To the ONE TRUE GOD –ADONAI ECHAD on behalf of all your Jewish Friends.
LORD …We thank you for being the God, who is knowable, and extends mercy and grace to all who humbly approach your throne in prayer.
We thank you for the gathering of family during this holiday that celebrates the miracle of light.
Lord you have called us throughout history to remember you and your mighty works among the Jewish people recorded in the Old Testament.
So we thank you for Chanukah, a special time of remembering the story of the Maccabees, for whom you performed the miracle of lights.
We also remember that centuries before the Maccabees were born, at the exact time of Chanukah, Solomon’s Temple was dedicated to the Holy One of Israel and the light of your Shekinah glory, came to be with your people Israel.
Your Glory, the very presence of your light shining from within the Holy of Holies, above the Ark of the Covenant.
But most of all, we thank you for the words that you breathed into the mouth of the prophet Isaiah in Ch. 52 vs. 13 thru Ch. 53 vs. 12. Your own words spoken; 700 years before the Messiah was born, describing your Son Jesus who came to walk among His people as the Messiah, the GOD/man, the Son of David.
In Isaiah, YOUR OWN WORDS described the Death of your SON, HIS Resurrection and HIS Return in EXALTATION as the King of Kings.
We also thank you for Your words in the Book of Zachariah about the FACT… that in the near future you will grant Salvation to only 1/3 rd of the Nation of Israel as they “Look upon HIM WHOM THEY HAVE PIERCED.” as YESHUA comes back the same way He left this earth and sets His Feet on the Mt. of Olives.
So we thank you for the light of the coming Messiah and Look Forward to the One the prophet Isaiah said would come to save the Lost and be a light to all the nations of the earth.
Jesus the promised Redeemer from ages past, that would come at the appointed time to bring final ETERNAL peace to this world.
I pray that the Light of the Coming Messiah will shine forth like a PILLAR of FIRE and open the hearts and the minds of your people called ISRAEL.
