November 25: Gathering and Return of the Jewish People

Psalm 147:1-5

Praise the Lord! 
For it is good to sing praises to our God; 
for it is pleasant, and praise is beautiful.

The Lord builds up Jerusalem; 
He gathers together the outcasts of Israel.

He heals the brokenhearted
 and binds up their wounds.

He counts the number of the stars; 
He calls them all by name.

Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; 
His understanding is infinite.

The Psalmist combines the wonder of the Creation with God’s gathering and returning of the Jewish people to restore Jerusalem and the land.

PRAY FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN WOUNDED, BROKEN AND FEARFUL TO LOOK TO GOD FOR RESTORATION AND RETURNING.
