Do not forget Jerusalem

IMG_5039 - Version 2

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 31: Almost

The challenges continue in Israel
Attacks happening on a near daily basis
Many attacks have happened in and near Hevron
where the patriarchs were buried
Attacks are too common in Judea and Samaria
Stabbings have also visited Rishon leZion and Tel Aviv

The difficulties continue for Israel
Yet Israel hasn’t lost hope
Israel cannot lose hope
Israel hasn’t given up
and cannot give up

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem
Whether you’re in Israel
or you’re on the other side of the planet,

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem
G-d loves Jerusalem and marked that city forever
He will not forget Jerusalem nor his people, ever
Because G-d does not forget,
Do not forget
Because his love does not grow cold,
Do not let your love grow cold

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem,
“May they prosper who love you.
Peace be within your walls,
Prosperity within your palaces.”
For the sake of my brethren and companions,
I will now say, “Peace be within you.”
Because of the house of the Lord our G-d
I will seek your good.

Tehillim/Psalm 122

If I forget you, O Jerusalem,
Let my right hand forget its skill!
If I do not remember you,
Let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth –
If I do not exalt Jerusalem above my chief joy.

Tehillim/Psalm 137

Day 27: Perhaps

Perhaps things are better than they seem
Perhaps the hatred we see is not really hatred at all
Perhaps the darkness of young ones
desiring to murder Jews in the name of god
isn’t as bad as it seems
Perhaps peace is possible
Perhaps

Perhaps the world will not continue in their anti-Semitic ways
Perhaps Israel will not be hated continually,
in the same way Jews have been hated century after century
Perhaps

Perhaps the kings will bow before the one G-d
Perhaps the enemies of G-d will stop their hating
Perhaps those who hate the G-d of Israel
will change their ways
and change their minds
and change their hearts
Perhaps

May the wicked turn to G-d
that they may not perish in their wickedness
May those who glorify death
turn from their wicked ways
and seek the living G-d who gave them life

May the haters find G-d’s love
May those seeking death find G-d’s life
May those given to darkness encounter G-d’s light

May G-d keep and protect his people Israel
from those seeking their destruction
May Israel find deliverance and life
in the G-d who has never forgotten nor forsaken them
May Israel run into the heart of G-d
who made Israel for his own glory

Baruch haShem

Standing with Israel, Standing with G-d

O G-d, do not be silent;
 do not hold aloof; 
do not be quiet, O G-d! For Your enemies rage,
 Your foes assert themselves. They plot craftily against Your people,
 take counsel against Your treasured ones. They say, “Let us wipe them out as a nation; 
Israel’s name will be mentioned no more.”…pursue them with Your tempest, 
terrify them with Your storm. Cover their faces with shame
 so that they seek Your name, O Lord…May they know
 that Your name, Yours alone, is the Lord, 
supreme over all the earth. Tehillim/Psalm 83

Day 23: Joy

Our mouths were filled with laughter
Our hearts with joy and singing
as the G-d brought the captive ones of Zion back

Despite the daily difficulties
of Israeli life today
The day of joy and gladness,
The day of triumph and rejoicing
will come one day very soon

It will be in a moment in time and history
One day soon
when Zion sings and shouts
and rejoices in G-d their maker,
The anointed one,
Their deliverer

Joy and life are coming one day soon to Zion
Hope and deliverance,
Healing and righteousness
like a blazing torch
Will be Zion

Jerusalem is his joy
and his great delight
The city of G-d’s choosing forever

I will delight in Jerualem
and take great joy in her singing

Jerusalem will sing
Jerusalem will rejoice
Israel will shine
like the sun
with beauty and strength
One day soon

Jerusalem’s joy will be known
Sooner than we can imagine

Jerusalem, take heart
Your deliverer is coming
Your deliverer is coming soon

Shabbat Shalom to all who are reading!

Dedicated to the sons of Zion, the inhabitants of Jerusalem, all of Israel and to all Jewish people everywhere.

Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem, may you prosper who love her. Tehillim/Psalm 122

Day 21: Wave

There is a storm of difficulty
Landing upon the Jewish people today
There is a wave of terror
that has crashed upon Israel

The rage within
is manifesting
and the hatred without
is making itself known

Yet this storm and this wave
are nothing compared to that
which will soon come

The one G-d will have his way
He will take care of the rage and hatred
Himself
All who rage against him
will soon bow before him
as his perfect storm
crushes death, darkness and hatred

This rage will end
This storm will cease
This wave will not
be the end
of Israel

G-d of Israel, please break in
Please renew strength
Please calm the storms within
Please have your way without
Please make yourself known
and bring your enemies low
before your feet

That all the wicked
may see you
and turn from their wicked ways
and glorify the Holy One of Israel

Please pray for the peace of Jerusalem and all Israel in these days of great difficulty. Tehillim/Psalm 122

Day 20: Temporary

One thing is sure
The G-d of Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps
and he does not forget his promises
and he cannot be unfaithful to his covenant of love

Israel’s momentary afflictions,
and turmoil
and difficulty
will cease

Israel’s future is bright
Jerusalem will shine
like a lamp that burns
with the salvation of her G-d
Zion will be bright with righteousness

All G-d said will be done
Nothing will stop what
The King of the universe,
The one G-d of heaven and earth
The one G-d of all creation will do

The Holy One of Israel
will keep his promises to Israel
He will finish what he started
with this people

G-d will see his people through
He will deliver Zion
Every word he spoke
will be completed

The earth will see
The deliverance of the sons of Zion

The creation awaits the day of Mashiach
All the sons of man will see
and know
and comprehend
when David’s son comes

All will see
and know
and glorify the Holy one of Israel

Wait,
with hope
and anticipation
and longing
for that day

For Zion’s sake I will not hold my peace, For Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a lamp that burns. Isaiah 62

Day 16: Green

As the Sabbath comes quickly
for the sons of Israel
May the green of new life spring forth
Despite the difficulty and darkness
Surrounding

O sons of Zion,
Run into the life
for which G-d created you
Find life in him

He is your life
and the length of your days

He is your hope
and your steadfast help

Despite the rage of darkness
and the apathy of the nations
The G-d of Israel is greater
He is higher

No matter who stands against you
Remember who is standing with you

He is your life, O Zion
He is the length of your days
Fall at his feet
in reverence
that the Holy One of Israel
May be exalted

Blessed are you,
O King of the universe
Who creates the fruit of the vine
and brings forth the bread from the earth

Shabbat Shalom, O Israel
May you enter into his shalom this day

A Time to Laugh, A Time to Weep

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 15: Laugh

There is a time to laugh and a time to weep,
a time to mourn and a time to dance
says the wise man

It is a time of weeping for many in Israel today
But may the G-d who is Zion’s comfort
Comfort Zion today

May the G-d who is the hope of Israel
Breathe hope into hearts today

May the G-d who is the Keeper of Israel,
Who neither slumbers nor sleeps
Keep his people today

As the nations rage against G-d
and against his people
and against everything good he gives freely
He is not moved
He laughs at the foolish desires of man
to enthrone themselves above him

Weeping and sorrow, loss and mourning,
Death, violence and injustice,
Darkness and rage
These will all see their final end
One day soon

Joy and life, hope and righteousness,
Justice, peace and goodness,
Light and love
will have their day in fullness
Sooner than we know

May our eyes be lifted to heaven
from where our help comes

May our voices cry out to G-d
who created Israel for himself
to keep Israel for himself

May our voices be heard
By the Holy One of Israel

May the Maker of the universe
preserve and protect life,
May he bring forth new life
May he stop death, terror and hatred
By his own hand for himself,
For his own name
that all may look to the one G-d
who gives all life
and gives every man breath

Surely G-d is Good to Israel

God is good to Israel

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 13: Patience

Wait on Adonai
He will renew your strength like eagles
Even the young men will faint
Yet he will renew your strength

The last ten days in Israel have been upsetting, heartbreaking, scandalous in many ways. If the violence and unleashed hatred wasn’t enough, the justification of such acts of terror by the international media and by “human rights” groups as well as the silence of many international leaders is staggering.

It is in these days that we must continue to hope and believe that G-d is truly good to Israel. G-d will surely keep his people and care for them in the midst of the desire of many to extinguish them, individually and corporately.

You only have to look at Arab media sources, especially Palestinian sources, to find the intense vile hatred continuously spewed by the political leaders and religious propagators of such dark abhorrence.

May these young men and women and children, who have been instructed to loathe the Jewish people by their leaders and to blame them for all their injustices, be touched and changed by the G-d of Israel.

May the Holy One of Israel who is the Keeper of Israel keep Israel today. May G-d push back the tide of darkness that ever hopes to destroy that which G-d himself has made and brought forth.

May G-d be praised today for surely he is good to Israel.

Truly God is good to Israel, to the pure of heart. Tehillim/Psalm 73

Day 12: Storm

As the storm rages
in the land of your inheritance
O My people
Lift your eyes to me
Lift your hearts to me
I am your help,
I am your keeper
I do not slumber nor sleep

Trust in me, O Israel
Turn your eyes to me, my beloved people
Run into my arms for safety and deliverance
Cry out to me in your difficulty
I will help you
I will keep you
I love you
I will preserve you
I will preserve your life from destruction

As the storm rages all around
Come to me
Find rest and safety in me
Find peace and hope in me
I am your safety
I am your hope

O Israel, run into me

I will lift my eyes to the hills, where does my help come from? My help comes from Adonai, Maker of heaven and earth. Tehillim/Psalm 121

Day 11: Rest

As death and terror rage against life
May the one and only G-d of life
Be made known
To the children of men

There is one G-d who creates all things
He has created all to love him and worship him
He has created
Those who love him and those who hate him

He wants that all would love him

He will have his way,
One day sooner than later
The Holy One of Israel, the one G-d
will have his way

Please protect and preserve life
In Israel today
Blessed be your name

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, may they prosper who love you.
