Protesters around the world have hit the streets to object to Russia’s threats against Ukraine. However, because of the large Jewish population in both countries, tensions between Russia and Ukraine have been a matter of discussion in the highest parts of Israel’s government.

I think you’d agree being a leader today isn’t an easy job. The truth is, we are all leading someone or something, and just as our decisions affect the daily lives of those we lead, the decisions made by leaders trickle-down. It’s a massive level of responsibility for leaders on a national or international stage. The power struggle to lead will always exist – as such there will also always be a tension between those who lead and those who will challenge their actions – aka journalists. Just this week one of Israel’s most distinguished journalists who has been on radio for over decades retired on live radio. “This isn’t the country I wanted to live in,” he said as he lamented his industry becoming more about hype, ratings and political correctness than about offering a worthy service of informing citizens of what is happening – as was the case in his earlier years.

Prayer is the most powerful way we can make a difference in the lives of those leaders we may never meet in person. Paul urged his spiritual son, Timothy, to pray for all in authority.

«I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth. For, there is one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus. He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time.» (1 Timothy 2:1-6)

  • Father, thank You for being the perfect leader to us. You lead us with compassion and endless wisdom. You are sovereign over all the earth.
  • Help us seek your heart in prayer today for our leaders. We desire to know and pray Your will, not our own.
  • It is you who places leaders in our lives – our pastors, bosses, local government leaders as well as national and international leaders. You put people in authority, give influence and positions, and choose when to remove them. (Daniel 2:21) And so we ask for godly leaders who will lead us on Your path.
  • When we don’t understand what is happening around us and it seems unfair- we trust You. You have all power and authority – in heaven and on earth.
  • The media leads our society when it comes to information and opinions. Whether You infiltrate the current media system or raise up an entirely new form of communication – let Your truth be made known to the masses.
  • We pray for wisdom and strength for Israel’s Prime Minister – Naftali Bennett today. As the threat of the Russian invasion in Ukraine looms, he and current Foreign Minister Yair Lapid are in emergency meetings, discussing the evacuation of Israelis and those who are eligible for Israeli citizenship in Ukraine. We ask for supernatural wisdom for these leaders and their support staff in the coming days.
  • We ask for Jews who remain in Ukraine, whether by fear of change or because circumstances have barred them from coming to Israel – clear the path for them to move back to their homeland – especially those who know You.
  • Lord, thank you for the doors You have opened to Arab nations through the Abraham Accords. Bless the countries who have made this strong statement to the the rest of the Arab world to strengthen ties with Israel- the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco. Help them not to be intimidated by backlash from other Arab nations at odds with Israel.
  • We pray for favor for the Israeli President, Isaac Herzog, as he builds upon the relationships he has developed during his career. Help him as he works on strengthening long-term Israeli relations and alliances worldwide. Thank you for how he has reached out to Christians and is interested in interfaith cooperation – let this comradery extend to the Messianic Jewish community as well.
  • Let peace reign in Israel and the surrounding nations. We pray for the Defense Minister, Benny Gantz, as he and his cabinet focus on Israel’s military threats.
  • Thank you for the 173,000 soldiers actively serving in the IDF to protect Israel. We pray for the Chief of the General Staff (Head of the IDF), Aviv Kochavi. Grant him strength, strategy, and clarity of mind as he leads the IDF. Help him, and his 24 major generals and brigadier generals be a unified team.
  • We pray for the education system and the teachers, principals, and administrative staff who are molding and shaping the future leaders of Israel. We pray for the Minister of Education, Yifat Shasha-Biton. Give her creative ideas on how to strengthen students, teachers and parents after a hard 2 years concerning education and the pandemic.
  • Every generation will have its own unique leaders who will define that generation – so we pray already for the leaders who will lead our children and their children. Protect their upbringing, defend them in the face of evil – and most importantly bring them into relationship with You so that blessings may rain down on all those they lead.
