Weekly Prayer Points

 

Zion’s Voice meeting 23rd September 2022

 

1.   The Lord has appointed certain times of the year as special meeting times with His people (Leviticus 23). We are in the month of Elul, approaching the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh HaShannah/New Year), Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement) and Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles). Traditionally this has been a time for calling the Jewish people to reflection and repentance, shofars are sounded daily throughout Israel. This is a wonderful opportunity to pray that the Lord would meet in a new way with His people Israel. LORD, reveal Yourself to Your people. Put a hunger in Your people that they may cry out to You for truth. Blow the trumpet in Zion, (Joel 2:15-17). Lord, would You sound the trumpet during this season when each day the trumpet is sounded throughout the land, gathering Your people to You. And as they draw near to You, draw near and meet them. (James 4:8)

 

2.   The Feast of Trumpets -  Marked the beginning of ten days of consecration and repentance before God. The blast of the rams’ horn is, first of all, a CALL TO REPENTANCE!  At this time of year, Jewish people around the world, especially the Ultra-Orthodox, are contemplating whether their name will be inscribed in the Book of Life.  Traditional ceremonies of repentance, called tashlikh (meaning ‘to cast off’) are performed by throwing tiny pieces of white paper, representing their sins, into a large body of flowing water hopes that they can begin the year with a clean slate.  PRAY for a REVELATION of Yeshua, who TAKES AWAY the sins of the world, to the Jew first!  Only the LAMB can WASH us clean and make us WHITE as snow.  PRAY for the assurance of heart that everyone who places their faith in Him will surely be written in the Lamb’s Book of Life!   

 

3.   LORD, Pour out the gift of discernment on Your people so that they may know what is from You and what is not. Keep them alert. Help them to Test all things (1 Thessalonians 5:21). Equip the leaders of Your body to stand, to discern, to lead forward with renewed clarity of vision.

 

4.   Lord, wake up Your people throughout the world. Let them seeing the writing on the wall. Let them see the signs of the times and realize that Israel is their only home. Cause the anti-Semitism to prompt them to turn a vague intention to make Aliyah one day into a firm plan to book their tickets, pack their bags and come. Enable the Jews of Ukraine to flee. May they flee to Israel and not to anywhere else. Yeshua, Lord of Hosts, release angelic protection over this nation at this time (Daniel 12:1). 

 

5.   Give Israelis as much peace as possible before the elections. May many Israelis take this truth to heart: You will keep him in perfect peace (Shalom), whose mind is stayed on You; because he trusts in You. (Isaiah 26:3) LORD, we ask for not only a government through which God would be glorified, but also the government that Israel needs to face the challenges that are lined up on the horizon. Abba, You promised to give us good leaders when we returned from exile (Isaiah 1:26; Jeremiah 3:15; 23:3-4; Ezekiel 34:1-31). As it says, you have not because you ask not, (James 4:2b), we simply ask for the government of Your perfect will.

 

6.    As we move deeper into these final days, the pressure on the Body - especially those who are His watchmen on Jerusalem's walls - will increase. Lord, encourage us all that You are searching for us to enable You to deal with mercy on our nations. I sought for a man among them who should wall up a wall for the land, and stand in the gap before Me, that I should not destroy it. But I did not find one. Therefore I have poured out My fury on them. I have burned them up with the fire of My wrath…says the Lord YHWH. (Ezekiel 22:30-31). Strengthen us to know in faith that we are doing Your will - even if with our sight we do not see the results yet (2 Corinthians 5:7). Reread Luke 18:1-8, and realize that in context, that which Yeshua is questioning is whether there will be any who persist in pray when He returns!

 

7.   During the High Holiday services, speak to the Jews in exile that 'Next year in Jerusalem', means them and their families. For Your glory's sake, bring Your people back to Your land (Isaiah 43:5-7).
