Springing Up


Spring has already arrived in Nazareth with a multitude of flowers, including red poppies, pink cyclamen and yellow camphorweed. Israel is also beginning to emerge from their fourth lockdown, with schools and shops reopening and life beginning to get back to normal. 

HOPE (House of Prayer and Exploits) in Nazareth has taken advantage of the time of lockdown at the House of Prayer building, to complete some much needed renovation work and replace some 50 year old plumbing that was about to disintegrate. They are now spring cleaning the place so it is ready to welcome back in-person prayer.  

Throughout the lockdown, they have been meeting online and continue to intercede for Nazareth and the whole nation of Israel,: For the Arab and Jewish followers of Jesus and for revival throughout the Land.

HOPE have even managed to hold their powerful Arab Debroah women’s healing conferences online. The most recent one was with a prophetic ministry in America run by Barbara Yoder who has a powerful anointing for releasing life and freedom. The theme was: “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:18-19

A new season also brings new vision, and Rania and the team are excited that this is the time for expanding the borders of their tent.  The Lord has spoken to them about this vision for many years, but they are feeling that the time is coming close to act. There is a beautiful new build overlooking the valley, that the team believe could be the perfect place to expand the work of the ministry. There would be enough space for prayer meetings, healing rooms, teaching spaces and accommodation for overseas visitors. They need to raise $260,000 for the deposit and are overwhelmed with the generosity of so many people who have already come alongside them. The property will not be secured without the deposit, but they have been blessed with an extension of time to raise the first payment. If you would like to sow into this new ministry base for HOPE House of Prayer and Exploits, go to the DONATE page on our website and note that your gift is for HOPE’s New Building. 

HOPE have been such a powerful bringer of healing and restoration and reconciliation - breaking down barriers and setting people free emotionally and spiritually.  We are so excited to see what the Lord has in store for them for this next season. 


For the Holy Spirit to continue to minister to the hearts of the women who came to the Arab Deborah Zoom conference.  That they would be able to walk out their healing and freedom. 

For the new building project. For financial provision and for wisdom for Rania and the team as they push into this vision. 

Strength and health and protection for Rania and her family during this time as she continues to lead and encourage the community of HOPE

The release of fresh oil of God’s anointing over the young generation as they take leadership in releasing a fresh sound of worship over the land!
