Will you watch for an hour? – day 23

Abba’s Heartbeat for Israel

31 Days edit big

Today’s Prompt: Look

Will you watch for an hour?

What are you looking for, friend?
What are you looking to find?
If you’re looking
and you’re seeking
and you’re knocking
and you’re asking
I’ll tell you something
You’re going to find
Yes, you will find what you’re looking for
This is what He promised to His sons and daughters

I was looking for His heart
and I ran straight into Israel
I was looking for His desire
and His desire for Jerusalem brought me nearer
I wanted fellowship and partnership with G-d
He shared with me that which He greatly longs for
Israel, Jerusalem, Zion’s destiny

He said, “Will you pray with Me?
Will you watch with Me?
I long for Jerusalem.
Israel is My inheritance.”

I answered, “Yes!”
And His heart, His desire, His longing
Have laid hold of me
And I will never be the same again
For Zion’s sake, For Jerusalem’s sake
I will not stop crying out

For Day 19 You are the G-d of restoration http://wp.me/p3vZRl-7m

Please bring redemption to Jerusalem
Please raise up a people who love You and love Your people

Abba, raise up friends of Your heart
Raise up ones filled with Your love,
Your Spirit, Your comfort
Abba, raise up a people who love
beyond themselves
Who live in the testimony of who You are,
Who long for Your heart’s desire for Israel

the labor of His soul

Praying with G-d for the brokenhearted ones
Laboring with the holy One on behalf of the afflicted
Toiling that one may find life eternal, and now

The labor of love
A life given, not taken
The labor of His soul shall be satisfied
The people of His heart
and the people of His blood
Not forgotten,
Not forsaken

The people He came from
Unaware of all He did, and all He said
but mostly unaware of His great love for them
Rejected, left alone, not cared for

O Abba,
May the heart cries of Your firstborn throughout the ages come up
to Your ears and bring hope and life eternal back down to their hearts

O Abba,
May the labor of His soul be satisfied

O Abba,
May Your heart’s desire for the people of Israel be made known

The labor of love
The desire of Your heart
to say to all who are thirsty, “Come!”
That the living water of life be poured out
May the light be shed abroad in the heart of Israel today

For Zion’s sake I will not be silent
For Jerusalem’s sake I will not hold My peace
Until her righteousness goes forth as brightness
and her salvation as a lamp that burns 1

Zion, Jerusalem, Israel
Come home
Draw Near
He waits for You

Today’s Prompt: New

Awakened Heart

I continued my journey. It was exhilarating yet heartbreaking at times. Yet I could not go back. I had entered into a deep precious place with my Father. He had invited me in to a new place I hadn’t known before. In the midst of a most difficult season in life, He invited me in to something precious to His heart.

Israel – a people, a son, a child, one He still longed for

Step by step, day by day,
My heart began to open, and see words and stories and ideas,
And a thread woven in and out and through the pages
Of the divine story
I had read many times before,
Yet never seeing what I began to see
As this new day unfolded before me
And my heart fell in love once again

I had run into the heart of my good, good Father
Through a story I hadn’t quite seen before,
I hadn’t understood like I began to understand

My heart began to be moved
By an ancient people
With a rich heritage
And a hope still to come
