Ten Days of Awe – Ten Days of Prayer – Day 1

Beginning with Yom Teruah (Rosh Hashanah) and ending with Yom Kippur are ten days also known as Yamim Noraim, the Days of Awe. Though this is not a Biblical designation for this period, it does convey the reverence and solemnity of the season.

Today, 1 Tishrei, is the first of the Days of Awe.

There are several traditions associated with these days. Batya Wootten in her book Israel’s Feasts and Their Fullness has suggested, “In honor of the Ten Days of Awe, and because we believe in the Father’s reunion plan for both the houses of Israel (Isaiah 11:13), we suggest praying the following during this time.” She then offers topics of prayer for each of these ten days.

Day 1: Pray that all Israel might come to true repentance, that they might be saved. Pray that they would put away all of their idols and be granted a new heart and a new spirit, that they might live and not die (Isaiah 30:15; Ezekiel 18:31-32). Pray that salvation in Yeshua will come to all Israel (Genesis 48:19; Romans 11:25,26; Ephesians 4:15; Matthew 1:21). Pray that the veil will be lifted from the eyes of both the houses of Israel so they will see the truth of Yeshua and cease to stumble over Him (Isaiah 8:14; Romans 11:25; John 2:22). Pray that as the Standard, Yeshua might be lifted up in all His glory, and that the world may see Him in truth, and not according to manmade religion (Isaiah 11:12).
