Från ett utskick från Kristna ambassaden i Jerusalem, ICEJ:
"I want to share an encouraging word regarding the power of prayer!
The most commonly used word for prayer in the Hebrew Bible is palal.
It is a powerful word which can be translated as prayer or
intercession, but also ‘to judge’ or ‘to decree judgment’. The first few
times it used in the Bible reveals already the powerful, transformative
effects of prayer.
Genesis 20, Abraham prays for King Abimelech and he is healed and his
life is spared. In other words, the prayer of one man prevented a shift
of power in Abimelech’s kingdom.
Deuteronomy 9:20, Moses intercedes for Aaron after he built the golden
calf. God determined judgment for Aaron, but Moses’ prayer changes his
fate and he lives for another 40 years – giving priestly leadership to
an entire nation."
