JOIN JEWS AROUND THE WORLD IN REPENTANCE–TONIGHT YOM KIPPUR BEGINS

Heavenly Father, help us all to learn from this holy holiday, forgiving each other as You have forgiven us.

Millions of Jews around the world are preparing their hearts and minds for the holiest day on the Jewish calendar – Yom Kippur – or the Day of Atonement.

Yom Kippur begins on the evening of Tuesday, October 8 and will end Wednesday evening, October 9. Yom Kippur is a solemn day of prayer and fasting.

IFA recently published a wonderful 7-day devotional series, leading readers through areas of repentance. Today is a good time to sign up for the series and cry out to God in repentance and humility.

In Israel, the entire country stops for 25 hours as Jews go to synagogues with their families to ask God to forgive them and the entire Jewish people of their sins. The roads shut down and the highways go silent in observation of this holy day. Ben Gurion International Airport takes a daylong hiatus, along with television and radio.

While the country prays and fasts, police and paramedics will be on guard to respond to any emergency calls.

Yom Kippur is set to begin at 5:40 p.m. on Tuesday in Jerusalem and 5:55 p.m. in Tel Aviv. It will end on Wednesday at 6:51 p.m. and 6:53 p.m. respectively.

During this time, Jews pray the “Viddui“, a prayer of repentance and a plea for forgiveness.

More than 1.5 million people have flocked to the Western Wall in Jerusalem over the last month to prepare for Yom Kippur and the other Jewish holidays.

On Monday, more than 100,000 people went to the Western Wall plaza for a late-night Slichot Service. The slichot are Jewish penitential prayers and poems recited in the lead up to Yom Kippur.

Rev. David Pileggi, who serves as the Rector of Christ Church in Jerusalem, told CBN News that Christians have something to learn from Yom Kippur.

“Now we have a saying of Jesus, don’t we?  It says, if you bring your gift to the altar and your brother has something against you, leave your gift at the altar and go and be reconciled with your brother,” said Pileggi.

“Jewish tradition says go and get your relationship right with your neighbor, with your brother, with your family member, forgive and then be reconciled and then on the day of atonement when you begin to fast and pray and to confess, then God will hear your prayer and forgive you as you have forgiven others.  The teaching of Jesus and it’s also something that’s part and parcel of Jewish tradition and here the two line up very nicely,” he added.

  1. Father, in the name of Jesus I pray for ALL of Your people, the Jewish people. Moooooove Your Holy Spirit as only You can in each heart, mind, and soul, and open eyes to see their Messiah, and unplug ears to “hear” Your Word and Your prompting to “hear” His Words of Redemption and mercy and grace. Oh hear our cries to moooove as only You can, as we come before You, to seek Your forgiveness, and to fast as You lead us, at this most pivotal time, acknowledging You as the living God, and Your only begotten Son, Jesus the Christ, Who so freely offers grace and mercy and forgiveness. May this holy time be imprinted on our hearts, minds, and souls, as we cry out to You and repent for ourselves and our country, and for Israel, in Jesus name, amen.

  2. ‪Wishing a meaningful Yom Kippur to all of the Jewish people. On this “Day of Atonement”, I pray for a year of prosperity, blessings and peace for all of God’s people around the world. God bless Israel. And bless the Lord O my soul! Amen!

  3. Dear Father In Heaven,
    Please help each of us Christians forgive those who have hurt us. Bring healing and restoration to each of our individual families and to the family of God.
    Help us be conscious of our personal need for forgiveness when we have hurt others by our words or actions or failure to do what we should.
    Cause us to think about all that Jesus endured for us.
    Cleanse our hearts and minds of anger, malice, and unforgiveness so that we are free to live each day walking in Your love and forgiveness.
    I praise You, Jesus, for giving us the perfect example to follow, even praying forgiveness for those who nailed Him to the cross.
    I ask that this powerful work of forgiveness be done in each of our lives in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
