Amidah - For Peace

The Amidah - called The Standing Prayer, was composed around 450 BCE, by the 120 Men of the Great Assembly, including Ezra and Nehemiah at the time of the rebuilding of the Temple. It was to be said while standing. Three (3) times a day at the hours of prayer: 9:00 am, 12:00 pm and, 3:00 pm. 

FOR PEACE: Grant peace, welfare, blessing, grace, lovingkindness and mercy to us and to all Israel Your people. Bless us, Our Father, one and all, with the light of Your countenance; for by the light of Your countenance You have given us, Oh Lord our God, a Torah of life, lovingkindness and salvation, blessing, mercy, life and peace. May it please You to bless Your people Israel at all times and in every hour with Your peace. 


****************************************************************

In the books of Acts we find Peter and John entering the Temple at the hour of the prayer referring to saying the Amidah.It is literally called the hour of the prayer in the literal translations. Here we have a man, who according the Scriptures was:

Acts 4:22 For the man was above forty years old, on whom this miracle of healing was showed.

Do You realize that meant Yeshua probably walked past him a minimum of 100 times in the temple and never healed him! This happened after Yeshua died at around 33 years of age and this man who was only 7 years older than Yeshua had been lame from his birth.

Acts 3:1-2 Now Peter and John wet up together into the temple at the hour of the prayer, after being the ninth hour. And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;

Every Jew would love to be standing during the standing prayer. So here, we have the Holy Spirit at the specific time of the Amidah strengthening this man's ankles!

Acts 3:6-9 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have - give I thee: In the name of Yeshua HaMashiach of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God. And all the people saw him walking and praising God:

God was waiting for all to be gathered in the Temple so at the very moment of the Amidah, while all Israel was praising God, to heal this man. And I wouldn't be surprised if it happened at the very moment the part of the prayer for healing was being said, that the man started whooping and hollering and giving God the glory!! Look at me! I'm standing during the Standing Prayer!!! God does heal!!! 

For 40 years he had heard or said this prayer, always wondering if it was true! Do You know this was the very prayer they were saying right before the Spirit fell at Pentecost! It was the 3rd hour, the time of the morning prayers! Remember this was written hundreds of years before Messiah, so go read again the section called the God of Nature and remember - Yeshua had also just risen from the dead!!

Prayers for Forgiveness

We usually say this as a congregation on Yom Kippur, but since we are in the 40 Days of Repentance I thought it fitting to share it now.

Daniels prayer:
(AKJV) Daniel 9:3-10 And I set my face to the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes: And I prayed to the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments; We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from your precepts and from your judgments: Neither have we listened to your servants the prophets, which spoke in your name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land. O LORD, righteousness belongs to you, but to us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries where you have driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against you. O Lord, to us belongs confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against you. To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him; Neither have we obeyed the voice of the LORD our God, to walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets.

We repent for the early church fathers who also refused to walk in Your laws and led us astray by the erroneous teaching of replacement theology. We acknowledge the verse from 
(KJV) Jeremiah 16:19: O Lord, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit.

For the sin which we have committed before You by hard-heartedness. 
For the sin which we have committed before You with immorality. 
And for the sin which we have committed before You openly or secretly. 
For the sin which we have committed before You with knowledge and with deceit. 
For the sin which we have committed before You by deceiving a fellowman. 
And for the sin which we have committed before You by improper thoughts. 
For all these, God of pardon, pardon us, forgive us, atone for us 

For the sin which we have committed before You by disrespect for parents and teachers. 
And for the sin which we have committed before You by desecrating the Divine Name.  

For the sin which we have committed before You by impurity of speech. 
And for the sin which we have committed before You by foolish talk. 
For the sin which we have committed before You with the evil inclination.  For all these, God of pardon, pardon us, forgive us, atone for us. 

For the sin which we have committed before You by false denial and lying. 
And for the sin which we have committed before You by evil talk about another. 
For the sin which we have committed before You in business dealings. 
And for the sin which we have committed before You through eating and drinking. 
And for the sin which we have committed before You by a glance of the eye. 
For the sin which we have committed before You with proud looks.  For all these, God of pardon, pardon us, forgive us, atone for us. 

For the sin which we have committed before You in passing judgment. 
And for the sin which we have committed before You by a begrudging eye.  
For the sin which we have committed before You by running to do evil. 
And for the sin which we have committed before You by tale-bearing. 
And for the sin which we have committed before You by causeless hatred.  For all these, God of pardon, pardon us, forgive us, atone for us. 

Together: You are the Pardoner of Israel and the Forgiver of sins in every generation, and aside from You we have no King who forgives and pardons. We thank you Lord that we have forgiveness through the shed blood of Messiah Yeshua. 

Avinu malkeinu,  sh’ma kolenu. 
Our Father our King, hear our voice.
Our Father our King, we have sinned before You 
Our Father our King, have compassion for us, and also on our children  Our Father our King, bring an end to pestilence, war and famine around us  Our Father our King, bring an end to all trouble and oppression around us. 
Our Father our King, Our Father our King, inscribe us in the book of life 
Our Father our King, renew upon us, renew upon us a good year 
Hear our voice, hear our voice, hear our voice 
Our Father our King, Our Father our King, renew upon us a good year 
Our Father our King, hear our voice, hear our voice, hear our voice
