I think you have misunderstood the scriptures, the bible says pray fro the peace for Jerusalem; they shall prosper who love them, yes Israel or the Jewish nations have blessed the whole world because Abraham was a Jew and the Lord Jesus was a Jew. Christ brought salvation to all mankind.
If you can't see that you need to study scriptures.
Your pastor is wrong because the bible says God shows no partiality and He's no respector of person.God did choose the nation of Israel to make His name known throughout the earth, they are still the apple of God's eye. But God loves the gentiles too, and before the foundation of the world He had plan to save all mankind.
Please see scriptures below.
Genesis 12:3 (Read all of Genesis 12)
And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
Psalm 122:6 (Read all of Psalm 122)
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious
the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;Acts 9:15 (Read all of Acts 9)
But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:
Acts 11:1 (Read all of Acts 11)
And the apostles and brethren that were in Judaea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God.

Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
Acts 13:47 (Read all of Acts 13)
For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.
Romans 2:11 (Read all of Romans 2)
For there is no respect of persons with God.
John 3:1 (Read all of 1 John 3)
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
God Is Love
7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born  of God, and knoweth God. 8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. 13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.
15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. 16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
Hope you'll be bless.
We all are greatly love by God trough the Lord Jesus Christ.
