Anne Graham Lotz says Christians must pray for Israel now more than ever. During an appearance on The Jim Bakker Show, Lotz confided that she does not approve of Trump’s retreat from Syria and believes it puts many allies in the area in danger. But Lotz then said that perhaps the U.S.’s retreat could trigger the war prophesied in Ezekiel 38, setting in motion end-times events for Israel.
Referencing both the regional unrest and Israel’s ongoing efforts to establish a coalition government, Lotz referenced Psalm 122:6 and said it’s a critical time for believers to intercede for Israel.
“It’s a time to pray for the peace of Jerusalem,” Lotz said. “…And what my prayer would be is that when the enemy comes against Israel, that she’ll know—and right now, you know, she’s in an election flux where I don’t think Rivlin is going to approve Netanyahu. They’re just in a mess. They don’t have a leadership right now. The Israelis are divided when the enemies are surrounding them. And could it be that it gets so bad, that like they did in Judges, they’ll cry out? But this time, they’ll cry out to God and say, ‘God, help us,’ and will He send the Messiah to deliver them? So it’s a very critical, strategic time for the nation of Israel, and I believe God’s Word when it says that He blesses those who bless Israel and bless His people. So we can bless them through our prayers for them. Just follow the news. Pray for the leadership. Pray for Israel.”
