sight. AND CONSIDER THAT THIS NATION IS YOUR PEOPLE.” And [the Lord] said, “My Presence will go with
you, and I will give you rest.” (Exodus 33:12-14)

OF THIS PEOPLE, I pray, according to the greatness of Your mercy, just as You have forgiven this people, from
Egypt even until now.” (Numbers 14:17-19)

3. Prayer for the 24/7 houses of prayer in Jerusalem.

...regard the prayer of Your servant and his supplication, O LORD my God, and listen to the cry and the prayer
which Your servant is praying before You today: THAT YOUR EYES MAY BE OPEN TOWARD THIS TEMPLE
night and day, toward the place of which You said, ‘My name shall be there,’ that You may hear the prayer which
Your servant makes toward this place. And MAY YOU HEAR THE SUPPLICATION OF…YOUR PEOPLE ISRAEL,
when they pray [in] this place. Hear in heaven Your dwelling place (1 Kings 8:28-30)

4. Prayer for the peace of Jerusalem.

O Lord, according to all Your righteousness, I pray, let YOUR ANGER AND YOUR FURY BE TURNED AWAY
FROM YOUR CITY JERUSALEM, Your holy mountain; because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers,
Jerusalem and Your people are a reproach to all those around us. Now therefore, our God, hear the prayer of Your
servant, and his supplications, and for the Lord’s sake CAUSE YOUR FACE TO SHINE ON YOUR SANCTUARY,
which is desolate. (Daniel 9:16-17)

5. Prayer for God to return to Israel.

…You, O LORD, shall endure forever, and the remembrance of Your name to all generations. You will ARISE AND
HAVE MERCY ON ZION; for the time to favor her, yes, the set time, has come. For Your servants take pleasure in
her stones, and show favor to her dust. So THE NATIONS SHALL FEAR THE NAME OF THE LORD, and all the
kings of the earth Your glory. For the LORD SHALL BUILD UP ZION; HE SHALL APPEAR IN HIS GLORY.
(Psalm 102:12-16)

to triumph in Your praise.. (Psalm 106:47)

and My daughters from the ends of the earth. (Isaiah 43:5-6)

WINGS...Behold, I WILL SEND YOU ELIJAH the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the
LORD. And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers lest I
