Israel Prayer Letter, November 3, 2017


Thou shalt arise. And have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favor her, yea, the set time, is come…When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.  He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.  This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the LORD.

(Ps. 102:13, 16-18)

Dear Intercessors and Friends of Israel:

Greetings from Jerusalem.  We have been in the glory all this week, hosting ministry meetings with Pastor Mark Bristow, Eva Dooley, and Claren and Nancy McQueen.  They have traveled here to minister to the believers in this land, encouraging and praying for all.  Several meetings were held at the House of Peace, as well as Succat Hallel, and the Jerusalem Prayer Tower.  Many received a fresh touch, an encouraging word, and healings.  Pastor Mark, Eva, and Claren have all felt that Jerusalem is coming into a new season of change.  This is a year of favor with the LORD, a set time to build up the body of Yeshua in Zion. It is a moed season (Hebrew for an appointed time) or a Kairos season (Greek for opportunity, moment for action).  Many here have felt a change in the spiritual atmosphere over Jerusalem.  It has been a long dry spiritual season here, but the wells of revival are being re-dug and reopened.  It is as if the “set time” has come and the LORD is about to build up Zion.

Chuck Pierce and Dutch Sheets also visited Jerusalem this week. Dutch Sheets told the believers that he had not visited Jerusalem since 1987, but this year, the LORD opened the door. They opened a new “watering hole” in the city:  Glory of Zion Fellowship.  Chuck encouraged the believers with a strong word that God was about to favor Jerusalem.  He also saw the waters of revival rising, and ancient gates in the spirit – long closed, now opened. 

“I Am Returning to Pioneer Hebron”

Chuck Pierce also shared an amazing word that the Lord gave him.  He heard His still soft voice proclaim, “I am returning to pioneer Hebron again.”  He felt that there would be three years of warring until a breakthrough portal was opened.  This portal was a great and effectual open door but with many adversaries (I Cor. 16:9, I Pet. 5:8).


Hebron is large Palestinian city of some 216,000 people, almost all totally Muslim.  It currently is a hotbed for Islamic radicalism.  The current mayor Taysir Abu-Sneineh is a former Islamic terrorist, convicted by Israel of murdering six Israelis in 1980.  He was released by Israel in a prisoner exchange.



Hebron is a busy center of trade, generating roughly a third of the area's gross domestic product, largely due to the sale of marble from quarries. It has a local reputation for its grapes, figs, limestone, pottery workshops and glassblowing factories, and is the location of the major dairy-product manufacturer, al-Juneidi. The old city of Hebron features narrow, winding streets, flat-roofed stone houses, and old bazaars. The city is home to Hebron University. Hebron is attached to the cities of Ad Dhahiriya, Dura, and Yatta, which are surrounding villages with no borders. Hebron is the largest Palestinian governorate with a population of 600,364 as of 2010 (www.wikipedia.com).


Hebron also has a small community of Jewish “pioneers,” 500-700 members who live near the Cave of the Patriarchs, the ancient burial site of Abraham, Isaac, Sarah, and Rebecca.  They are but a remnant of a once thriving Jewish community that was destroyed in the Hebron riots of 1929.  The modern Jewish community of Hebron was re-founded after Israel’s victory over Jordan in 1967.

Prayer Journey

After listening to Chuck Pierce’s word, four of us from the House of Peace drove into the Palestinian city of Hebron today.  We were on a journey to pray for this city and its inhabitants who dwell in darkness.  I, and the others with me, felt like Jonah going to Nineveh.  We asked God to move on hearts and re-open ancient wells.  Nothing is impossible with God.  Most would laugh at the thought, “Revival in Hebron?” Caleb asked for a mountain, and took it.  Hebron became his inheritance (Josh. 14:14).  Pray with us for Hebron.  Its name means “alliance” and also “place of the Hebrews” since Abraham first lived there.  Pray for God to do His work in this city among those who are Jewish, Muslim, and Christian.  Pray for new wells to be opened.

Conquering Giants

Dutch Sheets also spoke on “conquering giants.”  He felt that there were five spiritual giants to contend with concerning the city of Hebron.  He did not name them but asked us to pray into this.  Hebron was once a city of giants, as the Anakims were there, but Caleb prayed and believed God to drive them out (Josh. 14:12).  Join with us this week, and pray for Hebron.  Drive these giants out in your “war room.” Proclaim as Caleb did that “the LORD will be with me.”

Jerusalem Summons

ETH President, Sharon Buss, and Vice President, Philip Buss along with Marylois and I, and others, will be ministering in a series of meetings November 7th-9th at the Israel Prayer Tower.  We will be praying for Israel during this time, and for the believers here.  We will be calling out for the LORD to re-open the wells of revival for the “set time” is here.  This Psalm (Psalm 102) was written by David for the “generation to come.” We are that “generation” created to praise the LORD.  

Shabbat Shalom,

Gene and Marylois/House of Peace
