Writing Every Day for Thirty-One Days
to Speak Life over Israel

While much of the earth is speaking death and accusation over the Jewish nation, let’s take 31 days to do the opposite. Let’s speak life over the nation of Israel and the Jewish people.

Day 4: Embrace

When I read the news
and experience the pain
that comes against your people
and your city
I cannot face it without your embrace

G-d of Israel, please embrace your people today
Please keep your people today

We cannot make it without you
We desperately need you, O G-d of Israel
Please help
Please stop the vile murder of the innocent ones
Please uphold the children

G-d, may your desire for your people
Keep and bring us nearer
to your everlasting kindness

May your embrace of your people
Preserve and uphold life
Day by day

O Holy One of Israel
You are greater than any other
There is no one like you
King of the Universe
May your name be glorified and sanctified
in your people and through your people
Today

While much of the earth is speaking death and accusation over the Jewish nation, let’s take 31 days to do the opposite. Let’s speak life over the nation of Israel and the Jewish people.

Day 3: Capture

G-d, what is on your heart towards Israel today?
What do you feel when your children
are murdered on the streets?
What is in your heart?
How long will the hatred prevail?
When will you stop the evil?
What will you do to keep and preserve your people?

The people of Israel exist because of You and for You
Your desires and plans for your people are beautiful
Yet the war against your people increases daily

You who made Israel
and created all things
You who never slumber nor sleep,
who will make everything right
You who will bring hope to the earth again
Give us hope

The hope for the world that is your heart
The hope for your people Israel that is in your heart
The hope for those who bow before you
that is in your heart
Please share it with us today

Day 2: Family

A family was harshly ripped apart last night in Israel. This isn’t the first family to be tragically separated and murdered by terrorist haters while driving home or sleeping in their beds.

What was this family’s crime? They are Jewish and G-d’s words and commands mattered to them. The thirty year-old mother and thirty-one year old father were gunned down while driving home with their four children in the backseat, ranging from four months to nine years-old, who sustained no physical injuries.

These children are physically okay yet they are not fine. They lost their mother and father. They are orphans now. They are orphans because they are Jews living in a land G-d covenanted to their people. They are orphans because others wholeheartedly despise the very existence of the Jewish people because they despise the very existence of the true and living G-d.

These children bear the mark of G-d. They bear the mark of being chosen and elect by G-d. They bear the mark of generations of Jewish people who have suffered anguish, hatred and murder at the hands of the haters of their day.

May those who profess to love G-d also learn to love the people of His choosing.

May we enter into the rest of G-d this Sabbath day and feast under his tabernacle this season as we remember his deliverance from Egypt. May we remember his kindnesses towards us despite yesterday’s tragedy. May we pray for these children and this family and the many families who have experienced this terror and hatred firsthand.

Israel

You are the Son of Abraham, the Son of Isaac
You are Jacob who wrestled and won

You are the Firstborn Son
Child of Destiny

Set Apart among the nations
Holiness to the Lord
The first fruits of His increase

Remembered Forever

You were given the Torah to walk in His ways
You were given the Tabernacle to dwell with G-d
The Temple, the Priesthood, the Fragrant Offering
All given to you, O Israel

Remember Your Destiny, O Jerusalem
Remember Who You are

Called, Chosen, Elect
Made for G-d
Remember O Israel
Yizkor, O Chosen Ones
