Prayer אבינו מלכנו Avinu Malkeinu (“Our Father Our King”)
Lamentations 3:40 (TLV): “Let us examine and test our ways, and let us return to Adonai.”
Considering that we have recently entered the Biblical Year of 5781 ( Aleph-Father and Pey-Voice), we pause to give thanks and praise to Avinu Malkeinu (Our Father God Our King), Our Lord and Redeemer, Yeshua Jesus Christ, and Ruach HaKodesh! As we pray, let us meditate upon the great love that Elohim hath demonstrated for all mankind, such that He created an entire Planet (the Earth) just for us to richly enjoy! And for our redemption, He sacrificed His Son, Yeshua, from the foundation of the Earth! No greater gifts of Agape Love than the laying down of His Son’s Life, Yeshua and the Gift of Promise, the Ruach HaKodesh!
From the time of creation of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, Elohim has provided for all of our needs that we might live the abundant life of which comes only through by faith in His Beloved Son, Yeshua Jesus! Because of His Great Love for us: Life in His Spirit, Goodness, Faithfulness, Truth, Grace, Mercy, we give Him our hearts full of thanks and praise (Hallelujah)! As we near the end of almost 6000 years later, we seek to worship and praise Abba with all of our hearts, soul, mind, and strength!
Now that we are in the midst of the Fall Feast Days, we have already celebrated the first of the three Fall Feasts (Leviticus 23) (Rosh (head) Hashanah (Year); the coronation of our King, may our hearts continue to commune with Abba in Spirit and in Truth! Isaiah 55:6: “Seek G-d when He is to be found; call on Him when He is near!”
May we all prepare our spiritual ears to hear the, “Joyful Sound of the Last Trump-the Shofar (1 Corinthians 15:52)” (the Voice of God) that we might be caught up to meet Him in the air and “Tabernacle” (Feast of Tabernacles) with our LORD and Savior Jesus Yeshua, Messiah and King forever! Until such time comes, we will continue to fight the “Good Fight of Faith” that we might finish our course as assigned to us by the Ruach HaKodesh!
Avinu Malkeinu, (Our Father Our King): In the Name of Yeshua, we draw near to You during the Second Fall Feast (the Day of Atonement-seeking forgiveness and cleansing from our sins)! We also embrace the “joyful celebration” of the Third Feast, the Feast of Tabernacles! We now prepare for the “Dress Rehearsal.”
As we have already entered into the Ten (10) Days of Awe, Introspection and Repentance, we pray that You will take note and hear our confessions and forgive us of our sins, transgressions and iniquities committed against You and our fellow man. We lift up Psalm 130 as a Prayer of Intercession on behalf of the Israel (the Jewish People), Your beloved: “Out of the depths I cry to You, Adonai!
Lord, hear my voice! Let Your ears be attentive to the sound of my supplications. If You, Adonai, kept a record of iniquities—my Lord, who could stand? For with You there is forgiveness, so You may be revered. I wait for Adonai, my soul waits, and in His word I hope. My soul waits for my Lord, more than the watchmen that watch for the morning, O Israel, wait for Adonai. For with Adonai there is loving-kindness, and with Him is full redemption, and He will redeem Israel from all its iniquities.”
Avinu Malkeinu, (Our Father Our King): Abba, we pray You extend Your Great Grace and Mercies to Israel (all of the Jewish people) who have a heart toward You, but do not yet know You! We also pray for the Messianic Community of Believers, and the Body of Christ that they not be fearful to preach the Gospel of Yeshua to the Jewish Nation!
We pray that through “Divine Revelation” You reveal Yourself to all who seek Your Face with all of their hearts. Abba, during the upcoming “Day of Atonement,” we pray for the Jewish people (both Orthodox and Secular) to come into the knowledge and understanding that You have already paid the price for their salvation with Your own Blood as the Sacrificial Lamb of God, and that there is no need for further Animal Sacrifices. We pray for the Jewish Nation to hear and receive the Gospel of Yeshua, the Kingdom of God, and be saved!
Avinu Malkeinu, (Our Father Our King): As we turn our prayers toward our Congregation, the Prayer List, and our Friends; praying for Your continued blessings of Shalom, Healings, Miracles, Strength, Provision, and Protection be upon all of us!. We also pray Your continued blessings be with and upon our leaders, Rabbi Jeffrey and Dr. Barri Seif! We pray that You will strengthen us with the Spirit of Might in our Inner Man so that we will be able to stand in this last hour (Ephesians 3:16)!
We, therefore, return and give thanks and praise to You for the prayers You have already answered! We also pray that You will hear and answer the prayers of all the saints who are faithfully praying for mercy, righteousness and justice, and peace in our nation!
Many of Your saints are fasting and praying for You to hear from Heaven and heal our land 2 Chronicles 7:14! We pray for our National Leaders, President Trump and his administration! We pray You give them wisdom, knowledge, and understanding so as to bring restoration of righteous laws and justice to our nation!
Avinu Malkeinu, (Our Father Our King), we pray and ask for the release of Your angels (Psalm 91) to take charge over the appointment of a new Supreme Court Justice; and that Your “Will” will be done! We pray and ask for the restraint all of the evil one and his wicked plans to steal, kill and destroy our nation. We pray for the revealing and dismantling of all the hidden evil plans and plots of the enemy to create chaos and fear during the November Elections. We lift our eyes up unto to You, Our Father Our King!
Avinu Malkeinu (Our Father Our King): We thank You for hearing all of our Prayers of Repentance, Confessions, and requests for Your Divine release of Grace and Mercy! May the names of all who seek, believe, and confess Yeshua as LORD, be written in the Book of Life; that when the Books are opened on that Great Day, there will be much rejoicing and celebration!. May You be glorified and magnified and Your Name be exalted during these High Holy Days; Your Appointed time to be found of those who seek You Early!
Amen and Amen!
