November 13: Gathering and return of the Jewish people

Today we will pray from the same prophesy of Isaiah but this time with the emphasis on “aliyah,” the term that describes the Jewish people “coming up” home to Israel.

Isaiah 11:11-12

It shall come to pass in that day

That the Lord shall set His hand again the second time

To recover the remnant of His people who are left,

From Assyria and Egypt,

From Pathros and Cush,

From Elam and Shinar,

From Hamath and the islands of the sea.

He will set up a banner for the nations,

And will assemble the outcasts of Israel,

And gather together the dispersed of Judah

From the four corners of the earth.

Isaiah 14:1

For the Lord will have mercy on Jacob, and will still choose Israel, and settle them in their own land. The strangers will be joined with them, and they will cling to the house of Jacob.

PRAY FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO HEAR AND OBEY GOD’S CALL TO “COME HOME.”
