Dear Intercessors for Israel:
Greetings from the Global Outpouring’s (ETH&S) ministry base in Jasper, Arkansas! Marylois and I are spending our summer here and praying & hoping for a timely return to Israel. As of now though, Israel is still on lockdown due to the COVID-19 virus. For the past two days, a new high of over 2,000 individuals have tested positive for the virus, with some 57,400 persons infected and 440 deaths in the nation. Ben Gurion airport is shut down to tourists and the country’s malls are closed once more. The government is placing its hope in testing and vaccine development, so as to get back to a measure of normal life for its citizens. Unless there is a breakthrough, Israel looks to remain closed to tourists through “the high holy days in early October.” Pray to the God of the breakthrough, to deliver His people from this pandemic.
My prayer for Israel and her people comes from Joel and Psalms: “Fear not O Israel; be glad and rejoice for the LORD will do great things.” (Joel. 2:21) “Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD there is mercy and with him is plenteous redemption. And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities” (Ps. 130:7-8). Pray for Israel this week, that this plague would swiftly pass. Ask the LORD to do great things. Pray that Israel would also hope in the LORD, and appeal to Him for healing and forgiveness.
When the Israelites in the desert looked at the bronze snake on the pole, they were healed (Num. 21:9). This picture is a type and shadow of Jesus becoming sin for us. As He was lifted up, so he being made a curse for us, brought salvation and healing to all. May all of Israel look to the Lord and find healing.
IDF on Alert
The IDF said this week, it was reinforcing the country’s northern border with infantry troops “in case a surprise missile or ground attack would be carried out by Hezbollah. The move follows earlier threats by the Hezbollah terrorist group that it will retaliate, “from Lebanese soil,” over an Israeli airstrike, this week. Hezbollah claims that one of its men was killed in this attack near Damascus International Airport. Pray for Israel’s safety, alertness for the IDF and that “no weapon that is formed against Israel shall prosper.” Pray that every plot, plan, and strategy of the evil one, and Hezbollah be exposed and nullified.
New Archaeological Discoveries
There is a popular saying in Israel: “If you are poor, go dig in your basement.” In other words, you just might find buried treasure under your feet. The land of Israel is rich in archaeological artifacts. Just this week, the Israel Antiquities Authority announced that it had discovered a significant administrative storage center from the days of Kings Hezekiah and Menashe (8th century to the middle of the 7th century BCE). This ancient stone warehouse was uncovered near the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem when a new neighbor was being constructed. 120 jar handles were found bearing seal impressions containing ancient Hebrew script! Many of the handles bare the inscription “LMLK” – (belonging) to the King- with the name of an ancient city. The directors of the new excavation declared that “This is one of the most significant discoveries from the period of the Kings in Jerusalem made in recent years.”
House of Peace
The Wednesday prayer team is able to meet faithfully for intercession. Margalit gathers the intercessors and prays for Israel, the Israeli Government, and her leaders. The Jewish people, the Messianic Body of Messiah. Just last Wednesday, after intercession, the team celebrated the 80th birthday of one our dear sisters. These precious intercessors are like an “Anna Company” before the Lord. Please keep them in your prayers for their strength and healing as some are in need of healing in the name of Yeshua! Gene and I are grateful to all the team who is keeping watch over House of Peace. Again, thank you for your prayers and faithful giving to our ministry in the Land of Israel!
Our Blessings and Shabbat Shalom,
Gene and Marylois/House of Peace

Note from Marylois:
Recently, July 17th, I watched a live message by Kevin Zadai on YouTube. At the close of the meeting, Dr. Zadai was praying in the spirit, I too began to pray in tongues and saw this short vision.
It was night and I was seeing an empty lot of land and could see across a body of water, the city lights in the distance of a U.S. city. All of a sudden, the ground, five to six feet in front of me, opened up. It slit open – the size of a manhole opening for city workers. Out of the slit in the ground came a black furry animal creature three or four feet in size who started to crawl out of the ground. I began to speak to it in the name of Jesus Christ and command it back into the hole as I knew it was demonic. I prayed the Lord send angels to come and a war angel came with a spear. As I prayed in tongues and in the name of Jesus, the angel poked the demon back down the slit in the ground. The angel then released extremely bright silver grate over the opening and the opening was chained and locked up. Then more silver grates, chains and locks came down on other slits in the ground across the entire lot as far as I could see.
As I wrote the vision out, I heard the Lord saying “Cover the land with the Blood covering of Jesus Christ, with His Redeeming Body and Blood. Alert the intercessors: This is not the time for these things to come out of the ground. Force them back down in the name of Christ Jesus! The plan of the ages is in My control not hell’s. Declare it Holy Ground for the purposes of Heaven’s calling on the earth and no other! The earth is the Lords and the fullness there of “. Psalm 24:1
Over the years, I have prayed with maps of the nations. If you have a map of the United States or your nation, pray and decree the scriptures over the map, write the scripture references on the map, anoint it with oil and lets agree with Psalm 24:1 The earth is the Lords and the fullness there- of!! Amen!
As I close, I want to recommend, Dutch Sheets recent message, “The Importance of Our Christian Roots”
“It’s time to convene a Holy Convocation to reset our nation. God is not finished with America! We’re in a battle of the ages and there are many who are intent on re-writing America’s destiny and hiding its history. We, as God’s people, must take our place on the front lines and insist that His purposes are accomplished. We can watch history being written, or we can write it. Join me as we Appeal to Heaven. “
Blessing and Shalom,
