“But you, Isra’el, my servant; Ya’akov, whom I have chosen, descendants of Avraham my friend, 9 I have taken you from the ends of the earth, summoned you from its most distant parts and said to you, ‘You are my servant’ – I have chosen you, not rejected you. 10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you; don’t be distressed, for I am your God. I give you strength, I give you help, I support you with my victorious right hand. 11 All those who were angry with you will be disgraced, put to shame; those who fought against you will be destroyed, brought to nothing. 12 You will seek them but not find them, those who contended with you; yes, those who made war with you will be brought to nothing, nothing at all. 13 For I, ADONAI, your God, say to you, as I hold your right hand, ‘Have no fear; I will help you. 14 Have no fear, Ya’akov, you worm, you men of Isra’el!’ I will help you,” says ADONAI; “Your redeemer is the Holy One of Isra’el.
You who live in the shelter of ‘Elyon, who spend your nights in the shadow of Shaddai, 2 who say to Adonai, “My refuge! My fortress! My God, in whom I trust!” — 3 he will rescue you from the trap of the hunter and from the plague of calamities; 4 he will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his truth is a shield and protection.
5 You will not fear the terrors of night or the arrow that flies by day, 6 or the plague that roams in the dark, or the scourge that wreaks havoc at noon. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand; but it won’t come near you. 8 Only keep your eyes open, and you will see how the wicked are punished.
Last Shabbat, Rabbi Lawrence Hirsh from the Beit HaMashiach Congregation, discussed one of the most fundamental principles of prayer, that is to pray in the name of Yeshua, our Messiah. This principle to pray in the name of a person also appears in Genesis 24:12 and is also practiced in Orthodox Judaism. Please note that we, as believers in Yeshua the Messiah, pray in the name of Yeshua, because Yeshua indicated that in Matthew 28:18 CJB “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. And further in John 14:6 Yeshua said, “I AM the Way — and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except through me. Lawrence also reflect on principles about prayer from both her life.
