Comfort Zion

140702 Zion Mourns

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.

Writing with sorrow over the last week of increased terror and loss of life in Israel.

Day 10: Ready

O G-d, how can I not weep
when your child Israel weeps
How can my heart be unmoved
when your people are weeping and mourning
What do you feel when Israel weeps

How can my heart be cold
when your heart burns
with love for your ancient people

G-d, are you mourning now
as your people mourn
How can I stand at a distance
when your firstborn son is hurting
How can I stand at a distance when Israel mourns

G-d, where your people feel forsaken,
where they feel forgotten
or fatherless
Please bridge this gap
Please let them know
You are still with them
You’ve always been with them

Abba, your people are my people
May your people run into your heart
and find life in you
May your people know you are Father
Draw your people into
the deep depths of your kindness
Heal those with broken hearts
Comfort those in mourning
Please console Zion today

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, may they prosper who love you.
Excerpt from Tehillim/Psalm 122

If I forget Jerusalem may my right hand forget its skill
Excerpt from Tehillim/Psalm 137
