Prayer Focus week 15 (Sunday-Shabbat)
FOCUS: Rosh HaShanah
The season of Tshuvahis drawing to a close as Rosh haShanah ( Sept 28), followed by Yom Kippur the next Shabbat are coming quickly.
G-d’s Holy Days are an integral part of his calendar – and every year are becoming more a part of our personal one as well.
Verses upon which to meditate: Psalm 122:6 "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. May they prosper who love you."
o “These are the appointed feasts of the LORD that you shall proclaim as holy convocations; they are my appointed feasts’” Lev 23:2, NIV.
The Festival of Trumpets (Rosh haShanah): 1
“‘On the first day of the seventh month hold a sacred assembly and do no regular work. It is a day for you to sound the trumpets. 2
As an aroma pleasing to the LORD, offer a burnt offering of one young bull, one ram and seven male lambs a year old, all without defect. 3
With the bull, offer a grain offering of three-tenths of an ephah[a]
of the finest flour mixed with olive oil; with the ram, two-tenths[b]
and with each of the seven lambs, one-tenth.[c] 5
Include one male goat as a sin offering[d]
to make atonement for you. 6
These are in addition to the monthly and daily burnt offerings with their grain offerings and drink offerings as specified. They are food offerings presented to the LORD, a pleasing aroma,” Numbers 29:1-6.

We thank You that Your intervention into our lives is based upon You and Your faithfulness. We want to walk in a pleasing manner and upright before You….

We pray that You touch each of the needs on the list below.Help us to revere Your Holy Days even as You do. In Your most holy Name,we pray!”
