Our Father in Heaven, thank-you for your goodness and long-suffering to your people Israel. You have sent the Holy Spirit to the world to convict of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. Sin is not believing in Your Son, Yeshua, as the Messiah. Our people still harden their hearts and stubbornly stiffen their necks against the truth of the gospel, despite all that we have done till now.
The New Covenant in the blood of Yeshua is the basis for the promise that You will save the full remnant of your people, as you have promised in many ways and places throughout the Scriptures, by forgiving their sins.
Act on behalf of your holy Name’s sake to show to the Jewish people everywhere in the world, and to the enemies of Israel round about Israel and anywhere else, that there is still a God in Israel! Why should the nations say, Where is your God?! Put Your fear in your own beloved people, and in those who would seek her destruction, that they would fear YEHOVAH, the God of Israel, God Most High. Break the pride in Your chosen people regarding their being chosen as the first-born among the nations. Bring them to see the futility of trying to justify themselves by their own works, rather than returning in humble confession to You in the way You have provided. In wrath, remember mercy, O God!
Until the fullness of Gentiles comes in, You say that Israel will remain partially blinded. Save more, and more, and more individual Israeli Jewish people now, Lord, until that day. Save more of the Gentiles, especially round about Israel — the Arabs, Muslims — to bring us closer to that day when all Israel will be saved! Give them a new heart, a new spirit through their repentance and faith in the gospel, that they would provoke Israel to jealousy and show mercy to Israel, rather than seek vengeance and her destruction.
Bring more Israelis to repentance for their unfaithfulness against You and Your covenant with them, in their heart’s desire to be like the Gentiles, a thing which You say will not be! Work, LORD, for Your holy Name’s sake, through all the political power struggles and religious corruption that more and more of your people would become fed up with being like the Gentiles, who lord it over one another, and would begin to return to You; for You, YHVH God, to be King over them once again; for Your Kingdom to come — Your righteousness and Your true peace.
Act on behalf of your holy Name’s sake within the Body of Messiah here in Israel, that You would break through the impasse preventing us from going on in the truth of the one new man, in spiritual unity in love and in truth, that our testimony would be faithful to the truth of Your love and grace to us who believe in Jesus, whom You sent. We plead, our Father, that our people would see something GOOD within the congregation and life of believers, that would draw them towards You. . .and You would run towards them.
Act, O Lord, for Your Name’s sake, that believers would feel the need for You, Lord Jesus, to come back, and that the Jewish people would begin to cry out, Blessed is He who comes in the name of YEHOVAH! Let them see Him whom they have pierced, and afflict their souls in mourning for all their hatred without a cause towards Him — even as we have by Your lovingkindness. Take away the curse out of their mouths, and bring them to call upon the only Savior: Blessed are You, Lord Yeshua! And heal them, and cleanse them — the people whom You love, and have chosen to be Your holy people, and for Yeshua to be the King of Israel, King of the Jews.
Thank-you, Father, for Your faithfulness, in Yeshua’s name. Amen.
O, Maker of peace in the high places, (Oseh shalom bam’romim,
You will make peace upon us, (Ata ta’aseh shalom aleinu,
and upon all of Israel. (ve’al kol Israel
And all say, say Amen. (Ve’imru, imru Amen.
Make peace, make peace, (Ta’aseh shalom, ta’aseh shalom,
Peace upon us, and upon all Israel! (Shalom aleinu, ve’al kol Israel!)
