 Day 5 (May 11) - Isaiah 62 Fast


“‘The LORD your God, who goes before you, He will fight for you, according to
all He did for you in Egypt before your eyes, and in the wilderness where you
saw how the LORD your God carried you, as a man carries his son, in all the way
that you went until you came to this place.’ Yet, for all that, you did not believe
the LORD your God, who went in the way before you to search out a place for
you to pitch your tents, to show you the way you should go, in the fire by night
and in the cloud by day.” Deuteronomy 1:30–33 NKJV

God expresses His love for Israel in the language of a Father taking
good care of His son. God is to Israel everything that a good father
is to his young son. God leads the way. He doesn’t send His children
wandering helplessly in the desert of life. God provides orientation and
direction to His family. He fights for His children. Acting as a father, He
doesn’t leave them defenseless. He watches that no one will prey on
them. He carries His firstborn son on His shoulders when he has no more
strength to walk in the wilderness. He bears the weaknesses of His people.

God goes before Israel to search out a place for them to pitch their tents.
He goes ahead and prepares a place of rest and safety. He displays
His fatherly care in every possible way toward Israel, thus revealing His

God is so near Israel. He walks with her and shares her existence and
circumstances. As a father, God is neither distant nor indifferent. He is
the opposite of an absent father. God is actively involved in Israel’s life
journey. He continually brings positive and helpful input.


Our Father,

We bless Your holy name. We praise You for demonstrating Your fatherly
love to Israel in so many practical ways. Your care reveals who You are.
You delight to be actively involved in the life of the children of Israel. You
help the weary. You defend the weak. You go before Your people and
show the way. You enjoy walking with them and surrounding them with
safety. It breaks Your heart when they reject Your helping hand. It causes
You sadness when they want to walk without You.

Reveal Yourself to the Jewish people. Let them know that You desire a
father-to-son relationship and a father-to-daughter relationship with them.
Show them that Jesus the Messiah is the only way to You, that He is the
access point to Your father heart. Let them see that they can enter into an
intimate relationship with You by believing in their Messiah.

Make known Your tender care for Israel to the Body of Christ. Show us how
much You love Your firstborn son. Impart Your love for Israel to our hearts.

In the name of Jesus. Amen.


Day 5 (Day 35 of the Omer, 11 May 2023)

Verse 4 “You shall no longer be termed Forsaken, nor shall your land be termed Desolate; but you shall be called Hephzibah [“My delight is in you”] and your land Beulah [“Married”], for the Lord delights in you and your land shall be married.”

Creator of All Things, You have granted us stewardship of land that is uniquely precious to You. You harbor tender love for this land and even have compassion on it. On my knees and on behalf of my people, I thank You for the honor of living in this land. Let us never worship the land, but let the land summon us to worship You, its true Owner. Remind us by Your Spirit that how we relate to the land reflects how we relate to You. The life of the land flows from the life we graciously have in You. In Yeshua’s Name I re-dedicate the land, the literal ground of Zion, to serve its Creator. I bless the land as married, for His delight. As in ancient times, we depend on You, O God, to provide rain for our land. I ask You to water our dry and thirsty ground. Provide for our crops and sustain us, for Your Name’s sake. Open the heavens and pour down Your mercies. Thank You for the wonder-working water technologies You have shown and given to Israel.

May all praise for this go to You. Creator of heaven and earth, I petition You to release to Israel all the land You want us to have, now and in times ahead. Judea and Samaria, with its altars of holy covenant from long ago, still lie in the hands of those who plot our destruction. Deliver Your land to Your people and deliver Your people to Your land, according to Your will and Your ways. Let Your justice prevail for all who dwell in Judea and Samaria, both Arabs and Jews. Protect the land and people from destruction and death by enemy attack. Do not allow, O God, the peoples to wrongly divide up Your land. Protect the borders of Israel by the overpowering Blood of Yeshua. Concerning Jewish people still scattered in the nations, summon them home to the land in aliyah. Provide all they need in every respect so they can stay in the land and marry it. Remove the unjust prohibition against aliyah for Jews who believe in Jesus. Bless all who make aliyah to the land so that even more importantly, they would make aliyah to the Lord.

Thank You for answering my requests according to Your ways that are greater than mine.
