 Day 11 (May 17) - Isaiah 62 Fast


“The word of the LORD came to Jeremiah: ‘Have you not observed what these
people are saying, “The LORD has rejected the two families which he chose”?
Thus, they have despised my people so that they are no longer a nation in their
sight. Thus says the LORD: If I have not established my covenant with day and
night and the ordinances of heaven and earth, then I will reject the descendants
of Jacob and David my servant and will not choose one of his descendants to
rule over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. For I will restore their fortunes
and will have mercy upon them.’” Jeremiah 33:23–26 RSV

The rejection or the replacement of Israel is not a new topic. The
intensity of God’s judgment on Israel along the centuries has brought
many to wonder if God was still in covenant with Israel. The exile, the
first destruction of Jerusalem, and the absence of a king on the throne of
David opened a crisis of faith within the people. Were the dramatic events
showing that God had ended His covenant because of the many sins of
His people?

God addresses the issue through the prophet Jeremiah. He rebukes the
people who say that the Lord has rejected the families of Jacob, Israel,
and David—the royal line. God confirms His covenants with the two families
that He chose.

The Lord uses powerful language. His covenants with them are as strong
as the cosmic order He set in place. He will not reject them as long as
day and night exist. God will have mercy upon them as long as the fixed
order of heaven and earth stands. He has established immutable cosmic
laws visible in the created order; similarly, His covenants with Israel and
David are irreversible. Israel will remain God’s firstborn son and the son
of David—Jesus—will sit on the messianic throne in Jerusalem forever.


Our Father,

We bless Your holy name. We thank you for Your faithfulness to Your
covenants with Israel. You are true to Your words. You are faithful to Your
promises. You always keep Your part of the covenants You established
with Your people.

We pray that the Jewish people will come back to Your covenants, see
Your faithfulness in spite of the tragedies they have experienced, and see
You as You indeed are.

We pray that You give us a deeper understanding of Your covenants.
Grant us to know You as the covenant-keeping God. Anchor our faith in
the solid foundations of Your covenants so we will be unshakable when
everything is shaking.

In the name of Jesus. Amen.


Day 11 (Day 41 of the Omer, 17 May 2023)

Verse 10(a) “Go through, go through the gates! Prepare the way for the people.”

Ancient of Days, You have graciously opened for us gates, both new and old, for Your covenant
restoration of Israel. I ask You now to open ancient gates, specifically of righteousness, for the
next, new phase of Israel’s promised restoration. I prophetically proclaim in the Name of
Yeshua, Lift up your heads, O you gates … and the King of Glory shall come in! I ask You to post
angelic and human keepers at these gates who will prove faithful to Your covenant and help
prepare the way of righteousness for the people.
Bless our gate keepers with hearts to seek righteousness as in days of old. Anoint them in their
appointed realms of religion, government, security and defense, finance, education, media,
agriculture, industry, science, health care, high tech, the arts, housing, transportation and every
other realm of society.
As You open gates of righteousness, please, my God, raise up prophets in Israel as in days of
old. Anoint them to expose unrighteousness and to prepare a new way of righteousness. Grant
them access to the gate keepers You appoint. Prepare the way for them to serve together.
I also ask You to open gates of understanding and fervent prayer for Israel in Your ekklesia
around the world. Raise up gatekeepers of intercession for Israel in every tribe and nation.

Anoint prophets around the globe to beckon their own people to go through new-old gates,
contending in love for Zion’s sake, for Your Name’s sake.
For You do not want the Church to be “ignorant of this mystery” that “blindness in part” has
happened to Israel “until the fullness” of the Gentiles has come in – and in this way (according
to the Greek) all Israel will be saved, for that is Your “covenant with them” (Romans 11:25-26).
Revealer of Mysteries, teach Your beloved Church how to attain to fullness and prepare the
way for Israel to be saved.

Thank You that by Your grace, my prayers are received in heaven and move Your heart and
