Tehillim 130/Psalm 130

Psalm 130

A Song of Ascents.
Out of the depths I cry to You, Adonai!
Lord, hear my voice!
Let Your ears be attentive
to the sound of my supplications.
If You, Adonai, should mark iniquities—
O Lord, who could stand?
For with You there is forgiveness,
that You may be feared.
I wait for Adonai, my soul waits,
and in His word I hope.
My soul waits for my Lord,
more than those who watch for the morning,
yes, more than watchmen wait for the morning.
O Israel, hope in Adonai.
For with Adonai there is lovingkindness and mercy,
and with Him is abundant redemption,
and He will redeem Israel from all its iniquities.

שִׁ֥יר הַֽמַּעֲל֑וֹת מִמַּעֲמַקִּ֖ים קְרָאתִ֣יךָ יְהוָֽה׃
אֲדֹנָי֮ שִׁמְעָ֪ה בְק֫וֹלִ֥י תִּהְיֶ֣ינָה אָ֭זְנֶיךָ קַשֻּׁב֑וֹת לְ֝ק֗וֹל תַּחֲנוּנָֽי׃

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

Perhaps

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 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

Do Not Be Silent

6561875099791640360no - 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 24: Silence

When the poor suffers
The peoples cry out
When injustice is prevalent on every side
Nations lift their voices
Yet when Israel suffers,
the world is eerily silent

Every time
in
Every generation
when Jews suffer
those standing against injustice
fall strangely silent

Every generation
when Jews suffer
the blame games begin
The lies of Jew hatred are told

Another generation
of the descendants
of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob suffer loss

So few care
And so many justify
This vile loathing

Over and over and over again
Hatred of Israel rises and falls

Today Jew hatred
is rising again
A tide of anti-Semitism
is slowly overtaking
and we must fight back

We cannot remain silent
We cannot stick our heads in the mud
or cover our eyes and ears
and ignore Israel’s situation

A Jewish nation is treated
as Jews have been treated
Over and over again

This hatred is the same
and we must stand against it
with our voices, our actions
and our lives

Join those who are awake
and willing to stand
on Israel’s behalf

Awaiting David’s Son

IMG_0645

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 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

Life over death

1144103-bigthumbnail

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.

Please pray for life to be preserved among all types of people in Israel. Every life has invaluable worth because of G-d who gives life.

Day 19: Honor

In these days when the fight
against life in Israel
is so strong
Let us honor life
Let us honor the G-d who brings forth life

The one G-d is the giver of life
The one G-d is the creator of life
He is the one G-d and he is the G-d of Israel
There is no other G-d who creates
There is no G-d who breathes breath
into humanity
and humanity is sustained
and upheld

May life win over death today
May light overcome the insidious darkness
May love be known as greater and stronger than hate

May the G-d of all life
Release breath and spirit life today

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.

If I forget Jerusalem may my right hand forget its skill

Love = Do Not Be Silent

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 7: Love

How can we stand with
and love the people of Israel
in these days and this time?

How can we NOT BE SILENT
as the majority were
just seventy years ago

We must lift our voices
We must cry out
We must sound the trumpet

In these days, in this time
We cannot stand and watch
anti-Semitism go unopposed
It is not an option to be SILENT yet again

May many in this generation lift our voices
with and on behalf of Zion,
Jerusalem, the Jewish people

May we make a choice and do what is right
May we be righteous in the sight of G-d and man
May we stand with Zion and Jerusalem
and Israel in days of crisis
and tell them
Love, life, hope and deliverance are coming for Zion
and all Israel
