Israel is pressed on every side. Anarchy increases in Sinai. Hamas and Hezbollah stockpile weapons in underground tunnels in Sinai, Gaza, and Lebanon. Syria is in civil war.
Judges 3:31 (NIV)
After Ehud came Shamgar son of Anath, who struck down six hundred Philistines with an oxgoad. He too saved Israel.
Anath–means answer (to prayer)
The number 600 is associated with warfare.
–Noah was 600 years old at the time of the flood.
–At the Exodus, Pharoah sent 600 of the best chariots.
–Six hundred Danites conquered Laish.
–David moved from place to place with 600 men as Saul searched for him.
You chose Israel. They are still beloved for the sake of their forefathers, for Your gifts and Your call are irrevocable. They are called to be the prophetic nation, and You said
“Do not touch my anointed ones;
do my prophets no harm.”
We cry out for no harm to come to Your prophets.
Father, we humbly ask You to flood the tunnels that hold weapons and ammunition. If Israel’s enemies use armed vehicles, boats, or airplanes to prey on her, we humbly ask you to lock their wheels or rudders in mud. If they encroach Israel’s borders, we humbly ask you to rebuff them. If Israel’s enemies seek the death of Your prophets, we humbly ask You to hide Your prophets and rebuke the prophet-slaying spirit. Strike down all missiles, just as Shamgar struck down the 600 Philistines. Amen.
