For the next four days we will pray and proclaim the words of the psalmist Korah.
In the first verse we hear the relationship between God, the people and the land of Israel. This relationship is unique among all other nations and all other lands.
Lord, You have been favorable to Your land; You have brought back the captivity of Jacob.
Even the land suffers when the people are separated from the land.
PROCLAIM THE LORD’S PROMISE TO GATHER AND RETURN THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO THE LAND HE PROMISED TO ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB.
