Our God is the Holy One of Israel! (Isaiah 49:7) American Psalms wishes to say Chag Sameach to our Jewish brothers and sisters celebrating Passover. May the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob bless your households richly. The Lord will protect His people and preserve His nation. Blessings and Shabbat Shalom to each of you.
May the Lord especially bless those who serve away from their families this Passover week in our Military. We are grateful for your sacrifice.
As Christians, we must remember that Passover is at the very root of our salvation. We know we can trust the promises of our Father, because He has proven to be faithful to Israel. He is a God who keeps his promises. As we pray for America, it is important to remember Israel and the Jewish people in our prayers. In Genesis 12:3 God promises to bless nations who support Israel and curse those who do not. The commandment is clear and God’s commitment to the Jewish people is irrevocable. For the sake of blessings on America, remember to pray for Israel.
For those using our weekly devotional, American Psalms: Prayers for the Christian Patriot, there’s a prayer for Israel on page 93 along with an explanation why it is so important to pray for Israel as you pray for America. There’s also a prayer specifically for the Jewish people on page 95. (Also available on Kindle).
