Abba, Do You Hear?

Abba, do you hear?
Zion as she cries
The cries, the groaning of Your people
Do you see her desperation?

Zion is crying out

While the leaders of the nations set themselves against
You who made them

Zion still cries out

Zion waits
Wondering,
Hoping her suffering is not in vain

Abba,
Holy One,
Giver of Life

I join Zion’s cry
My heart beats with hers
I cry with Zion
Waiting,
Wondering,
Hoping

Knowing Your desire over Zion
Knowing You will heal her
Knowing You are seeking her out
For Yourself

I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds, says the LORD, Because they called you an outcast saying: “This is Zion; No one seeks her.” Jeremiah 30:17

Zion’s Healing

IMG_9217 - Version 2

I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds, says Adonai,
Because they called you an outcast saying: This is Zion; no one seeks her.

– excerpt from the book of the prophet Jeremiah

The heart of the father,
The heart of Adonai
Healing is the bread given to his children
Restoration is the hope for all who are his

Israel is his child,
His firstborn son
When all the nations and all the peoples
Cast you out

O Zion, he will seek you out
Your father will find you
When you are lost and destitute
He will rescue you

The heart of the father,
The heart of Adonai
Calling out, crying out
Bringing life to his children
Remembering their cries
