We have four boys who currently range in age from 13 to 19. I am continually trying to teach them to care for each other, live lives for the King, be true to their ingrafting and be warriors. When I saw this print in Israel six weeks ago, I almost immediately teared up as it so spoke to me concerning my own boys.
Well, today we picked it up from the frame shop and hung it prominently on a wall in our house to remind them daily of the things that are important. May they grow closer together as they pursue the King and take a strong stand on behalf of Israel and Jerusalem!!
The day we visited the Western Wall on my recent trip to Israel, we first went into the tunnels along the Wall that have been excavated deeply to the street level at the time of Yeshua. While there, women, young and old were walking in and out with prayer books. Once we got to the deepest part where we passed closest to the assumed placement of the Holy of Holies, we moved in hushed silence past a group of these ladies, seated and standing in prayer and davening as they cried out on behalf of Israel to the King of the universe. My heart was touched and I KNOW His heart is!
Here is a beautiful rendition of Isaiah 62 in Hebrew by a young lady that invokes memories of the emotions I felt in that passageway.
Indeed! For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent!
