Hello you people who love others in distress as though it was you or your own loved ones. I appreciate you, I see you, and am grateful for your hearts. Your vision and your work matters, we need you.
I hope to come alongside you today by sharing another recording from Beloved Prayers, prayer seventeen. Press play below if you’d like to join me. Thank you for being here, for remembering our brothers and sisters around the world in prayer and deed.
As I write this to you there has been a recent terrorist attack in Tel Aviv. I am glad to come together with a prayer that has a focus on Israel.
Something I haven’t shared a lot, about the book, is that it is also a simple Hebrew Alphabet primer—complete with hand drawn illustrations by our daughter Selah. This week’s letter is nun, and it has me thinking about Deuteronomy 4:15 in which nun begins the Hebrew word nephesh, that is often used for soul, breath, life. It is instructed to be guarded very carefully, scrupulously.
May these few minutes come to you as an invitation to breathe deep, nourishing your own soul as you also breathe out life in the spiritual realms. Also, here’s a song you can close your eyes to while taking those deep breaths 🙂
Raynna, for the whole gang
P.S. Please share with anyone else you know who has a heart for the persecuted. Thank you.
The work is not yet finished, let’s stay faithful—together.
“Let the word of Messiah dwell in you richly,
teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms,
and hymns and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God.”
