A PRAYER TO YEHOVAH

By David Horowitz

Courtesy of Jim Tabor, I include here the text of a moving, Biblically based, Prayer. This Prayer captures the heart and core of YEHOVAH God's Truth for all mankind. I know of none quite like it. It is intended for both Jews and Gentiles (Israelites) alike. It reflects, in personal and devotional language, all that we have set forth in this magazine. I offer it to you. If it becomes your prayer, then you will have joined with others of like faith who "Wait upon YEHOVAH" in these dramatic and fearful times in which we live.

God of gods, Lord of lords, the Great, the Mighty, the Awesome, whose Name alone is YEHOVAH, the Eternal God of Hosts, God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Our Father, we fervently call upon You. 

Ah Lord God, we are but dust and ashes! We are ashamed and embarrassed to lift our faces to You, for our iniquities have risen above our heads, and our guilt has grown even to the heavens. It is not on account of our own righteousness that we offer these supplications before You, but on account of Your great compassion. What are we? What is our life? What is our goodness? What is our righteousness? What is our strength? In Your presence, Oh God, we are as nothing. 

Yet You have declared Yourself merciful and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in lovingkindness and faithfulness. You made the heavens and the earth by Your great Shekinah power and by Your outstretched arm. Nothing is too difficult for You. You are the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, keeping covenant forever,showing mercy to thousands who fear Your Name and keep Your Commandments. Now for a brief moment you have shown grace to us in leaving an escaped remnant who sigh and cry over all the abominations of Israel and the nations. 

You have declared, YEHOVAH, our God, RETURN TO ME, AND I WILL RETURN TO YOU. We do RETURN O God! We fervently call upon You, we cry out to You, to SEND THE REDEEMER, to regather the lost sheep of all Israel, to crush the evil ways of the wicked. We long for that day when Your Truth will go forth from Zion to all the nations, when darkness will flee away, when the veil will be removed from all Israel and the nations, when the saints of the Most High will receive the Kingdom, when You will destroy the destroyers of the earth, when wars will be forever abolished, when justice and righteousness will fill the earth as the waters cover the sea, when You, YEHOVAH, will be King over all the earth and Your Name One. 

Oh YEHOVAH our God, God of Abraham Your friend, we call upon You together on this day, at this hour. Oh YEHOVAH hear! Oh YEHOVAH forgive! Oh YEHOVAH hearken and act! Oh YEHOVAH delay not! For Your sake, and for Zion, and for Your people, and for all humankind. In the appointed TIME you will hasten it, for it will certainly come, it will not delay. We bow the knee, we sigh and cry, we turn to You, YEHOVAH, our Rock and our Redeemer. Hear our prayer O YEHOVAH, through Your first-begotten son, Yeshua the Messiah.
