Prayer Points August 2019 – Ninth of Av

Prayer for the Ninth of Av                                                                    

The Ninth of Av, a day of fasting, prayer and mourning, is the culmination of Three Weeks, called Between the Straits. It occurs this year between 17th of Tamuz (July 20) to Ninth of Av (August 11). The Hebrew Scriptures indicate these particular weeks reflect a season of heightened spiritual warfare or judgment, or both. Throughout Jewish history devastating tragedies have happened during this three-week period.  A small sample: destruction of both Temples; multiple conquests of Jerusalem; dispersion of the Jewish people; WWI begins; deportations from Warsaw Ghetto to the Treblinka concentration camp begins during WWII; and in 1994, the bombing of the Jewish community center in Argentina. According to rabbinic tradition, Israel’s recurring calamities on these days trace to these root sins of rebellion and unbelief when the Israelite’s lost hope to enter the Promised Land due to the spies’ bad report.

Numbers 14:39 ─ “When Moses told these words to all the people of Israel, the people mourned greatly.”


  • The Holy Spirit will comfort all who mourn, especially Holocaust survivors who have first-hand experience of several tragedies
  • Repentance for rebellion and unbelief in the nation and individually
  • Removal of any fear a catastrophe might occur during this period
  • Protection around Messianic congregations also observing the Ninth of Av
