Father, the jews and israelites out in Israel and where they are worship in mind and in deed.
I sit watching the worship that goes on out there at the still standing wall - western wall - the last wall the jews have left of Solomon's temple. It is sacred ground and a place of deep divinity and worship and thanksgiving and praise.
This place is alive with worship out in Kotel. It is also called the 'wailing wall' as the children, men and women out there pray incessantly and thank always.
They also gesture continually with their entire bodies using heads, arms and legs to bend, kneel, bow, beckon You and call for Your return, their Messiah. And they mean it - they seriously cry out in public for Your return. I add my petition to theirs - come back, Christ. Miss You. Need You. Want You. Love You.
When I stop to consider the past they have endured and the present sufferings because of others' sins; my heart goes out to them. They are the meaning of the commandment; forgive and seek peace. Great is their faithfulness.
I am in awe and wonder of their worship. All hours, day and night, out they are showing such honour and respect and foregoing sitting in the comfort of their homes - as I do sitting here in the warmth, peace and quiet looking at them. I pray over them giving thanks and praise and asking for Your blessings of peace and joy and comfort to be with them. Asking You to bless them over and above their needs. Praising them for their faithfulness and endurance, patience and petitions. Staring at them looking at how sacred they are and all for You, Saviour and Father. Grant them peace and Grace please. Thank You. Amen.
Their worship is all day and night in their minds but in their daily deeds and in daily, very physical, worship style and ways of dignity, integrity and decency. It is unique. It is wonderful.
They train their children in the way they should go - Yours - and follow Your Word to the letter. Their shabbat adherences are incredible and i can only look on in amazement and admiration.
It is written in Psalm 117;
Praise the Lord, all you nations; extol Him, all you peoples.
For great is His love towards us
and the faithfulness of the Lord endures for ever.
Praise the Lord.
Father and Christ, Oh that I could show my worship as You would have me. I bless their faithfulness and endurance and as it is written would bless them with the safe knowledge that 'Your LOVE for them endures forever and their love HAS endured for you forever and for all, including me. Give them strength and hope please, Lord. Make Your light shine among them and let them rejoice under reverence under You, their great and faithful God who will restore them and reward them and they shall be esteemed and should be now by us. Their commitment is exemplary and well known around the world. The wickedness against THEM is also known by You, God and any who persecute them are also persecuting Your beloved Son and so are asked to stop and stop wanting to sin against God and start believing in better - love and peace and joy and blessings again instead of curses for this serious disobedience. Belong again and be blessed again. God, bless the jews and israelites indeed and keep evil from them by covering them with the covenant Christ won for them - Your Grace through Your Holy Spirit out there now and always. Thank You - God of Israel. Amen.
