Yesterday was the 70th anniversary of the freeing of the Jews from Auschwitz. After I left work, I turned on the radio and a lady who was held at more than one camp was describing how she survived. Because she spoke German so fluently, it eventually opened a door for her to work as a military official’s assistant. She pointed out that it would be easy to see the Germans in one light and to say, “Look what they did.” But not all Germans were doing that. For five years, she worked 12-hour shifts and was given only thin soup and bread to eat, but the man she worked for every day would wrap up a portion of his sandwich and leave it in the waste basket knowing she would dig it out and eat it. He couldn’t outright give it to her. If he had a big bowl of really good soup he would eat just a little bit and then tell her to clean up the bowl for him after he left knowing that she would eat it first.

This lady went on to talk about all the things she needed to do to survive. She said there was something in her that continually caused her to stay strong and to press ahead knowing that she would make it through and encouraged others to do the same.

The radio show host then recommended an HBO documentary about the camps and all that took place back then. Last night I watched that documentary. It got me so upset seeing the things that the Jewish people had to go through. It was truly insane and definitely from the devil. I thought of Reese Howells’ school and how their purpose was to pray daily against the move of Hitler into those nations, working against it until freedom came.

There is a video I watched where someone took a drone with a camera and flew over the camps to show what they looked like today (70 years later). I am so glad they let those camps stand as a reminder for people that this really took place. There is so much anti-Semitism today, and there are many people that even say it never happened. We are supposed to be concerned and pray for the peace of Jerusalem. We get to do that. That’s why we have the Israeli flag here in our sanctuary because many churches are not connected to Israel. There is a lot of other teachings like replacement theology and other things that are being taught about Israel. But we know that we are to pray for Israel and to BLESS them. What happens when we do that? We are blessed.

The following excerpt was taken from Growing in Prayer by Mike Bickle:


In AD 1727 Count Zinzendorf, a young, wealthy German nobleman, committed his estate in Germany to a twenty-four-hour-a-day prayer ministry. He renamed the estate “Herrnhut,” which means “the watch of the Lord.”

The origins of the Herrnhut prayer and missionary community go back to 1722, when Zinzendorf met a Moravian preacher, Christian David, who told him of the persecuted Protestants in Moravia. The Moravian believers were the remnants of John Huss’s followers in Bohemia who had suffered at the hands of Catholic monarchs.

Zinzendorf offered the Moravians asylum on his land. In response, about three hundred persecuted believers moved from Bohemia to his estate, forming the Herrnhut community. At that time, Zinzendorf gave up his court position to lead the group.

The radical believers at Herrnhut covenanted to pray in hourly shifts around the clock, all day and all night, every day, taking inspiration from Leviticus 6:13: “A fire shall always be burning on the altar; it shall never go out.” Their “prayer meeting” continued nonstop for the next one hundred years.

From the prayer room at Herrnhut came an unsurpassed missionary zeal. By 1776 more than two hundred missionaries had been sent out from the small community.

Zinzendorf became the leader of the first Protestant missionary movement in history. His policy was to send out missionaries, two by two, to the unreached people groups of the earth. As they went out, the prayer furnace back home in Herrnhut covered them in prayer. In other words, the first Protestant missionary movement married the prayer aspect of the Great Commission with the proclamation, or evangelism, aspect. Count Zinzendorf saw prayer and missions as inseparable.

I do not have space to describe the many other tremendous movements of prayer that have arisen throughout church history. But it is important to mention the strong relationship that exists between continual prayer and revival. The First Great Awakening (1720-1760), the Haystack Prayer Meeting leading to the first missionaries being sent out from the US in 1806, the Second Great Awakening in the early nineteenth century (1790-1840), the Welsh revival (1904-1905), the Azusa Street revival (1906-1915), the Pyongyang revival in Korea (1907-1910), and the revivals in China (1927-1937) and Indonesia (1964) all bear witness to this truth. Each of these revivals followed a similar pattern: a radical group of believers committed themselves to continual intercession and then revival broke out, which in turn led to significant missionary activity.

An irrefutable law in God’s kingdom holds that in God’s timing revival in the church, with evangelistic zeal and effectiveness, will always follow wherever night-and-day prayer is established. Now you can see why it is so important!

Scripture Reference…

Please pray these two scriptures over Israel.

(1) “I will lift up my eyes to the hills [around Jerusalem, to sacred Mount Zion and Mount Moriah]—From whence shall my help come? (2) My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. (3) He will not allow your foot to slip or to be moved; He Who keeps you will not slumber. (4) Behold, He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. (5) The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand [the side not carrying a shield]. (6) The sun shall not smite you by day, nor the moon by night. (7) The Lord will keep you from all evil; He will keep your life. (8) The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.” Psalm 121 (Amp.)

(1) “I was glad when they said to me, Let us go to the house of the Lord! (2) Our feet are standing within your gates, O Jerusalem!— (3) Jerusalem, which is built as a city that is compacted together— (4) To which the tribes go up, even the tribes of the Lord, as was decreed and as a testimony for Israel, to give thanks to the name of the Lord. (5) For there the thrones of judgment were set, the thrones of the house of David. (6) Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! May they prosper who love you [the Holy City]! (7) May peace be within your walls and prosperity within your palaces! (8) For my brethren and companions’ sake, I will now say, Peace be within you! (9) For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I will seek, inquire for, and require your good.” Psalm 122 (Amp.)

We see that city, Israel, up on a hill—speaking against her adversaries
Pleading the blood of the Lamb over the land and borders
Staying steady and strong on Israel’s behalf
Hidden things be uncovered and removed today in Jesus’ name
We say “No!” to the enemy and his ways
Speaking strength to all leaders in Israel—eyes to see!
Women and children strengthen—seeing and knowing the right way
Shutting down the illegal tunnels in Jesus’ name
Stop in Your maneuvers—declaring confusion over them in Jesus’ name
Aid, assistance, and help today
Knowing what to do and where to go
We will continue to stay strong in prayer with them in Jesus’ name
Where there seems to be no way, there is A WAY!
Taking authority over fear—receiving strength in Jehovah God
Upon the Golan Heights—watcher that will watch!
We speak to the surrounding area to simmer down in Jesus’ name
Protection by the blood of the Lamb over Israel’s military
Turn-arounds over the city of Jerusalem—God’s plans not man’s plans
Father, You have lifted Prime Minister Netanyahu—there is an arising of Your Power in Him NOW!
Kingdoms that come against Israel are brought down NOW BY THE POWER OF THE LIVING GOD!
Friends of Israel are rising now—supernaturally protected!
Knowing the way to go—they will not be intimidated but they will STAND!
All those with evil intent will come to the light and those plans will come to nothing
God is with Israel’s Prime Minister and cabinet
Softening the hearts of all the secular Jews—they are coming back to their God
People going to their synagogues and invoking their covenant with You
Hearing Your voice and not another
Signs and wonders and miracles—taking them back to their roots—a country hungry for God

I saw us to do just one thing before we close. Please stand with me. I would like to end this prayer with our voices lifted together in a shout as the sound of a shofar. Often times the shofar was blown to celebrate a victory but also when the “praise-ers” went out in front of the armies. Let your voice be the sound of the shofar declaring victory for the nation of Israel. It will come back on you. Bless the nation and you shall be blessed. One, two, three, blow….
