We are in shock concerning the brutal attack on Israel by the radical Muslims in Hamas. The hatred this organization has for the Jewish nation is horrifying. Yet we believe for the Lord’s promises to protect Israel to be fulfilled. For those of you who would like some guidelines on what to lift up before Almighty God, here is a prayer. You can use these words directly, or simply use the ideas for the basis of your own prayer. Either way, you’ll be taking a stand for the righteousness of the Lord to prevail.
Strengthen the remnant to bring the love of Yeshua to the suffering and brokenhearted in Israel. Strengthen our brothers and sisters as they struggle to overcome the horrors of this sudden and brutal war. Strengthen the Messianic Remnant in Israel to stand for victory of good over evil and light over darkness.
Now More Than Ever Is The Time To Stand With The People Of Israel. Help Us Rush Emergency Aid To The Families Across Israel And Soldiers On The Front Line. Since 2000, Joseph Project has distributed over $150 million in humanitarian aid to those in Israel who are most in need.
The Aaronic Blessing, so named because the Lord told Moses in Numbers 6:22/23 to instruct his brother Aaron and his sons to pray it. Aaron was Israel’s first high priest, thus the prayer is often called the Priestly Blessing.
May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May the Lord make His face shine upon you
and be gracious unto you.
May the Lord lift up His countenance upon you
and grant you peace.
In the Name of Jesus our Messiah.
In the picture, Ted Simon demonstrates the hand formation often used when praying the Aaronic Blessing. The blessor will separate his fingers in a kind of v shape to represent the Hebrew letter shin , the first letter in one of the names of God, Shaddai, meaning Almighty. This hand configuration was made popular in the TV series Star Trek by Leonard Nimoy, a Jewish actor portraying the Vulcan character Mr. Spock.
Typically, the rabbi or the cantor will chant the blessing with his arms raised and extended toward the congregation. This is exemplified in Leviticus 9:22, “Then Aaron lifted his hand toward the people, blessed them, and came down from offering the sin offering.”
