Appointed Times · This Shabbat

Counting the Omer and a prayer called Toda Lecha / תודה לך / Thank you

Shabbat Shalom, friends!

Between Pesach and Shavu’ot, we are commanded in Vayikra / Leviticus 23:15 to 16 “[f]rom the day after the day of rest -that is, from the day you bring the sheaf for waving -you are to count seven full weeks, until the day after the seventh week; you are to count fifty days; and then you are to present a new grain offering to ADONAI.” Counting of the Omer points to 50 days after ADONAI freed the Israelites from slavery in Egypt and giving of the Torah (ADONAI’S instructions) on Mount Sinai. It also points to the believers who received the Ruach HaKodesh (Acts 2 CJB) 50 days after Yeshua freed us from our sins. Tomorrow is day 33 of counting of the Omer.

As we’ve recently had Yom Yerushalayim (Jerusalem Day), commemorating the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem following the 1967 Six-Day War and 69 years since the establishment of the State of Israel, I wanted to say a prayer called Toda Lecha / תודה לך / Thank you to ADONAI. The establishment of the State of Israel is bible prophecy confirmed!

Our Father in Heaven, I want to say Toda Lecha / תודה לך / Thank you:

Thank you for your salvation;

Thank you for filling me with your Ruach;

Thank you placing Your Torah within us and on our hearts;

Thank you for opening my eyes to your salvation;

Thank you for returning us to the Land and restoring your nation;

Thank you for your grace;

Thank you giving us hope;

Thank you for our King and Messiah;

Thank you that we can walk with You and that we don’t have to follow man-made religious rules.

In the name of Yeshua haMashiach

Amen

I hope you have a peaceful Shabbat!
