About the Campaign

Has the Lord forgotten Israel? Has God forsaken His people?

You may be asking these questions after seeing the atrocities of the past week, and you feel helpless. The death toll has reached over 1,200 souls. There have been over 100 hostages confirmed so far that have been kidnapped by terrorists… and we know there are more. 

Every number represents a person with a story and a family grieving or anxiously awaiting their return. I know your heart is breaking, and you want to make a difference. Prayer is the most effective way to join this rescue mission in God's heart from wherever you are. 

Each one of these hostages are inscribed on the palm of God’s hand, that is why we want to write their names on our hands as well. 

Will you Pray for Israel by name? We invite you to write the name of a hostage on your hand and commit to praying for them daily until they are brought home safely. 

Isaiah also asked if God had forsaken Israel, in Isaiah 49, but he went on to say: 

“...I will not forget you.

See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands...” Isaiah 49:15-16

Our hearts were filled with hope when 30 missing people were found safe yesterday. Then, a mother named Avital and her 2 children, who were kidnapped and taken to the Gaza Strip, escaped miraculously while the gunman was unaware. God helped them get back into Israel safely on foot! 

We believe many more will be rescued and brought home safely because of your prayers. 

We encourage you to post a photo or a short video of you holding up your hand with the name of a hostage you are praying for. Let’s stand together and trust God to rescue His people! Tag #PrayByName

How to Pray

  • Pray for peace over Israel and for the preservation of life — both Jew and Arab alike.

  • Pray for the protection of our friends and families who have been called into the reserves and who are preparing for a possible ground operation in Gaza.
  • Pray for those who have been taken hostage, that they would be kept safe and rescued speedily.
  • Pray that hatred and incitement would cease and that the power of God’s love would minster to hearts and minds across Israel and Gaza.
  • Pray that the body of believers can continue to provide hope and practical assistance to those who are suffering.
