September 2018 Prayer Points
Elul, the last month of the Jewish year, is traditionally a time to review one’s deeds and spiritual progress over the past year and prepare for the upcoming “Days of Awe” of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. High Holy Day season (the days run from sunset to sunset.):
- Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets-Sept 9)
- Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement-Sept 18)
- Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles-Sept 23 to Sept 30)
“In that day a spring will be opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem to cleanse them from sin and impurity. They will call on My Name and I will answer them. I will say, ‘They are My people,’ and they will answer, ‘Adonai is my God.’”– Zechariah 13:1, 9b TLV
PRAYER: Lord, during the remaining days of Elul before the High Holy Day season, let the cry of repentance reach Your ears. Please remove the veil covering eyes and soften hearts so Jewish people will recognize Messiah Yeshua. Adonai, You are their God.
Remember teachers and those working with students to provide education, protection and support for children.
“Hear my voice, God, as I plead: preserve my life from fear of the enemy. Hide me from the secret intrigues of the wicked and the open insurrection of evildoers. They sharpen their tongues like a sword; they aim their arrows, poisoned words, in order to shoot from cover at the innocent, shooting suddenly and fearing nothing.” – Psalm 64:2-4 CJB
PRAYER: Lord, in these days of mounting disturbances involving schools and students, give protection and courage to students, their parents, and teachers. Silence the taunts of bullies. Soften the hearts of those bent on evil, delivering them from the darkness of the enemy. Cover school campuses and all those who enter with Your shalom and protection.
The increase globally of anti-Semitism correlates to the increase of Jewish people coming into relationship with Messiah.
“Teach me your way, Adonai; lead me on a level path because of my enemies — don’t give me up to the whims of my foes; for false witnesses have risen against me, also those who are breathing violence.” – Psalm 27:11-12 CJB
PRAYER: Lord, strengthen the hearts of Messianic believers to trust you. Prepare them to be witnesses of Messiah to the world. Be their Provider. Surround with protection. Confront and convict those who would want to harm Jewish people or hamper their businesses/employment through BDS and bringing them to a place of repentance and a right relationship with You. Only You Lord hold the keys to defeat anti-Semitism.
