jacob, protect and defend the children of Israel.
2 Send help for them from Your sanctuary, and strengthen Your people from Zion!
3 Remember all their offerings of thanksgiving and praise, and accept their fasting and supplications! Selah.
4 Grant Your nation her heart’s desire of living in peace, and fulfill all the counsel and plans of the faithful and godly, of those who in Yeshua cling to You in faith and trust.
5 May Your people shout for joy over Your victory, and set up their banners in Your name, O LORD G-d of Israel. Abba, in Yeshua’s Name fulfill all our petitions!
6 Heavenly Father, I know and trust that You will help and save Your anointed [nation]; that You will answer her from Your holy heaven with the saving strength of Your victorious right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots [their armored corps], and some in missile defense: but we put Your Name in remembrance, O LORD, that Israel may make her boast in You, our G-d and Savior.
8 Israel’s enemies shall collapse and fall: but Your nation shall rise and stand upright.
9 Give victory and save, O LORD: let King Yeshua answer us when we call.

2 When evildoers assail Your people, their enemies and foes who utter lies and slanders on CNN, BBC, RAI and all the world’s leading TV news stations, cause them to stumble and fall.
3 Though a host encamp against Your nation, make her heart fearless: though war arise against Israel, in this will I be confident:
5 That in the time of trouble You will hide Your people in Your shelter [pavilion]: and conceal them under the cover of your tent; in the secret of Your tabernacle hide them and set them high upon a rock.
6 Lift up the heads of your people above their enemies round about them: and Israel will offer in Your tabernacle sacrifices of thanksgiving with shouts of joy; they will sing and make melody to You, O LORD.
7 Hear, Abba, when I cry aloud on behalf of Your people, have mercy on them, and answer me.
8 When You said, “Seek my face [on behalf of my servant Israel];” my heart said to You, “Your face, O LORD, Father in heaven, I will seek.”
9 Hide not Your face far from Israel; turn not Your servant away in anger [remember Your oath, that You will not be angry with Your people nor rebuke them – Isaiah 54:9], for You have been his help; don’t cast Your servant Jacob off, neither forsake Your chosen, Israel, O G-d of his salvation!
10 For though the whole world forsake Israel, but You, LORD, will take him up.
11 Teach Your people Your way, O LORD, and lead them on a level path because of their enemies.

13 I believe that Your people Israel shall see Your goodness, Father, in the land of the living.
14 O Israel, wait for the LORD! Be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait, I say, for the LORD.
1 Deliver Israel from their enemies, O my G-d: protect and defend them from those who rise up against them,
2 Deliver them from those who work evil, and save Your people from the bloodthirsty men.
3 For, lo, they lie in wait for the life of Israelis: fierce men of lawlessness, terrorists, Islamic fanatics, have banded themselves together against Your nation Israel; not for Israel’s transgression against them, nor for any wrong doing against our neighbors round about, O LORD.
4 They run and prepare themselves with suicide bombers to blow up Israelis, without Israel having faulted agreements signed. Rouse Yourself, come to Israel’s help, and see!
5 You, O LORD G-d of hosts, You alone are the G-d of Israel! Awake to visit all the nations: spare none of those who treacherously plot evil! Selah.
6 Day in day out the Palestinians come back with their hate slogans and flag burnings, their shooting of guns, making a lot of noise and howling like dogs, prowling about Israel’s cities.
7 There they are, bellowing with their mouths and snarling, their lips like swords – for “Who,” say think, “will hear us?
8 But You, O LORD, laugh at them; hold all the nations in derision.
9 Because You are the strength of Your people we will wait for You: for You, Holy One of Israel, are Your people’s defense.
10 Heavenly Father, You G-d of mercy, in Your steadfast love meet Your people; let them look in triumph on their enemies.
11 … make the enemy totter by Your power, scatter them and bring them down, O Lord our shield!
12 For the sin of their mouths and the words of their lips let Arafat and his gang of lawless men, and all the haters of Israel be trapped and taken in their pride. For the cursing and lies which they utter..
13 …Consume them in wrath, consume them till they are no more, that men may know that G-d rules in and over Jacob to the ends of the earth. Selah.
14 Yes, howling like dogs the Palestinians, the Hamas terrorists and Islamic Yihad suicide bombers prowl and go round in Israel’s cities.
15 They roam about seeking whom they may devour, and growl if they don’t succeed with killing Israelis.
16 But we will sing of Your might; yea, we will sing of Your mercy in the morning. For You have been Israel’s defense and a refuge in the day of their trouble and distress.
17 Unto You, O my strength, will I sing: for You are Israel’s G-d and their defense, a strong fortress and the G-d who shows His people steadfast love in Your mercy and grace.
Watchmen Pray Psalm 83Page 6
PSALM 83 ♦:
1 O G-d, do not keep silence; do not hold Your peace or be still, O G-d!
2 For, lo, Your enemies are in [and make] tumult; those who hate You have raised their heads.
3 They lay crafty plans against Your people, and consult together against Your protected [hidden] ones.
4 They say, “Come, let us wipe them out as a nation; let the name of Israel be remembered no more.”
5 Yea, Father, they conspire with one accord: against YOU they are confederate and made a covenant:
6 The tents of Edom [Saudi Arabia] and the Ishmaelites [all Arab nations and Moslems], Moab and the Hagrites,
7 Gebal, and Ammon [Jordan], and Amalek [the PLO/PA]; the Palestinians with the inhabitants of Tyre
[Hisbullah in Lebanon];
8 Assyria [Iran/Iraq/Syria] also has joined them; they have helped and are the strong arm of the children of Lot. Selah.
9 Father, do to them as You did to the Midianites; as to Sisera and Jabin at the brook of Kishon,
10 Who were destroyed at Endor, who became dung for the ground.
11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,
12 Who said, “Let us take possession for ourselves of the pastures of G-d.”
13 O my G-d, make them like tumbleweed, like chaff before the wind.
14 As the fire consumes wood, as the flame sets the mountains ablaze,
15 So pursue them with Your tempest and terrify them with Your hurricane!
16 Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek Your name, O LORD.
17 Let them be confounded and dismayed for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish.
17 That men may know that You alone, whose name is YHVH, are the Most High over all the earth.
6 Also the nation of Jordan [now in the place of Moab & Ammon] shall know that You are the LORD,
7 when You stretch out Your hand against them and hand them over as a spoil to the nations, because they clapped their hands and stamped with their feet and rejoiced with all the malice within them against the land of Israel. Cut them off from the peoples and cause them to perish out of the countries. All who rebel against You destroy from being a nation.
8 Because they say that the Jews are not different from other peoples, but that the house of Judah is like all the other nations,
9 Therefore, lay open Jordan’s flank
10 And give that nation to the people of the east in possession, that the Ammonites may not be remembered anymore among the nations.
11 When You will execute these judgments upon Moab & Ammon, which is now the nation of Jordan, then they will know that You are the LORD.
12 Moreover Edom, that is Saudi Arabia of today, has acted revengefully against the house of Judah, i.e. the Jews, and has grievously offended in taking vengeance upon them;
13 Therefore stretch out Your hand also against Edom… and make it desolate from Teman to Dedan by Your sword according to Your word by Your servant Isaiah the prophet, as recorded in chapter 34.
14 Lay Your vengeance upon Saudi Arabia [Edom] by the hand of Your people Israel, and have them do in Edom according to Your anger and according to Your wrath; and they shall know Your vengeance.
15 At last, O Lord G-D, because the Palestinians [Philistines] act revengefully and take vengeance despitefully with malice of heart to destroy Israel for the old hatred in never-ending enmity
16 Therefore stretch out Your hand also against the Palestinians and cut off the Cherethites, and destroy the remnant of the sea coast [whom you had brought up from the island of Crete/ Caphtor].
18 Execute Your great vengeance upon them with wrathful chastisements. Then they will know that You are the LORD, when You lay Your vengeance upon them.
5 Because they [Mount Seir~Esau~Amalek~PA; but also: Esau~Church of Rome] cherished perpetual hatred and enmity, and shed the blood of the children of Israel by the force of the sword in the time of their calamity, in the time that their iniquity had an end:
6 Therefore, O Lord G-D, You spoke and said that as You live, You will prepare them for blood, and blood shall pursue them: because [both the PA and the Church of Rome] are guilty of blood, hating the blood of Your people, therefore blood shall pursue them.
7 Make the PA and the Holy Roman Empire a waste and a desolation, and cut off from them all that come and go.
10 For reason that they said, “These two nations and these two countries shall be mine, and we will possess all of Israel [and make of it a Palestinian State] – although You, O LORD, were there [because the Land of Israel is YOUR OWN land] –
11 Therefore, as You live, deal with the PA/PLO/Hamas/Islamic Jihad/Hisbullah/Fatah, with Arafat and with the Church of Rome according to the anger and envy which they showed because of their hatred against Your people, the Jews. And make Yourself known among them when You judged them.
12 And Mount Seir, today’s “Amalek,” the Arab League nations and the Church of Rome shall know that You the LORD, have heard all the revilings and blasphemies which they utter against the mountains of Israel, saying, “Let them be laid desolate, for they are given us to devour.”
13 Thus with their mouths they magnify themselves against You, Father, and multiply their words against You, because You heard it.
14 Hence for the rejoicing of the whole earth make them desolate who seek to desolate Your people and Your heritage Israel.
15 As they have done unto Israel so do unto them… and they shall know that You are the LORD.
3 Because Israel’s enemy said of Judea and Samaria [they call the “Westbank”], “Aha, the ancient heights have become our possession,” desolating the “territories” [by ruining the springs and aquifiers, and filling the land with sewage and rocks], and swallowing up the “Westbank” on every side [by means of the Peace Process], so that Judea and Samaria have become the United Nations’ “pet possession” and Israel the talk and lewd gossip of the people through CNN, BBC, etc.
4 Therefore, let the mountains of Israel hear the word of the Lord G-D: because Judea and Samaria, i.e. the “Westbank,” have become a prey and derision to the rest of the nations round about;
5 Therefore, O Lord G-D, speak in Your hot jealousy against the residue of the nations and against all of the PA/PLO/Hamas/Islamic Jihad/Hizbullah, etc., who have appointed YOUR land to themselves as their possession with wholehearted joy, with despiteful minds and utter contempt, that they might possess it and plunder it.
6 Accordingly speak in Your jealousy and in Your fury, because Your land has suffered the reproach of the nations
7 and remember Your oath that You swore that the nations that are round about Israel shall themselves suffer reproach and bear their shame.
8 But the mountains of Israel, namely Judea and Samaria, shall shoot forth their branches, and yield their fruit to Your people Israel; for their exiles are at hand to come home, all of them.
9 Father, You promised that You are for Your people and land, therefore turn to them…
10 And multiply them upon the mountains of Israel, the whole house of Israel, even all of it, upon all of the Land You have given them. And let the cities be inhabited as it is now, and the waste places be rebuilt.
22 Father, not for Israel’s sake, but for the sake of Your Holy Name act, lest your Name be profaned among the nations because they will say that You were not able to fulfill Your good promises, and that there is no power with the G-d of Jacob to save His people.
23 Make the nations to know that YOU ARE the LORD when through Israel You vindicate Your holiness before their eyes.
24 Take the House of Judah and the House of Israel from the nations and gather them from all the countries and bring them into their OWN land.
25 Sprinkle clean water upon Your people and cleanse them from all their uncleanesses, and also from all their idols cleanse them.
26 Give them a new heart and put a new spirit within them; take out of their flesh the stoney heart and give them a tender heart of flesh.
27 Put Your Spirit within them and cause them to walk in Your statutes and ordinances.
28 Grant them to dwell [securely] in the land that You gave to their fathers; and make them Your people and You be their G-d.
29 Also save your people from all their uncleannesses, and summon the grain and make it abundant, and lay no famine upon them.
30 Make the fruit of the tree and the increase of the field abundant, that Israel may never again suffer the disgrace of famine among the nations.
31 Then shall your people remember their ways and their doings that were not good, and will loath themselves for their iniquities and abominable deeds.
32 Not for Israel’s sake, Father, act, but for Your own sake and for the sake of Your Holy Name, lest it be profaned among the nations who would say that You were not able to fulfill Your promises and save Your people from their enemies; that You are a G-d who does not keep Covenant, and that You have rejected Your servant Jacob and have no more dealings with your chosen, Israel. Act, O Father in heaven, Holy One of Israel, and vindicate Your Holy Name in the sight of the nations round about and far off, in Yeshua’s Name.
Watchmen PrayersPage 7
17 Because, Abba, O Lord our G-D, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm, and there is nothing too hard for You:
19 You are great in counsel and mighty in deed: and Your eyes are open to all the ways of [B’nei Adam] men, to give every one according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.
37 And now, Father, You are gathering Your people out of all the countries to which You drove them in Your anger and wrath and in great indignation, and are bringing them back to this place. Make them now dwell in safety as You promised.
38 Establish them as Your people, and be their G-d forever.
39 According to Your promise give them one heart and one way, that they may fear You for ever, for their own good and for the good of their children after them.
40 Make Your everlasting covenant with them that You will not turn away from doing good to them; and put the fear of You in their hearts, that they shall not depart from You.
41 Yea, O Abba, Holy One of Israel, rejoice over them to do them good, and plant them in this land in faithfulness with all Your heart and all Your soul.
42 For this is what You said, Father: Just as You brought all this great evil upon this people, so bring upon them all the good that You have promised them.
44 Restore their fortunes, O LORD, in Yeshua’s Name…
6…and bring health to your people and healing, and cure and heal them and reveal to them abundance of peace, truth, prosperity and security.
7 Restore the fortunes of Judah and the fortunes of Israel, and rebuild them as they were at first.
8 Cleanse them also from all the guilt of their sin against You; and forgive all the guilt of their sin and rebellion against You.
9 Create and make Your people Israel and Your city Jerusalem a name of joy, a praise and a glory before all the nations of the earth Who shall hear of all the good that You do for them: then they shall fear and tremble because of all the good and all the prosperity that You provide for them.
23 Moreover, Father…
24 Consider what the peoples are saying [and what Rome made all of Christianity to believe] that You, O LORD, have rejected the two families which You chose. Thus they have despised Your people and continue to do so, so that they are no longer a nation in their sight.
25 Therefore, Father, You responded and made it clear beyond the shadow of a doubt, that, if You have not established Your covenant with day and night and the ordinances of heaven and earth,
25 Then would you also reject the descendants of Jacob and David Your servant and would not choose one of his descendants to rule over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Now therefore, Heavenly Father, restore their fortunes and have mercy on them,
20 because Your covenant with the day and Your covenant with the night have not been broken and Your appointed ordinances of heaven and earth still stand.
11 O Shepherd of Israel, search for Your sheep and seek them out
12 As a shepherd seeks out his flock when some of his sheep have been scattered abroad, so seek out Your sheep; rescue them from all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.
13 And bring them out from the peoples, and gather them from the countries, and bring them into their own land, and feed them on the mountains of Israel [which are in Judea and Samaria] by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country.
14 Feed them in a good pasture upon the mountain heights of Israel: there make them lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture let them feed upon the mountains of Israel.
15 Be Yourself the Shepherd of Your sheep and make them lie down.
16 Seek the lost and bring back the strayed, and bind up the crippled and that which was broken, strengthen the weak and the sick and watch over the fat and the strong and feed them in justice with judgment.
22 Make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and give them one leader to be the head of their government. Make Your people to be no more two nations, and neither divided into two kingdoms.
23 Save Your people from all the backslidings in which they have sinned and cleanse them, so that they will not defile themselves any more with their idols and with their detestable things, or with any of their transgressions. So they will be Your people, and You will be their G-d.
28 …Leave none of Your people remaining among the nations anymore
29 and hide not Your Face anymore from them, but pour out Your Spirit upon the whole House of Israel, and save them.
But Father, because You do not delight in the death of the wicked nor does their death give you any pleasure – for You do not really wish that any man should perish but rather, that all would turn from their wickedness in repentance and be saved – therefore we make supplication on behalf of all men whom you convict of sin and guilt, of wickedness and evil doing, and who will turn in repentance from their wicked and unrighteous ways to surrender to and believe in and obey Yeshua, Your Son, King of Israel and Savior of the world. Father, we also pray that you keep record of every human being who desires and loves peace, who desires peace and blessings, security, joy and prosperity for Your people Israel, that in the Day of judgment you may remember them and reward them according to their ways and deeds.
As you swore, and as Jacob and Isaac swore, and as You spoke even by Balaam, the unfaithful prophet: let everyone who curses the children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, be cursed by You; and everyone who blesses the children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, be blessed by You. And bless such indeed with the greatest of Your blessings: with salvation in Yeshua the Messiah, Your Son, and everlasting life in Your Kingdom.
SO BE IT IN YESHUA’S NAME. AMEN + AMEN.
