From Claudia in Jerusalem (on Saturday October 4):
“Abba, Father, today for the Jews it is Yom Kippur. It is the Day of Atonement. The day set aside to “afflict the soul,” to atone for the sins of the past year.
Business is still in Israel. People are happily walking on the open streets to their synagogues. Many are dressed in white, which represents purity. It is the custom for the emulation of ministering angels. This day, Father they are looking to repentance and forgiveness of sin, without knowing Your Son. The Son of the God of Israel, Yeshua, the Messiah.
You are the atonement for the sins of the world. The One who bore our affliction, gave Your blood for our sins of yesterday, today and forever. The One who is the Angel of the Lord, who makes His angel’s spirits, and His ministers a flame of fire. Son of David, You who look on Your own to make them Your inheritance of Salvation. Messiah, You who are unfailing love. You who were wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities. You who took the chastisement for our peace and took the strips for our healing. You who send us to Israel to cry out Your Name amidst Your own. Yeshua, save your people we cry! You who are waiting for Your people to cry out and shout for You, who are the good tidings. Do you not say to Zion to get thee up into the high mountain, to Jerusalem, lift up her voice with strength, to lift it up and not be afraid, and to Judah, to cry out, Behold Your God!”
“And I will pour on the house of David
and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem
the Spirit of grace and supplication;
then they will look on Me whom they
pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him
as one mourns for his only son, and
grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.”
Thank you for joining me in prayer for Jerusalem on September first in our 911 urgent prayer initiative. Those of you who prayed are familiar with my heart’s cry for the city, the people, and the land that Jesus loves.
But I’m not familiar with your heart’s cry for Jerusalem. What is it?
Would you share your own prayer below?
Then would you continue to pray until our prayers are confirmed, and we are assured God has heard and has answered our prayers? For the glory of His great name. And may God bless you as you bless His Land and His people.
