Day 5 of Seven Ways You Can Pray for Israel
Pray for the relationship between the chosen people and the Gentiles, whom God calls to "step into the story."
Isaiah 49:22: “See, I will beckon to the Gentiles, I will lift up my banner to the peoples; they will bring your sons in their arms and carry your daughters on their shoulders.”
We are invited to be part of God’s story! We have the opportunity to bridge the seemingly unbridgeable gap between Jew and Gentile, to love God’s chosen people just as God does. There are many organizations and ministries reaching out to the Jewish community, eager to learn about our Jewish roots and wanting to bless Israel and her people in practical and spiritual ways.
Dear Father, You have called the Jewish people “the apple” of Your eye. May we see Israel through Your eyes and love Your children as brothers and sisters of the Savior we love. May we do this with humility and respect toward the people through whom You have chosen to accomplish Your purposes on earth.
