JEWISH PRAYERS,FASTING &

declarations THE NEXT 48 HOURS 

Why Prayer for Repentance and Restoration

ROMANS 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

Hebrews 4:16  Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Matthew 6:8  Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. 9  After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10  Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11  Give us this day our daily bread. 12  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Fasting Leads to Greater Intimacy & Breakthrough

We deny our carnal nature in order to fulfill the desires of God. What He wills for our lives can be found through fasting and prayer. Our spirit and soul experiences joy because of fasting. It’s a decision to momentarily die to our flesh to fulfill the greater things of a mighty God who seeks us. “The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast in that day, {Mark 2:20}.

As a family of Faith we will start fasting and praying Tuesday and Wednesday. Ending the fast on Wednesday night celebrating and thanking God for the 7 Blessings that we will experience in this next season and new year!

 

Rosh Hashanah

2019: Sundown on Sept. 19 until nightfall on Oct.1

The Beginning Of The Year or The Jewish New Year

 

Why is this Significant for Believers? Rosh Hashanah is referred to by the Talmud as “the Day of Judgement.”  The Talmud explains that all of the Almighty’s creations are judged annually on this day.  For that reason it is customary to examine one’s ways and work on self-growth in preparation for Rosh Hashanah.  Why does the Almighty judge the world and why is it important that we know about it?  Imagine what your finances (business, personal, or both) would look like if you didn’t have annual accounting responsibilities.  Our spiritual balance sheet would be similarly imbalanced without an annual accounting and spiritual inventory to be sure that we are on, or that we switch to, the right track.

 

Yom Kippur

2019: Sundown on Oct. 8 until nightfall on Oct. 9

It is a day that true self-improvement and self-growth is most easily achieved.  Think of it as a 25 hour total spiritual detox!  The Torah teaches that when we make positive choices and do mitzvahs we improve spiritually.  We are elevated and we elevate the world around us.  When we make poor choices, we experience a spiritual decline that hinders our ability to perform and feel spiritually positive things.  G-d did not create us as perfect beings and understands that we will slip. Therefore, the Almighty gives us a gift of Yom Kippur: The Day of Atonement.  A day where we confront our errors, feel remorse, and resolve to improve.  

 

Members Action: Beyond specific actions, like praying and fasting for the next 48 hours. Understand Yom Kippur is dedicated to introspection and asking God for forgiveness. Even during the breaks between working since everyone cannot take off during this week, it is appropriate to recite Psalms at every available moment.

Then the congregants erupt in joyous songs and dance (praises and singing a Chabad custom), after which a single blast is blown on the shofar, followed by the proclamation, and declaring the 7 Blessings over our lives for“Next year.” Then break your fast by partaking of a festive after-fast meal, making the evening after Yom Kippur a yom tov (festival) in its own right.

PRAYING THESE PRAYERS WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!

The following are some of the central prayers and blessings within Judaism and Messianic Judaism.

 

The Shema

 

Yeshua mentioned the Shema when referencing the greatest commandment. While it is not literally a prayer or a blessing, the Shema (Sheh-MAH) is the heart and soul of Jewish prayer. It is the declaration of faith for Jewish people. The entire Shema contains three parts: Deuteronomy 6:4‒9, Deuteronomy 11:13‒21, and Numbers 15:37‒41. The first portion includes the Shema and the V’ahavta (V’ah-HAHV-tah).

 

Shema means “hear, listen,” and is the first word of Deuteronomy 6:4. The Shema is spoken at least twice a day by observant Jews, at morning and evening services. Many Jewish people also say it at night before going to bed.

 

The Shema Prayer

Hear O Israel! The Lord our God, the Lord is One.

Blessed is the name of His glorious kingdom for all eternity.

Recite the following verse in an undertone:

Blessed be the name of the glory of His kingdom forever and ever.

 

You shall love the L-rd your G‑d with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might. And these words which I command you today shall be upon your heart. You shall teach them thoroughly to your children, and you shall speak of them when you sit in your house and when you walk on the road, when you lie down and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign upon your hand, and they shall be for a reminder between your eyes. And you shall write them upon the doorposts of your house and upon your gates.

 

And it will be, if you will diligently obey My commandments which I enjoin upon you this day, to love the L-rd your G‑d and to serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul, I will give rain for your land at the proper time, the early rain and the late rain, and you will gather in your grain, your wine and your oil. And I will give grass in your fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be sated. Take care lest your heart be lured away, and you turn astray and worship alien gods and bow down to them. For then the L-rd's wrath will flare up against you, and He will close the heavens so that there will be no rain and the earth will not yield its produce, and you will swiftly perish from the good land which the L-rd gives you. Therefore, place these words of Mine upon your heart and upon your soul, and bind them for a sign on your hand, and they shall be for a reminder between your eyes. You shall teach them to your children, to speak of them when you sit in your house and when you walk on the road, when you lie down and when you rise. And you shall inscribe them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates - so that your days and the days of your children may be prolonged on the land which the L-rd swore to your fathers to give to them for as long as the heavens are above the earth.

 

The L-rd spoke to Moses, saying: Speak to the children of Israel and tell them to make for themselves fringes on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and to attach a thread of blue on the fringe of each corner. They shall be to you as tzizit, and you shall look upon them and remember all the commandments of the L-rd and fulfill them, and you will not follow after your heart and after your eyes by which you go astray - so that you may remember and fulfill all My commandments and be holy to your G‑d. I am the L-rd your G‑d who brought you out of the land of Egypt to be your G‑d; I, the L-rd, am your G‑d. True.

 

V’ahavta (Veeya-HAV-tah)

 

Yeshua also referred to the first verse of the V’ahavta in the context of being part of the greatest commandment (Matthew 22:36‒38). The V’ahavta is found in Deuteronomy 6:5‒9. The Jewish customs of tefillin (the-fih-LEEN) and mezuzot (meh-ZOO-zot) grew out of obedience to the commands of God contained within the V’ahavta.

V’ahavta Prayer

 

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart with all your soul and with all your might. And these words which I command you today shall be on your heart.

And you shall teach them to your children, and speak of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down and when you rise up.

You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and to be as frontlets between your eyes. And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

 

Aleinu

 

The Aleinu (Ah-LAY-noo) is a prayer recited near the end of every Jewish prayer service. The word “aleinu” means “it is our duty to praise.” The prayer directs the congregants’ hearts to their responsibility as Jewish people ‒ whom God chose and set apart ‒ to praise Him as the Master of all. It expresses gratitude for God’s covenant with the Jewish people and highlights His worthiness of all praise.

 

The Aleinu also looks ahead to the Messianic Age when God restores all things and when “every knee will bow” to Him. Those in Messianic Judaism hear the echo of these same words used by the apostle Paul in referring to Yeshua (Philippians 2:10.)

 

Aleinu Prayer

 

It is incumbent upon us to praise the Master of all the great I AM, to exalt the Creator of the world, for He has made us separate from the nations and unique among the families of the earth. Our destiny is not like theirs; our calling is our task.

 

We bow down and acknowledge before the King of Kings that there is none like Him. For He stretched forth the heavens like a tent and established the earth. Truly there is none like our Lord and King.

 

As the Torah says, “you shall know this day and reflect in your heart that it is the Lord who is God in the heavens above and on the earth beneath, there is none else.”

We hope, O Lord our God, to soon behold Your majestic glory when all abominations shall be removed and all false gods shall be at an end.

 

Then shall the world be perfected under the rule of the Lord Almighty and all mankind shall call upon Your name. For to You every knee must bow and every tongue declare that You are God.

 

Reign over us soon and forever. May the kingdom of David’s greater son be established forever. For then shall the words be fulfilled, “the Lord shall be King forever,” and “The Lord shall be King over all the earth; on that day, the Lord shall be One, and His name One.”

 

Mourner’s Kaddish

 

The Mourner’s Kaddish (KAH-dish) was not originally written for mourners but later became the traditional prayer to recite after losing a loved one. Surprisingly, it is not a prayer seeking comfort from God. Instead, it praises God acknowledging His greatness and sovereignty. The fact that this particular prayer was adopted for mourning speaks volumes of the Jewish heart of worship and understanding that God deserves our constant praise, even in the midst of loss and suffering. Congregants within Messianic Judaism also embrace the practice of saying the Kaddish when grieving a death.

 

The Mourner’s Kaddish Prayer

 

Glorified and sanctified be His great name in the world which He created according to His will. May He establish His kingdom during your lifetime and during the lifetime of all the house of Israel, speedily, yes soon; and say, amen.

 

May His great name be blessed forever and forever eternally.

 

Blessed and praised, glorified and exalted, extolled and honored, adored and lauded be the name of the Holy One. Blessed be He who is high above, far above all blessings and hymns and praises and consolations which are spoken in the world; and say, amen.

May there be great peace from heaven and life for us and for all Israel; and say, amen.

He who makes peace in the heavenly realms, may He make peace for us and for all Israel; and say, amen.

A Prayer for Repentance and Restoration

Lord Jesus, I’m tired of the sin struggle in my life. I feel distant from You. My choices have not led me into the right places. I’ve listened to the whispers of my enemy instead of Your words in Scripture, and the result has been disastrous.

I once walked with you, my heart tender to Your leading. Yet little by little, I exchanged Your truths for temptations and deceit that led me away from You. Instead of taking thoughts captive and confessing them immediately, I allowed them to grow totally out of control. Repentance was not in my vocabulary. Blame, cover-ups, or trying to reason and rationalize sin never work. They only give birth to deeper sin entanglements.

You created me in Your own image, Lord. You know my thoughts before I speak them. You x-ray my heart and see through my excuses and intentions. Your Spirit warned me, but I ignored You. Disappointment and discouragement have taken their toll on me.

So today, I’m confessing my desperate need for You. You have promised that if we will confess our sin, You will forgive us and make us clean again. Lord, I truly need Your forgiveness. Repentance is on my heart and lips. I want to turn around and head another direction—back to You, Lord. But I need Your help.

Just as You created the world out of nothing, Lord, create a clean heart out of my “nothingness.” You paid for my sin with your own death. Restore my life and the fellowship we once shared together. You don’t condemn me, and You won’t disown me; I am Your child forever. But I take all the blame—I own my own sin. I am the one who broke fellowship with You and am crushed over the way I treated You and Your name.

Lord, root out the darkness and light up my life with Your holy presence. Help me understand what went wrong. Show me how my destructive patterns first began. What did I allow to become more important than loving and honoring You? Why did I seek satisfaction in others or other things than You? You are the only One Who provides all my needs. You fill up the soul with deep down joy and peace beyond all understanding.

Lord, may your restoration include new boundaries around my life. I can’t flirt with sin and not be hurt. In restoring me, teach me how to say no again to things which could harm myself or my testimony. If my actions have wounded others, show me where and to whom I need to ask forgiveness or how to make amends. Help me to surround myself with positive encouragers who will hold me accountable and who will speak the truth in love. Truly, shame melts away and we are healed when we confess to others and ask for their help.

I understand that my repentance won’t eliminate the consequences of my sin. Knowing that You don’t hold our sins to our account—You remember them no more--and that You place them as far as the east is from the west both humbles me and fills me with amazement and gratitude. No consequence could ever be as painful as knowing how my sin hurt You or how You suffered for me out of love. Your crucifying death gave me eternal life with You. Lord, You place grace next to my regrets and give me hope for a new future.

Thank You, Lord, that sin does not disqualify us. Instead, like a runner who has fallen but who gets up again, I, too, am willing to start again and finish the race You have set for me.  

With Your restoration, Lord, perhaps I can help others find their way back to You again. I will not give my enemy the victory. Instead, I will accept Yours. Instead of a meltdown, with Your help I will allow Your Spirit to give me a hot heart for You, one that seeks You and wants to live for You the rest of my life. Thank You, Jesus, for Your sweet forgiveness and promised restoration.

The Seven Blessings to Declare “Adapted from Deena Metzger”

 

  • Blessed is the one who created the fruit of the vine. Bless the two of you who come out of long traditions of struggling to find out what it is to be human. May you be full of the wine of life. May the life force and the knowledge of the human heart always be with you.

  • Blessed is the One. All creation mirrors your splendor and reflects your radiance. Bless the two of you. May the two of you know that all beauty comes from the Great Heart, and may you always live in its radiance.

  • Blessed is the one who created human beings. Bless the two of you. May you know it all–joy and struggle, beauty and sorrow, sweat, tears, solitude, companionship, laughter and ecstasy. May your marriage be strong enough to support you to experience whatever you must as you come to know yourselves and each other and to discover the entire range of your humanity in the process of soul making.

  • Blessed is the one who created Woman and Man in the divine image, so we may live, love and perpetuate life. Bless the two of you. May you delight in the wonder and impossibility of the fact that you are so similar and so different–may the difficulty and enormous pleasure of being a man and woman continually fascinate and engage you and be the source of your bonding.

  • Blessed is the one who brings people together and unites the divided. In joy we have come to witness this marriage of many cultures. It is said that everyone gets married at a wedding. Bless the two of you who bring us together through your union today.

  • Blessed is the one who rejoices that the love between this woman and this man is as the very first love in the Garden. Bless the two of you who recreate the world for us and for yourselves. May your love be as old and as new as the first love, and may you also bring new life, in all its forms, into the world.

  • Blessed is the creation of joy and celebration, lover and beloved, gladness and jubilation, pleasure and delight, love and solidarity, friendship and peace. Soon may we hear in the streets of the city and the paths of the fields the voice of joy, the voice of gladness, the voice of lover, the voice of beloved, the triumphant voice of lovers from the canopy and the voice of youths from their feasts of song. Blessed is the joy of lovers, one with another.
