Yom Kippur prayers

Prayers on Yom Kippur                                                           Wednesday 19 September 2018

Today we consider our own lives and the lives of the Jewish people in Sydney and beyond. We pray to the Almighty for His forgiveness of our many sins, known and unknown, things done and left undone. We come with humble hearts and eager desire to know and be known by Him. Because of Yeshua, this is possible.

There are prayer books and prayer shawls available. Use them during this Hour of Prayer as you feel led.
There are moments of silence and times of corporate prayer where we pray the same prayers at the same time, but they are still ‘your’ prayers. We together seek God. We together want His Lordship over our lives. We together want so many things. 

Today, the Day of Atonement, we remove all the blockages and ask God to wipe our slates clean. Nothing is hidden that will not be exposed. He knows all things. 

Our prayer time will be composed of 
1)    Silence
2)    Prayers of confession
3)    Words of assurance of forgiveness. 
4)    Thanksgiving for His forgiveness
5)    Silence
6)    Intercessory prayers for our country, our municipalities and our world. Especially for those who govern and our choices in elections.
7)    Intercessory prayers for our Jewish people throughout the world
8)    Silence
9)    Intercessory prayers on behalf of those reaching out to our Jewish people in Israel and in the Diaspora
10)Prayers for our families
11)Final Thanksgiving


Selected corporate prayers:
Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed by Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. And lead us, not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.

Avinu Malkenu:
Our Father, our King, be gracious to us and answer us. For we have no good works in ourselves. Grant us righteousness and mercy, and save us. 

Shema:
Hear o Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. 
Blessed be the name of His glorious kingdom forever and ever.\
Because of the Messiah, Yeshua, our Great High Priest, we have boldness to come before God’s throne and seek Him and know we are heard. If we pray according to God’s will, we know He hears us, and thus have the answers to the prayers we pray. 



 “AND THEIR SINS AND THEIR LAWLESS DEEDS 
            I WILL REMEMBER NO MORE.” 
Now where there is forgiveness of these things, there is no longer any offering for sin. 
Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. 
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another;and all the more as you see the day drawing near.”  (Hebrews 10.17-25)

 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3.16)

“God made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” (2 Corinthians 5.21)
