Prayers for Temple De Hirsch Sinai

 

Adonai,

I recently heard of the hate crime of vandalism to Temple De Hirsch Sinai in Seattle, WA. The graffiti says “Holocaust is Fake History”. Adonai I pray for the Jewish community in Seattle, Washington right now. Adonai I pray you will guide Rabbi Daniel Weiner on how to encourage his synagogue after experiencing such hate. Adonai I pray for a hedge of protection over him and his family. Holy Spirit I pray you will hover over the synagogue and restore your peace in the hearts of the community. Adonai I pray the synagogue will inhabit your praise and lament prayers. Adonai I pray they will remember that you will never leave them or forsake them.  Adonai give them the strength to forgive and walk into their healing. Adonai – may their hearts be filled with love, joy, peace, hope and not fear.

Adonai we pray for the people who decided to write those hurtful words on the building. Adonai you’ve called us to love our enemies.  Adonai I pray you will pursue their hearts. Adonai where there is hate I boldly ask that you soften hearts and make it flesh. It says in Ezekiel 36:26 -” I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh” Adonai I pray the bomb threats will stop and that the police will be able to track down the accusers. AdonaiI pray for the Jewish community and pray there will be a increase of love not hate. Adonai we lift up all these petitions to you. AMEN
